Born to a Kalyan couple Vishaka and Vinod Waghmare, Vidisha was suffering from ‘Blue Baby Syndrome’ which is caused by a heart defect. Doctors of Wadia hospital then performed 12 hours surgery post to which she suffered 6 heart attacks.
“Vidisha was only 45 days old and she started vomiting and fell unconscious. We woke her up but she again fell unconscious. Then we rushed her to a local nursing home where they advised us to go to B J Wadia hospital,” said Vishakha. At Wadia hospital, she was diagnosed with a heart defect called transposition of the great arteries which needed an operation.
