Hi, Sorry about this illness. The residual brain damage will result in a cerebral palsy like condition. Though healing power in babies is very good so one may expect 50-50 chance of some recovery, and baby may grow to be educable and become useful adult.

How do I see life ahead for him..how abt life span..
Pediatrician: Dr. Yogindra Vasavada, Pediatrician replied 1 year ago

There may not be any shortening of life span but the quality of life depends on future growth and development in baby's brain.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
