Journalist and media entrepreneur Azuka Ogujiuba has shared beautiful photos of herself to mark her birthday.
Writing on her Instagram, Azuka shared a recent death scare she suffered on her trip to the UK.
She had travelled to Los Angeles, she wrote, then Dubai and then the UK.
Two days after she arrived the UK, she passed out, and after being rushed to the hospital, she discovered she suffered from deep vein thrombosis, and blood had clotted in her lungs.
She’s so grateful she survived, she wrote, for another birthday and for every day.
Another lovely 13th of April, HBD 2 me. I am grateful to the big lion of my little but great kingdom.
Recently, l had a close shave with death. I love travelling to any part of the continent the plane can take me. This guilty pleasure of mine took a hard toll on my life.
I travelled to L.A. for 3 days, got back hopped into the next flight to Dubai, spent some days in Dubai and then off to the UK.
2 days after l arrived the UK, l passed out in the loo while doing no 1. I was revived. I went to the bathroom to have my bath, l passed out again and this time around my friend insisted on calling the ambulance before the conversation was over we heard the ambulance siren blasting in the neighbourhood. I was asked if l can walk to the ambulance?
I said l can but before l could take 2 steps l passed out again but this time when l was revived l found myself strapped to the stretcher with all kinds of wires on my body and the nurses struggling to keep me alive and at the same time chatting with me.
All this while l thought of my daughter and l wanted to speak with @[email protected]@[email protected]@africanprince007 I just wanted to plead with them to take care of my daughter because l know they can contribute money amongst themselves, and send her to school. They were trusted; tried and reliable friends.
The ambulance arrived The Queen Elizabeth hospital near Lewisham.
I was so weak and struggled to stay alive but then l made this my prayer point ‘I shall not die but live to declare the powerful work of God’ l asked the cute and handsome Dr giving me injections on my belly if l was going to make it?
I was admitted on the 12th August and discharged 19th August. The hospital bill cama and thst of my 6 months injection on my belly was quiet alarming but l was grateful l survived it.
I had deep vein thrombosis and the blood clotted in my lungs.
I survived it because l was told by some close friends who re Dr’s that if it happened in Naija that l will not survive it. And this death scare slowed my frequent trips.
And that’s why lam so grateful 4 another birthday and for every day.
