Rapper Ikechukwu has narrated how he almost died but was saved by an Uber driver he ordered to rush him to a hospital after he suffered food poisoning.
Read his series of tweets below.
“So I almost died on Saturday.
Went to bed early but woke up around 2 cos I felt no.2 coming. I’m on the throne waiting for the poop to poop. Omo nothing o but the pain in stomach was on a rise. Next thing cramping turns to biting on the inside. To point i couldn’t stand.
All alone in my house, i start calling random friends. Nobody pick. At this point, i strip and put my stomach on my marble floor to cool the temp because it was blazing hot. And i couldn’t move. Pains getting worse and worse. I start vomiting. At that point, i call my gateman to come to help me.
That one also didn’t pick. Dozing . na so I just order uber. When the guy arrived i had him wake my stupid gateman. He helped me walk to the car and i made it to the hospital near my crib. I rush inside and collapse. I can’t even explain to them so i start pointing. Thank God.
The doctor smart. He pumped me with extreme painkillers and antibiotics. Na so my vision just blurrr and lost feeling in my legs and basically passed out while still conscious if that makes sense to u.
So apparently my brother in law who is a Gastroenterologist calls back my Missed call and the doctor answers and tells him. Bro in law gets my bro and his wife to go pick me from there and take me to another hospital for stomach scans. I don’t remember any of that. When they ruled out appendicitis they concluded on acute food poisoning.
And moved me to the Third hospital where my older sis in law who is in from Yankee took over. And resuscitated me to live. My stubborn head forcing them to discharge me the following day cos I could see and walk and I hate hospitals. Now the reason I’m sharing this is the story could’ve been different.
U could’ve been reading about my death this weekend. Life is quite unpredictable and precious. We spend so much time chasing after things we believe will provide happiness and comfort but the truth is we keep missing out on enjoying life as it is.
We have allowed ourselves get lost in A race that can truly never be won cos there’s always a bigger better race and we teach ourselves to never be satisfied. All that shit gotta end. I’m smelling the roses, I’m thanking God for keeping me and I am gonna take life easy, appreciate everything as little ad they come.
I pray u all do too. God bless”.
