The family of a sickle cell patient who recently died following a power outage at a hospital where she had been receiving oxygen have taken to social media to mourn her.
The deceased’s sister wrote on IG;
…facing the reality of life is one hard thing to deal with! I know so many people see me looking all good and smiley for the gram! It is not always easy to hide the pains but I have been a fighter, I haven’t been fighting alone! Side by side I fought the battle of life with you Sis! Over 3 decades ago we were brought to this life with the Sickle Cell anemia! M not even going to mention how we faced rejection from our father! But I know things didn’t remain the same after we lost our mom 1997! Since then we realized she has actually been covering a big space … side by side we face terrible Crisis, life-threatening pain! Let’s go for “ Sickle Cells Forum” that is ur anthem every Sat! But I hate to accept the fact that I am one! But as I said you are a fighter! I had never been serious planning any wedding like I was with yours! Just so u know D.A I wouldn’t even bring out my camera to take pics if I know I would be wishing you a RIP with it! If I ever get mental stable I guess God has a plan! Nothing feels the same for me …I know you are in Good hands, I was not just expecting you to leave this knife in my heart! I had said you are very wicked .. say a lot of B.S in annoyance when i heard about your death but I forgive you! Not sure I would forgive my self for not raising the funds for bone marrow transplant as soon as I thought! My World has crashed once again! Now you left me with 3 kids to raise! Just know they r in save hands! You would prolly be alive if your first love didn’t let you down” … if I had raised money for bone marrow transplant” …. if the management of Epe General hospital did their Job, you were trying to survive with an oxygen gas mask! Then boom nepa took light and behold the “No Fuel Excuses” just so u know if it’s possible I would split my lifetime with you! … here i am lifeless, hopeless and saying a big thank you to every nurse that nonchalantly and sluggishly attended to my sis and another thank you to. @akinwunmiambode for killing all hopes I had in Epe, Lagos … and this Great Country… Rest In Peace Aderinsola Adebola Elizabeth
