This was reblogged from another blog http://www.jmadreflects.wordpress.com
Visit the aforementioned blog and relate better to this story; this is just a sequel to the first, outlining the progress made so far in restoring little Kehinde to good health.
Just as the Lord carries the burdens of all those who are weary but heavy laden, so have these people, Aunty Jmad (the selfless blogger) & Ms Alaba (the devoted Corper) done; defending the defenseless, and helping those without a voice to be heard.
I’m learning to be more consistent in life. Truth
is, we never know how close we are to the finish
line when we throw in the towel. I did a little
follow up on Little Kenny to know how far we’ve
gone and when I say we, I mean everyone who
has contributed one way or the other, either by
retweeting, reblogging, sharing the story on
Facebook, offered prayers or paid in money into
the account. We are all in this together and I
want to say a big thank you for the support so
It’s been difficult meeting up with Alaba but
thankfully I met her with the twins last week at
T.Y. Danjuma Foundation and I must say Little
Kenny is a beauty to behold. He’ll definitely
grow into some handsome guy. I did a little
interview with Alaba to give an update on the
journey so far. So here we go
How has it been, since you took it upon
yourself to help?
It has not been easy for me at all. I even
missed my terminal clearance, am afraid it will
affect my N.Y.S.C. passing out but I don’t mind
because all the effort put in, is worth it.
Which hospital is handling his case?
We were previously going to Garki hospital but
recently referred to Abuja National hospital and
scheduled in two weeks’ time to see a
Consultant. It’s sad to see the attitude of some
of the doctors I’ve met; some have been so
nonchalant . One of the doctors said it’s a rare
case but it’s amazing to see some of them
treating the case as though it’s a common case.
For the first time since I’ve been seeing the
Doctors, an Egyptian called God’s name and told
the mum the child will be fine.
Can the operation be carried out in Nigeria?
A lot of doctors have advised he should go
abroad for proper treatment. They further said
a hospital with a Paediatric Intensive Unit, an
Anaesthesiologist will best hand his case.
What is the recent status of the diagnosis ?
His test result came out last week and the
following were certified normal; Spleen, Kidney,
Liver, Pancreas, Frontal part of Brain. The hernia
is growing bigger and another one (Inguinal) was
discovered. Initially it wasn’t visible which
means the neck of the hernia is small which can
lead to death by strangulation.
A brief summary of how far you’ve gone in
I am very grateful to those who have
contributed however little. At least I’m able to
pay his medical bills, food and also ease the
burden of his parents. In a week his account I
opened with N80, 000.00 increased to over
N700, 000.00. I was excited when a group of
mums called M.O.M. met us at Garki Hospital
and gave him some money. Some of them broke
down in tears; I had to hold myself back. If you
see him, you’ll also cry, but I don’t cry for
Kenny rather I cry because of the laid back
attitude of the doctors involved.
What would you want to say to those reading
I can’t thank you enough for your contribution
so far. Please don’t stop contributing so Kenny
can get quick and immediate attention. God will
repay everyone; a miracle will definitely come
your way. May we not be in this kind of
situation, but it could be either me or you.
Please help in any way you can.
That’s how far we’ve gone but I want to add
something. It’s easy for Alaba to get lost in the
shadow and no one will say anything about her;
I want everyone reading this to know she has a
good, fighting spirit. She went to T.Y. Danjuma
Foundation without knowing anyone there; she
just got the information from the internet and
headed there for help. Alaba you may have
heard this before, but you can never hear
enough of it. May God show up for you in a way
you’ll never imagine. For this singular act of
kindness, you’ve engraved your name on the
sand of time and nothing will wipe it away. You
are indeed a worthy vessel in God’s hand and
because you’re taking care of His own child
Kenny, He’ll take care of all that concerns you
including your N.Y.S.C.
To everyone reading this, thanks for sparing a
few minutes. It’s not over until we see Kenny
totally restored to good health. I’ll keep you
posted on the rest of his journey.
LOADS OF LOVE
