Nigerian rapper and actor Ikechukwu has taken to hi social media page to reveal how an Uber driver saved him from dying after food poisoning.
In his post, he revealed how his friends refused to pick up their phones when he called them in the middle of the night, since he was all alone at home.
He however ordered an Uber ride, after which the driver took him to the hospital for treatment.
It was when the doctor revealed the source of the problem that he realised he would have died if he had not taken the drastic action to order the ride.
Read his post:
So i almost died on Saturday. Went to bed early but woke up round 2 cos i felt no.2 coming. Im on the throne waiting for the poop to poop. Omo nothing o but pain in stomach was on a rise. Next thing cramping turns to biting on the inside. To point i couldnt 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 becos it was blazing hot. And i couldnt move. Pains getting worse and worse. I start vomiting. At that point i call my gateman to come help me.
That one also didnt 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 cant 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 inlaw gets my bro and his wife to go pick me from there and take me to another hospital for stomach scans. I dont remember any of that.
When they ruled out appendicitis they concluded on acute food poisoning and moved me to Third hospital where my older sis in law who is in from yankee took over. And resuscitated me to life. My stubborn head forced them to discharge me the following day cos i could see and walk and i hate hospitals. Now the reason im sharing this is the story couldve been different.
U couldve 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 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 theres always a bigger better race and we teach ourselves to never be satisfied. All that shit gotta end. Im smelling the roses, im thanking God for keeping me and i am gonna take life easy , appreciate everyrhing as little ad they come.
I pray u all do too. God bless
