The Citizen News anchor has been admitted to hospital for a surgical procedure.
“ April 19th, 2010.I remember this day like it was yesterday...I was going for an assignment in Kisumu but on reaching Kapkatet it all happened so fast...I found myself at the Siloam hospital in Kericho first aid was being administered. Next thing I knew I was in the ambulance on my way to Nairobi for an emergency theatre at the Aghakhan Hospital.The next few months would be tough. If you would have asked me then if I thought I would be able to walk or be on my feet again, I wouldn't have imagined that was possible. But; Alhamdullilahi!!! It's been 7 years walking with a plate on my left femur.” Read part of her post.
After relying on the plate for 7 years, Lulu decided its time to remove the plate which had affected her walking style and posture for 7 years.
“ On the 30th October 2017, I finally gathered the courage to walk into theatre for a surgery to remove it ...I had been relying on this aluminium plate for the 7 years after the accident in 2010.... 7 years that saw my walking style and body posture change completely thus affecting my back and work not forgetting the excruciating pain I would have to endure whenever I wanted to lie down...Alhamdullilah after the Monday surgery; the plate is out...I will be in bed for some time to recuperate. I would like to thank my family, friends, my boss who constantly reminded me that I needed to do something...Dr Thuranira I don’t know how to thank you but you made me have faith with our medical practitioners and introduced me to one Doctor Mogire (He is God sent)...... ..To anyone going through a tough time now... Be encouraged. It shall pass.”
She also offered her plate to an elderly person who might be in need of it “I would like to donate the plate to any elderly patient who may need it and cannot afford it. ..hit my inbox.”
