Nollywood actress and model, Georgina Onuoha has revealed that while well-wishes were pouring in on her birthday, she was in the Emergency Room being treated for exhaustion, low hemoglobin and severe anemia.
The star actress explained via her Instagram page how she felt constantly tired and had to do a checkup which revealed the extreme situation. She wrote:
While the whole world celebrated my birthday on September 29, little did they know they were praying and wishing me well. Only few noticed I did not post any celebratory pictures.
With all the beautiful pictures that many cherished, loved and saved, little did they know I was lying down in the Emergency Room receiving blood transfusion, tons of Intravenous fluids. My life has always been a life of testimony. I didn’t know what was wrong, I was extremely fatigued. I take little walks; I’m panting like someone who just finished a marathon. I climbed the staircase, I feel like passing out.. I couldn’t even enjoy a beautiful beach walk with my love. I struggle with sleep, my brain can’t shutdown for the night. Things were not right. I called my primary care physician and went in for a checkup. I was sent to do Series of lab. Which I did and went home. Two days later, I was all fine and driving home and suddenly, I got that call. ” Gina she said! Where are you? I replied, I’m driving home. She said park your car and submit yourself to the ER. I said why? She said you could pass out any moment, your red blood count is extremely low, which means you are not getting enough oxygen circulation to your brain and heart. I was with my friend Kim. She took me to ER, I was treated for exhaustion, low hemoglobin and Severe Anemia. Tons of labs were done to figure out why I lost so much blood and survived that long with a hemoglobin count of 6. The rest is history. I was told by my doctor, Gina please rest, you need tons of sleep, and take it easy with studying. At every close encounter with my life God has and will continue to keep, watch and preserve my life. Who am I lord that you are so mindful of me? My lips will always praise and bless you my creator in whom I trust. Those who put their faith in God will never be disappointed. Thanks GG for always being there for me. Thanks @mskimberlyla for all the love and support. Thanks @naomiraheem I’m so glad to have you as a sister.. Thanks all for all the birthday prayers in September.. they made miracles happen in my life. For that I’m grateful ??.
I will end this year giving testimony. Watch this space ❤️️??
