It is exactly one year since producer Tedd Josiah’s wife Reginah Katar passed away, leaving him with a toddler.
Reginah passed away on 30 September, 2017 from internal bleeding which was caused by a blood disorder in which there were few platelets in her blood (commonly known as Thrombocytopenia).
In an interview with media outlets, Tedd Josiah narrated how his wife, who he was set to marry early this year passed away. He said;
SHE DIED FROM A VERY RARE CONDITION, WHICH OCCURS AMONG FEW WOMEN ACROSS THE WORLD, BUT IT IS VERY RARE TO BE DETECTED AMONG AFRICAN WOMEN. HER BLOOD PLATELET COUNT FELL BELOW NORMAL AFTER CHILDBIRTH. REGINA’S PLATELETS. A COMPONENT OF BLOOD WHOSE FUNCTION IS TO STOP BLEEDING BY CLUMPING AND CLOTTING BLOOD VESSEL INJURIES. WERE SO DILUTED, LEADING TO A SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED COUNT. SADLY, ALL THROUGH SHE HAD AN INTERNAL BLEEDING, WHICH HAD NOT BEEN DETECTED, NOR STOPPED, BECAUSE OF HER LOW PLATELET COUNT.
2am we woke up to breastfeed 🤱
Mommy had a headache 🤕
I got her painkillers that she threw up 🤮
Forced her to dress up so we dash to hospital.
She passed out in hospital
2 hours later she was gone.
I’ve played this night of my life over and over and over, I’ve hoped it was a dream and the love of my life, my best friend, would be back in bed with us breastfeeding. I’ve been angry at God for giving me a chance to really love with everything I had only to take that love away. I’ve hated the world, I’ve hated myself, I’ve wished, cried, longed.
You should be here with our baby, you should be here with our little cub, you should be teaching her the words, teaching her to sing if only half has good as you, teaching her to be a lady, you should come the the bathroom if only to watch me shave 😔😔😔😔 @reginahkatar all I could say as you slipped away from this life was “my love, my love, my love, my love. One year on it breaks me all over again. R I P MY LOVE 👪🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹.
