Kris, wife to Nigerian comedian, Bovi has recounted her near death experience with a ruptured ectopic pregnancy.
The mother of three took to her Instagram page on Monday, January 24, 2022, to share a lengthy post of her experience with a photo and video.
She wrote, “Friday the 14th of January 2022. I had packed up my luggage preparing for my flight back to Lagos the next day being Saturday. But then I woke up with an excruciating pain. I couldn’t move, I couldn’t even turn, I had to stay still to control the pain.
I typically have a high threshold for pain. A very, very, very high threshold for pain, but this was even beyond labour pain. I couldn’t control it, I reluctantly called my husband. He had asked me to go to the hospital several times in the days leading up to this moment.
30 minutes later, this pain still wouldn’t go away. My husband again, asked me to go to the hospital but I said no. “I’ll be fine don’t worry, tomorrow I’m back home”. I have a 10 O’clock at David’s school, I can’t miss it.”
She narrated how she took pain medications for it but the pain still did not go away.
I took some pain killers, and it seemed like the pain was finally beginning to go down. I could stand upright at this point. About an hour later, I started to feel like I was going to pass out. I called 999 but I couldn’t speak, then I passed out. Somehow, I miraculously woke up to numerous missed calls from the emergency service,” she wrote.
I got up, put on my wig and found myself heading to see my son in school whilst in pain. I had genuinely assumed the pain had subsided. I promised I’d see my son by 10am and I wasn’t going to disappoint him, so I pushed my pain aside, ordered a taxi & found myself limping to his school.
She also said God used her son’s school nurse to intervene.
The minute David’s school nurse saw me, she could tell that I wasn’t okay. God used this lady to force me into a car and she specifically asked the driver to take me straight to the hospital. 2 hours later, I passed out again while waiting to see the doctor and the nurses were not even aware of what was going on.
By the time I got back into the GP’s office, she was going to send me home. All the tests done for signs of infections came back negative and the last bit was to do a scan “There’s no opening for a scan for you today, they are fully booked, you’ll have to come back tomorrow.”
She fainted again and the next thing she knew was being wheeled to the gynecology and maternity ward to get a scan. There, it was revealed that she was bleeding in her stomach due to the ruptured ectopic pregnancy and needed surgery as soon as possible.
She narrated that she was prepared for surgery and by then, her husband, Bovi and two of her friends were the only ones who knew about the situation.
For the first time in my life, I really craved for strength. And it was beyond physical strength. I was physically, emotionally & mentally drained. Nwando and her mum had rushed down to the hospital the minute I told her, Bovi was in panic & I.. I just hoped in God.”
Before I was wheeled into the theatre, all I could say was; “I am going to come out alive and stronger.” I testify today of God’s faithfulness to me. I am grateful to be alive. I am grateful to be well, and most of all, I am very grateful to have good people, a strong support system around me. This new year, I am alive and well and I’d be back home to my family and this party called life; soon ✌🏾”
Bovi and Kris have been married for 15 years and have three children together.
