Tabitha Ndichu, sister-in-law to Janet Mbugua, has opened up about her journey with fibroids and the challenges she has gone through.

Tabby is the founder of My Red Is Beautiful and also an advocate for women living with fibroids.

Speaking during Unscripted with Grace Msalame ,Tabitha said,

‘In 2016 September  we had just come from our honeymoon and its then that the symptoms started.

I was having heavy bleeding and very painful cramps.

It sucked because from painful sex to not being able to enjoy my experience as a new bride it crippled my life for me and my husband.

I used to have a 5 day period but when it went to 10 then 14 days I knew there was a problem.

It reached a point I couldn’t sleep’I couldn’t eat and I had to ask for more off days when my menses came.

Tabitha continued,

In 2017 February I had gone back to lose some weight to balance my hormones and try looking for a baby, I started feeling dizzy.

My trainer suggested I take some water but after that I couldn’t move he had to let me go home.

After that I was diagnosed with Anemia.You always look pregnant and people would constantly ask whether I was pregnant.

Tabitha has symptomatic fibroids meaning that they have grown inside the uterine cavity meaning when the child is trying to grow the fibroids compete for nutrients hence the miscarriages.

I have been pregnant twice the last two years. There are so many misconceptions on fibroids and people need to be educated.

I have missed so many events because I do not leave my house the first five days of my period. People sometimes feel like you are intentionally doing it.

I pray and hope that one day they will understand, its the only thing I can do.

Tabitha adds that she would really want to give her husband a child.

I would do anything to be able to give him that baby but I cannot do it.

I always see how much he loves kids.

The hardest thing to come to terms with is the fact that I might never be able to give my husband a child.

Tabitha narrated,

I have been to surgery three times and every time I would go home to recover I would get into depression.

I am tired of the pity party, I am tired of being angry at everyone. One day I even asked God to just let me not wake up.

Tabby went on to add that in March this year she had been pregnant but sadly the pregnancy did not go up to term.

‘Not many people know this but in March this year I was pregnant and that gave me some hope.

We kept the news between my husband and I. I can get pregnant but the issue is carrying the pregnancy to term.

Tabitha confesses that at some point she has questioned God.

I was very angry at God especially after my first miscarriage.I could not understand how he could let me go through this.

She added,

I came from the doctors office and the doctor told me that there were three gestational sacks but they were empty.

My pregnancies turned positive and my HCG levels kept rising but there was nothing.

I was angry, frustrated and confused. I asked God why he would give me the kids then take them away on Mother’s day last year I lost them.

I went into depression.

On how she keeps strong Tabby says that its by God’s grace.

‘God’s grace has been sufficient. My family and my husband have been very supportive.

I have also decided to create the life I would want for myself. Each day I wake up I stand by a mirror and proclaim all the things I can and will do.’

TV news anchor Anne Kiguta has announced that she would like to share with her fans more about her life.

However, she draws a line on exposing her children to the limelight.

Anne has three children, one from her previous marriage and fraternal twins with Jomo Gecaga.

Responding to a fan who asked her about her babies, Anne posted a photo of her and her twins but blocked out the faces.

In her response she explained,

“Gosh, so many of you have said this… was the number one response. Well, I will have to let you down on that my loves.”

She added,

“I’m rather traditional (believe it or not) so I’m vehemently against it. My babies are are all still too young, including the eldest, to be on social media.”

Anne continued,

“In fact I really regret having posted my eldest at all. Mummy already has a pretty public life. They deserve their privacy.”

But not to break her fans hearts, Anne promised,

“A reference every once in a while but nothing more than that for a long long time.  Hope  you understand.”

In another post she still emphasized,

“That is my son. Quite the charmer. If only I could tell you half of what they say! But all these are are to me sacred moments…really can’t share much more.”

Not to be daunted though, Anne promised to talk about other aspects of her life.

There was drama at Kapkatet sub-county hospital in Kericho on Tuesday night when a 32-year-old man who had been presumed dead and taken to the mortuary regained consciousness close to three hours later.

Mortuary attendants were getting ready to embalm Peter Kigen’s body when they noticed some movements.

Kigen, a resident of Kibwastuiyo village in Bureti Constituency, is said to have collapsed while at home before his family took him to hospital.

His younger brother, Kevin Kipkurui, said he was present when Kigen collapsed. With the help of their cousin, they took Kigen to the hospital at 5.30 pm.

“When we arrived at the casualty department, we met a doctor who asked us to register the details of the patient at the reception while he attended to him,” Kipkurui, who was still in shock, told The Standard.

After registering the patient, Kipkurui said he was again asked to the National Hospital Insurance Fund desk for further documentation of his brother.

Kigen reportedly suffers from a chronic illness.

“When I went back to the casualty department at around 7.45 pm, I learnt my brother was dead. A nurse told me that he died long before we arrived at the hospital,” Kipkurui said.

He added: “The nurse later handed me a document to take to the mortuary attendant before my brother’s body was moved to the morgue.”

However, at 10.30 pm, Kipkuriu said, as they were waiting for embalming of Kigen’s body, they were informed that in fact, he was not dead.

Mortuary attendants who mummified the body told them that Kigen had regained consciousness.

“The mortician called me into the morgue and we saw him make movements. We were shocked. We could not understand how they could move a person who is still alive into the mortuary,” Kipkurui said.

Kigen, who spoke from his hospital bed yesterday, said he was shocked to learn that he was thought to have died and even taken to the mortuary.

“I cannot believe what just happened. How did they establish that I was dead?” he said.

Kirui, who donned his light-blue hospital uniform, was nevertheless happy to be alive and vowed to dedicate his life to evangelism once he’s discharged from hospital.

“I did not even know where I was when I regained consciousness, but I thank God for sparing my life. I will serve him for the rest of my life,” he said.

The hospital’s medical superintendent Gilbert Cheruiyot said Kigen was in critical condition when he was brought in.

Dr Cheruiyot said: “His relatives presumed he was dead and did not even wait for certification of death. They moved him to the mortuary, on their own.”

He said the clinical officers at the casualty were busy attending to other critically ill patients when Kigen was brought in, including an epileptic and a diabetic patient.

“They asked Kigen’s relatives to give them some time but they accused the clinicians of taking too much time and decided to take him to the mortuary. It was while the mortician was getting ready to embalm his body that she noticed some signs of life,” said Cheruiyot. He said the mortician informed the team at the casualty department which took Kigen back and begun resuscitating him. The process took three hours before the patient was stabilised.

“The patient was later taken to the ward and is responding well to treatment. We hope to discharge him in a few days,” Dr Cheruiyot said yesterday.

He added: “I advise those bringing their loved ones to the hospital to follow the laid down regulations. Before a body is moved the mortuary, it has to be certified by a clinician. In Kigen’s case, we can only say he was lucky, especially because of our qualified mortician who checked him before making any move,” said Cheruiyot.

Ciru Njuguna is 28 and her husband Greg Twiss is 60. Please don’t let that age gap fool you, these two deeply love each other and they are living their best life together.

But when people say Ciru is just after Greg’s money and he will end up in a septic tank, that gets to her. She is not ashamed of her relationship and strongly urges the public to let other people be.

“My German husband is older than my father. People say I am his slave and he is a colonial master,” she says.
