”Saturday evening November 14, 2015, reminds me of wat it means “2fight for one’s life’. As I boarded a 20mins bike 4rm my school (UI) 2d University college hospital (UCH, Ibadan) for a quick visit. I had no idea dat ws goin to be my home for a while as within 5mins of leavin d school gate all I rememba is a car running in2 my bike 4rm the side…

 

 

Me dragging my almst lifeless body away 4rm d busy road tasting blood in my mouth, pain all over my body. Voices of concerned passers-by helping me up as dey asked…’who should we call?’. Jesus help me’ is all I could mutter as I ws tryin hard to hold onto my life while hearing ‘Rebecca please don’t sleep, just kip looking at dis light’ ( Nokia torch light)

Drips, injections, doctors, questions. Darkness…I couldn’t see a thing anymore…den I couldn’t make gud sentences. ‘We have to run a CT scan and X-rays, 2check her brain and her spinal cord’…dats d last thing I heard.

 

Neuro ward’…dat’s wia I spent d folown days. “D nurses would clean Ur wounds daily but U are not 2 move…or turn your head, U will have to eat, urinate, poo, bathe on this bed. We need 2b sure Ur spinal cord was not affected.’ D doctor sed.

 

Night was d time everything about life made me sad. I was a final year student, my project was still there, and I had exams in 2weeks. I cried evry night. Was I going to have an extra year? I kept asking God so many questions. I depended on d nurses 4 everytn…..everytn! I left d hospital n den faced reality.

 

My project, exams. I studied hard, it ws difficult because I had 2wear d neck collar since I insisted on goin back 2school, I dd not want bed rest.

 

So everything I dd, was wit my neck collar, eat, drink, bathe, read. I could not bend, lift heavy things, or sleep on a bed…I would cry every tym because I ws in pain but I had 2b strong.

 

I read in neck collar, wrote my exams, defended my project and graduated wit a 5.0 CGPA.

Wit d help of God, family, friends, lecturers, roommate, course mates n doctors….I pulled thru.

Oh!…I stil do not know d car or d man who hit me… Witnesses sed, he ran his tyres on us…dragged us as the bike got hooked 2d car and drove off on top
