Photographer Joe Makeni Shares Touching Images Of His Late Wife’s Last Moments

Photographer Joe Makeni shared photos of his late wife Njeri, who passed on a few days ago from Hypocalcaemia, a disease associated with the presence of low serum calcium levels in the blood..

In a touching series of photos, Makeni shares what seems to be a beautiful but rather tragic journey of his wife’s illness.

His late wife also lost a baby in the process of receiving treatment and had also lost control of her limbs at the time when she was being taken to hospital.

Here is the series of photos he shared via his instagram page.

Doctors and nurses make a spirited attempt to save Njeri’s life. There was no shortage of talent. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many doctors attend to one person. This was during intonation and I remember Dr. Rachel Hagler telling Joy and I “This is the part where you pray” before the procedure started. I am particularly thankful to Dr. Rachel for preparing me every step of the way. She told me about the grim possibility if death even before I thought of it myself. Thank you for making all those phone calls to make sure Njeri got a bed in the ICU. Thank you for your courage and faith. For being human. For fighting for her life to the very end. For letting me see her before she passed on. You encouraged me.

When is the right time to say ‘I love you’?

How soon is too soon? And do you really love someone after three months (Cheryl Cole)?

They’re the three most significant words in the English language. Deliver them at the right time to the right person and the first time they’re said out loud calls for champagne.

Blurt them out at the wrong time to the wrong person and you need a stiff drink for totally different reasons. It’s the ultimate embarrassment.
