SADNESS!! TEDD JOSIAH OPENS UP ON THE RARE CONDITION THAT KILLED HIS WIFE
Celebrated Music producer, Tedd Josiah, is in mourning following the death of his beautiful wife and mother of his child, Reginah Katar, who passed away on 30th September 2017. The cause of her death,has been identified as Thrombocytopenia, a condition characterized by abnormally low levels of thrombocytes, also known as platelets, in the blood.
Tedd opened up on the sad ordeal during an interview with Edaily, where he revealed he learnt the cause of her demise after it was already too late. He said in part;
“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.
A new mother’s platelet count is supposed to be monitored regularly months after delivery. especially if she has issues with her platelet count. Hers was not checked. Sadly, we were made aware of her condition after she had passed on. Her death came as a shocker, given she only complained of a headache on Friday and early Saturday. When I rushed her to hospital Saturday. she passed away three hours later.”
May the family find comfort in this dark moment. RIP Reginah from OMG fraternity.
