Nigerian author, TV Producer and Digital Media Strategist Toyosi has shared her story on battling and conquering ovarian cyst as she announced that she and her actor husband, Daniel Etim-Effiong are expecting their 2nd baby.
Daniel Etim-Effiong and Toyosi had met in August 2016 while processing a project, gotten engaged in June 2017 and had their traditional and Church wedding ceremonies on the 2nd and 4th of November 2017 respectively. Their first bundle of joy, a baby girl arrived in 2019 and now, they are expecting the 2nd bundle of joy.
Toyosi Etim-Effiong is renowned for her amazing captions and she wouldn’t give a good news without a long testimony. Recalling how she had had her first emergency surgery ever in 2012, she revealed how she battled ruptured ovarian cyst in a series she titled “My Ovaries”. “GOD is good and kind to us ☺️ Baby 2 is enroute 🙏🏾 but what is good news without a long testimony?”, she began her gist. I’m still writing but it’s looking like a 4-5 part series just like how #NowYouKnowMeBetter started 😄 It’s still available on Amazon! Please buy a copy today 😊”, Mrs Etim-Effiong continued.
“But I digress. This new series is titled “My Ovaries” 😄 Enjoy!! —-Part I In 2012 I had a ruptured ovarian cyst and underwent my first emergency surgery ever. I was scared. I felt palpably, the spirit of fear around me, taunting, prodding and tormenting me and as I was wheeled through the corridors of the old but sturdy hospital in V/I, I kept asking the nurse if I was going to die. I’ll never forget the look of uncertainty on her face; she couldn’t look me in the eye and she wouldn’t give me a straight answer.”
“I concluded that being chatty would reduce my chances of dying so when the surgery started, I talked and talked and talked until the surgeon asked the anesthesian to put me to sleep. I had clearly overdone it but even as I was told to count backwards from 10, I did all I could to stay awake. Before the surgery, I had prayed against dreaming about hell, “LORD please I don’t want to dream about/visit/anything hell… PLEASE”.”
“Stories of people who had been taken to hell and sent back to share their experiences had floated through my mind and I was certain, extremely certain that I didn’t want to be one of those people. No hell for me please. Anything but hell, thank you. Ten, nine, eight, sen, si, f… deep sleep. My will to stay awake had succumbed to science. TBC”, Mrs Etim-Effiong concluded temporarily, promising to continue the gist at a later time.
