” My 5 years old daughter suddenly developed an eye condition known as Strabismus (crossed eye or half past four eye). Strabismus is an eye condition whereby the two eyes do not look in the same direction. She was not born with such condition, it developed about 2 years ago.

One of the major causes of this condition is severe head trauma or head injury, maybe one of the days she hit her head somewhere, this is the story for another day.

When I first discovered the first deviation, I just saw it as a flash and it disappeared immediately. Until 4 months later when I discovered it again. It continued on and off until it became very visible.

We went to different private hospitals here in Owerri after which each of them gave her some medications, eye drops and asked us to observe it. As time went on, it became more visible and we continued to visit more eye hospitals on recommendations, including FMC Owerri and other private hospitals where she was also given eye drops and eye patch to cover one each of her eyes alternatively.

We continued this eye training for the next 6 months and it wasn’t getting better. By then, people have started asking questions about her eye, her classmates has started making mockery of her eyes, I was getting more frustrated and confused as what next to do.

I kept asking questions until I got to know about the almighty St Joseph eye hospital mgbirichi in imo state. We made arrangements and booked a date. When we went there, it was actually a very big hospital. After we waited patiently all day, it got to our turn and we met with the consultant ;a lady.

After examining my daughter’s eyes, she told us that nothing can be done about it as it was already late to correct. That the only thing she can do is to recommend glasses for her so that the deviation cannot go beyond this and hence affect her vision. Oh God! My daughter to grow up with this condition? Nah!

Thank God for the power of internet, I had already scoured the internet immediately I discovered her condition, gathering all the information I could on this. So when the consultant at mgbirichi told me that nothing could be done about it, I begged to differ. I told her that from my research that I learnt it could be corrected by surgery.

That was when she now agreed with me that there is a possibility through surgery and now referred me to University of Portharcourt teaching hospital (UPTH) to go and meet with the Pediatric Opthalmologist. From mgbirichi we drove straight to UPTH but unfortunately as we got there, it wasn’t the day mapped out for children. We had to go and come back on Monday because children consultations is only on Mondays.

Owing to the fact that Imo state is on lock down every Mondays just like every state in the east, as such no commercial transport service ply on the road on Mondays but we took the risk to travel from Owerri to PH amidst the lonely roads. That is one of the few risks we had to take for the sake of our child.

On that Monday, after the usual tussle that involves visiting a government hospital, going to and from till we completed the registration process, we waited for our turn until we met with the Chief Consultant Professor (Mrs) Adedayo Adio. Chai! May God bless this woman for me.

Immediately she examined my daughter, she assured us that it can be corrected through surgery. I was happy but then came the second stage of my anxiety. The thought of “surgery” kept making my heart jump at intervals. I have never had surgery of any kind in my entire life.

Being a government hospital, we had to wait for our booking for surgery to get a date in 4 months time as some of the equipment needed to carry out the surgery at UPTH is not working and needs a replacement which has been applied for by the management board and yet to get a positive response (this is the usual practice in every government institution in Nigeria).

Well, even if all their equipment was working, I wouldn’t risk going to the government hospital for the surgery based on my experience with government hospitals in Nigeria. So through one of the staff there, I got to know about her private eye clinic and believe me, that was the best decision I took.

In summary, we spent roughly 1.6 million naira for the surgery and the surgery was successful. It’s been three months now and my daughter has her eyes in perfect condition.

Being a parent comes with so much responsibility. Sometimes you have to take critical decisions that is very risky but you have no other option than to go for it because it is all for the best. That’s the situation I found myself, but I am very happy I made that risky but good choice.”

This is my 1year in marriage. I just gave birth last week Wednesday. My mother in-law came yesterday for omugwo. I asked my husband that I thought my mother is the person who is suppose to come for omugwo. My husband said his mom refused.

So when we were arguing about it. My mother in-law came into our room and state it outright to my face that my mom won’t come for any omugwo in this house. That her son won’t train me in University and my mum will still come and enjoy omugwo goodies. that where is my consience. Is the one her son did for me from my level 1 til NYSC isn’t enough. Still start up a business for me.

I appreciate the fact that my husband did all this for me which I didn’t take any for granted. I have never for one day disrespected mama or neither do we use to treat her bad. This is just my one year in marriage. How can I tell my mom she won’t be coming for omugwo of all my children. My husband loves his mother so much. He couldn’t even utter a word. Though he is not a talking type. Honestly this is shameful to me.

How will my parents feel. I’m the only girl and my mother has been waiting for this for long. My mother already entered market and bought things she will be coming for omugwo with.
