Heartbreaking: Kenyan photographer shares touching images of his pregnant wife's final moments on earth

This will leave you in tears. A renowned Kenyan photographer, Joe Makeni shared heartbreaking moments in images leading up to his pregnant wife's death on Instagram.

Makeni said he shared the images so as to encourage people out there. According to him, his wife was unable to walk on January 20th and was taken to the hospital at Kijabe where she was admitted before she was later transferred to Nairobi.
 
Medical tests revealed that Njeri had hypocalcaemia, a health condition resulting from low serum calcium levels in the blood. Below are the photos with captions: 


Photo 1-January 20 at 4:4pm: "On this day @Njeriitho was unable to walk and so we went to the hospital to get it checked out. Actually she couldnt control any of her limbs"
 
Photo 2-January 27 5:55pm: "After 3 days in Kijabe we came back to a hospital in Narobi. She was sick but she was always so full of joy. Many of us always went home more encouraged by her."
 
Photo 3: Njeri in hospital just a day after the evaluation. We were so broken having lost the baby just two days prior but as always she was hiding behind a smile. PS: I did the make-up with instruction from @saitonne and @ngamau. Thank you so much Wangeci and Saitone for going out of your way."
 

Photo 4: "Making gang signs all the way...hypocalcemia for what?"
 
Photo 5: "Doctors and nurses makes a spirited attempt to save Njeri's life. There was no shortage of talent. I dont think I ve ever seen so much doctors attend to one person. This is the part where you pray before the procedure started."

Photo 5: February 10: "I stared at this monitor for like 30 mins hoping to see the blood pressure shoot up. It was at 49/20 for the longest time. That's the end of that story. Now to pick up the pieces and soldier on. Good bye Njeri. You 'll always be in my heart."

Ooh, so sorry. Such a happy couple. To think he stood till the end. Dnt take any pregnant woman for granted, u never know hidden illnesses. Some wicked nonsense men will be beating their pregnant wives anyhow. Yam for the wickedness u showed me during my pregnancy despit my love and kindness. God will judge u.

Yea,n hypocalcemia can occur during pregnancy,dats y, calcium carbonate is one of the routine drugs in pregnancy,buh it is hardly given in most hospitals,mayb cos of the side effect which is kidney stone n our people hardly drink enough water.
