It has been two years since music super producer Tedd Josiah lost his wife Reginah Katar who had just given birth to their baby weeks before her sudden death.
Katar died from internal bleeding, which was caused by a blood disorder in which there were too few platelets in her blood.
At the time, Katar was just three months into motherhood, with after-childbirth wounds yet to fully heal.
“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,” Tedd Josiah recounted in a past interview.
Years later, going by Instagram photos, Tedd Josiah and the now 3-year-old baby Jameela Wendo seem to be doing their best to move forward.
Below are delightful photos of baby Jameela and her father; Tedd Josiah,
