News anchor Betty Kyallo has finally come out to respond to the negative comments and statements she has been receiving after posting her daughter’s story on her Instagram page.
In her post, the mother of one went on to narrate how her daughter suffered from a condition known as ADEM (acute disseminated encephalomyelitis) which affected baby Ivanna’s brain and spinal cord.
The media personality went on to add that her daughter was later admitted to the ICU but through it all she (Ivanna) walked out alive and continues to get better. Betty wrote;
As another year once again comes to an end I can’t help but reflect and look back as this year has been a special one; difficult and extremely challenging to me and my family. It took a lot of convincing for me to share what I am about to share due to its sensitivity and privacy in nature, however I feel I won’t have done my duty to thank God for not abandoning us If I decide to be silent about it. If at the end of this message I will give heart to someone going through the same challenge, anxiety, fear and Loneliness I’ll sleep better. Early this year my sweet lovely daughter Ivanna was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease. It was marked by a sudden widespread attack of inflammation in the Brain and spinal cord called ADEM (acute disseminated encephalomyelitis)
Basically this disease damages the protective coating of the nerve fibers called myelin that act as conducters to all muscles for basic human functionality. What this means is that one day my beautiful four year old daughter stopped walking, soon stopped talking, soon stopped eating soon was so drowsy couldn’t keep her eyes open and thereafter went into a deep coma that she had to be taken to ICU and put on life suppport for a whole month. For the Larger part of her diagnosis doctors couldn’t even figure out what was wrong with her. We did numerous tests looking at every organ and blood but for a long time of hospitalization in Nairobi Hospital Children’s ward we couldn’t find it. All the while she kept deteriorating every day losing one function after another. Today she could talk the next day she couldn’t make a sentence. Etc. Thanks to God and the brilliant doctors that were so kind and gracious in their work and how they diligently treated my daughter especially Dr Ismail primary ICU pediatric carer for my daughter, the overall lead Neurologist carer Dr Oyatsi and ICU nurses, Ward doctors and nurses we finally found a name to what was eating her. ADEM. As a mother this was my lowest time, I was crushed every day seeing my daughter wasting away and Couldn’t do anything. Full post on my Verified Facebook Fan page BETTY KYALLO. SHE IS FULLY HEALED. AMEN! 😊
Keep your opinions to yourselves
Well as many know, Ken Mijungu who is best friends with Ivanna’s dad (Dennis Okari) came out to attack Betty Kyallo for not crediting her baby daddy who also happened to stand with them too.
Ken Mijungu’s post however rubbed the Kyallo’s family the wrong way forcing Betty’s sister to hit back with a long post where she told off the news anchor for meddling in her family’s affairs.
Anyway, looks like Betty Kyallo has also gone ahead to speak out her mind. In her latest post, the lady does not mention any names but judging from her post it’s easy to see that she was responding to the negative statements being shared by people on social media. She went on to write saying;
