Award-winning Nollywood actress, Mosun Filani, who was one of the lead actresses in the movie, ‘Jenifa,’ is celebrating currently.
Why? Her three-year-old son, whose birthday is today, May 23, is not only alive but a living proof of God’s faithfulness.
According to the beautiful actress who is based in Osogbo, Osun State and married to astute politician, Kayode Oduoye, her son escaped death while he was a three-month-old baby.
Narrating the ordeal the family went through then, she writes on Instagram:
“Permit me to flood my page with my son’s pics today bcos he is my testimony. At exactly 3 months, we both fell off the stairs, and we landed separately downstairs. As we landed I knew I heard a crack from his head, I couldn’t pick him up, was so scared, just stood there shouting Jesus! My hubby rushed in and he picked him up, we gave him paracetamol and proceeded to the hospital. When we got there, the lady doctor we met first couldn’t even take him from me bcos by then his eyes had swollen seriously, we were immediately referred to Eye Foundation, (clinic) Ikeja, Lagos. When we got there they took him to the theatre, sedated him so they could check his eyeballs first, when it was realised nothing was wrong with his eyeballs, we were asked to go and do CT SCAN, MRI etc. When the result came back, there was so much damage going on in his head, his eye orbit was broken, there was a fracture on his forehead, there was blood just outside his brain, the nerves holding his eye socket was damaged.
“So much medical terms that would scare you to death, we were told if his eyes didn’t open in the next seven days, his brain would shut down, and that after the operation, he might look disfigured a bit on the face. So we were referred to a neuro surgeon. When I got there, as I was about entering her office, the word came from the THRONE OF GRACE FROM THE GREAT PHYSICIAN, THE SURGEON OF ALL SURGEONS (GOD ALMIGHTY), HE said, “Take him home, I will operate on him myself.”
With faith, I went back home without even seeing the surgeon, without going back to the hospital or Eye Foundation, and before the 7days ultimatum given to us for him to open his eyes, the eyes were healed and u could barely see anything on his face except you took a closer look. All I gave him was just antibiotics. Indeed GOD IS GOOD.” (sic)
Congrats to the Oduoyes.
