Amara noticed that his breath wasn’t normal and so advised him to go for a check up and she also discovered that the sound of his heartbeat seemed abnormal. He obliged and the outcome of the check up helped him to live again.

In Amara’s words:
“His heartbeat sounded much louder than normal. I was listening to his chest and it sounded odd.”

Kanu said:
“She was saying I should go for a check-up so I took her advice.”
Following Amara’s advice, there was a detection of a heart valve defect and eventually his life-saving open-heart surgery back in 1996.

Amara said:
It was the same faulty valve. It was like a ticking time bomb. It’s just one of those things we were lucky to find out.”

During the process of Kanu’s recovery after the surgery, Amara also helped nursed her beloved husband back to life.

In his conclusion, Kanu said: “Now I know that being fit and strong doesn’t make your heart 100%.”

It will be recalled that Kanu and Amara celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary recently.
