My vision was deteriorating: Julie Gichuru reflects on surgery as she turns 48

Media personality Julie Gichuru took to social media on Friday to reminisce on the events of the previous year as she celebrated her 48th birthday.

The former news anchor described 2021 as a year of mixed fortunes, one that taught her a lot, in an Instagram post.

Julie said that her eyesight was rapidly deteriorating and that she needed to restore it as soon as possible after undergoing a medical treatment.

"What a year it's been – full of joys and tragedy." There is so much to be grateful for... "I had eye surgery and am healing well; my vision, which was rapidly failing, has substantially improved to the point where I no longer require glasses," she added.

Julie also disclosed that her husband had surgery around the same time and is recovering well, adding that they took advantage of the opportunity to care for one other and improve their relationship.

"By the grace of God, my darling Simba also had significant surgery and is doing well. We were able to care for one other as a result of this - what an honor it was to serve and assist each other in this way - to help heal, support, encourage, and strengthen each other.

“So very thankful,” she wrote.

Julie also highlighted her low moments in the past year and losing loved ones.

"And we've had such a huge deal of loss - dearly treasured loved ones have passed on before us." They're presently taking a break. And while they rest, we must continue to live, knowing that we will be reunited again."

She lamented the death of her nephew Immi, whom she described as a treasured gift, in December.
