A mother-of-two, Takieyah Reaves, from Newark, New Jersey, presently lives with her intestines hanging out of her abdomen in the wake of enduring an awful dance club shooting.

 

 

 

Reaves, 32, cheated death in July 2017 to survive being shot twice on her stomach and right leg by an arbitrary killer who shot randomly at a crowd of night clubbers, harming three individuals.

One of the bullets tore her stomach fully open, and it was a supernatural occurrence that she survived after undergoing intensive surgery to repair her damaged intestines.

 

 

After specialists sewed her up, the size of the injury on her stomach made it difficult to close, constraining her to live with a gaping hole on her torso and her intestines completely opened.

Her scar looks so huge that a few people even mistake it for a pregnancy.

 

 

Takieyah was nursed by her mom Tammi Reaves-Duncan as she recuperated, she even went into depression because of her “deformation.”

 

 

Takieyah, a criminal equity understudy, said to Metro UK:

‘IT WILL GET PATCHED UP PROPERLY, BUT IT HAS BEEN LEFT OPEN AND EXPOSED EVER SINCE IT HAPPENED. IT BULGES AND I AM CONSTANTLY ASKED IF I AM PREGNANT WHEN I GO OUT. PEOPLE ASK ME IF IT’S A BOY OR A GIRL AND I THEN HAVE TO EXPLAIN EVERYTHING.’ TAKIEYAH LOST 4.5 LITERS OF BLOOD AND DEFIED DEATH TO SURVIVE THE SHOOTING.

Takieyah continued:

‘I WASN’T SUPPOSED TO MAKE IT OUT OF HOSPITAL ALIVE, MY FAMILY WERE TOLD TO SAY THEIR GOODBYES. I AM SO GRATEFUL TO STILL BE HERE AND BE GIVEN A SECOND CHANCE AT LIFE, BUT I CAN’T HELP FEELING DEPRESSED BY HOW I LOOKED.

I KEPT MY STOMACH HIDDEN FROM EVERYONE FOR A LONG TIME, EVEN FROM MY KIDS. I WAS SO DEPRESSED BY MY BODY, I HAD SCARS ALL OVER AND I HATED IT. ‘I JUST WANTED TO CURL UP IN A BALL AND HIDE AND I WAS SCARED TO GO OUTSIDE BECAUSE OF GUNS ON THE STREET.

I ALSO DIDN’T WANT ANYONE TO SEE MY BODY SO I FOUND IT HARD TO LIVE MY LIFE AS NORMAL.

DOCTORS CREATED A MAKESHIFT LINING FOR TAKIEYAH’S STOMACH BY USING SKIN FROM HER LEG.

IT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE BUT I AM SO GRATEFUL I AM STILL ABLE TO RAISE MY KIDS. I WAS DEPRESSED FOR A WHILE BUT I DECIDED THAT I COULDN’T GO ON LIKE THAT FOR THEIR SAKE. ‘I DO WANT MY BODY BACK BUT I SEE THEM AS MY WAR SCARS. PEOPLE TELL ME HOW BEAUTIFUL I AM AND I HAVE LEARNED TO EMBRACE WHAT HAPPENED.’ .’

Following three years of living with an open injury, Takieyah is expected to have her stomach sewed back together for good, toward the end of June this year.

 

 

Takieyah talking about the day she was shot: ‘I thought I was dying and I was so terrified about leaving my children without a mother. It was very startling and extremely difficult, it felt like fire was going through my veins.

 

 

‘I was simply in an unlucky spot, the person was firing gunshots and I stood in the entryway. I didn’t know I had been shot at first, but then I collapsed.

I was at the doorstep of the club when I got shot. I felt weak and tired, like I wanted to sleep. My friend Lavona continued instructing me to keep my eyes open and tune in to the voices.’

 

 

‘I lost 4.5 liters of blood and my doctors disclosed to me that my heart stopped on the surgical table, yet I returned. I had medical procedures to expel the bullets yet they needed to leave my stomach opened this way.
