When asked if E. Ostapenko had serious health problems before the disaster, the woman did not hide – there were many diseases, the artist also complained of heart disease.
“He had a lot of health problems. He was treated, taking medication prescribed by doctors on a daily basis. Eugene had at least 7 serious health problems, says Liubove, the mother of the deceased. – He was diagnosed with cancer, but had a successful operation 4 years ago, so the disease seemed to go away. But it was always observed. Also diabetes, persistent high blood pressure – many of those diseases. Diabetes also affects heart disease. “

Delphi reminds her that in the last moments of her life the singer spent time with her mother, who agreed last Wednesday to share memories of her son and talked about a fateful moment when, unfortunately, no medicine could to help. During the course of the conversation, the conversation partner struggled to shed tears – the woman admitted that losing her mother to her children is the most painful thing that can happen.
“For a long time everything was fine with his health, he did not get sick … Everything happened suddenly. Worked. I watched TV with me, sat next to an armchair, went to the kitchen for a while to pick up milk with honey, and then went to my room. But then he came back, saying, “I’m sick, call the ambulance.” And that’s it. The ambulance did not know to come when everything was ready, “said the singer’s mother excitedly.
The woman has no complaints about medication – two ambulances arrived at the scene surprisingly quickly.
“It just came to our notice then. The Express arrived very quickly, two brigades, but could not help anyone anymore. The medics tried to revive him for an hour, but it did not help,” she said.
The interviewee did not hide the fact that despite the fact that Eugene had not recently complained about his health, there were many in his medical history.
“It just came to our minds then. But somehow still unexpected. She was only 44 years old,” the woman said.
Mother and son had a very strong connection, and lately Eugene has been living with her, always ready to help.
“We were very close. All of Lithuania knew this. I accompanied him everywhere, I did not miss any concerts,” she said.
The woman believes the heart was the cause of death, but an autopsy will be performed for accuracy.
“She will have an autopsy on Thursday. Probably a heart. I do not know what it may be anymore. But want to know what happened. We lost it in five minutes,” Delfi opened.
Ms. Liubovė has been happy with her son lately as she prepares a new program for her fans, and plans to return to the stage with fresh repertoire.
“He recorded new songs. Two have already started writing, I have no doubt they would be hits. He never left the stage and prepared a new program. He thought, after the quarantine he would record them, officially release them, he already had music and lyrics, ‘said the interviewer.
