But after taking his meals on Friday evening, Michael complained of pain in the chest and just like that, he passed away, Michael's mother explained on Facebook.
"Michael had his surgery and it was very successful. He was talking, eating and making a beautiful recovery. We were happy...but that joy was earlier this evening, in less than 20 minutes just snatched away...
"Michael had finished eating and was being prepped for bed by the attendees. He complained of a pain in the chest and just like that, my baby was gone!"

Despite the unfortunate end, Michael's mother was still grateful to Ghanaians for their help in raising the money for her son's surgery.
