Kris Aquino took to social media on Wednesday to update her followers on her current health situation.
Aquino began her lengthy Instagram post by thanking everyone who has been praying for her continued healing and fast recovery.
“Maraming salamat po because I know from my Ate & friends back home that many still continue to pray that I get better,” she stated
Aquino revealed that she wanted to give up several times, but her children and those praying for her kept her going.
“There have been times i wanted to give up-because of fatigue & being forever bedridden; the bruises all over my body that suddenly appear; my inability(since February) to tolerate solid food; headaches; bone deep pain in my spine, knees, joints in my fingers; and my constant flares esp. in my face that just keep getting worse.”
“BUT i remind myself Kuya & Bimb still need me & mahiya naman ako sa lahat ng mga patuloy na nagdarasal para gumanda ang kalusugan ko if i just give up,” she explained.
Moving forward, Aquino stated that she is grateful and blessed to be able to relocate to another state and undergo additional tests and consult with other experts.
“[I will] finally start my immunosuppressant therapy. I was warned that the safest form of chemotherapy (i don’t have cancer) that can be used for my autoimmune conditions will make me lose my hair. Hair will eventually grow back but permanently damaged organs won’t — so dedma muna sa vanity,” she clarified.
Aquino then stated her appreciation to everyone in Houston who helped her.
She also used the chance to explain that she already had three autoimmune conditions before fleeing the Philippines, and the fourth one developed while she was in the United States.
Unfortunately, Aquino stated that her physical manifestations point to a possible fifth. “Pinakyaw ko na, Opo,” she stated
