Eric Quizon gave an interview for DZMM 5:37 PM

Eric Quizon said, his Dad's condition is getting better BUT he is not out of critical stage.

"From last night up to now, his vitals are okay so talagang nakakatulong 'yon. Like the other day, bago siya na-dialysis, nagkaroon siya ng tubig sa lungs. [For] People with COPD hindi maganda ['yun] kasi parang nalulunod ang pasyente. With dialysis, natatanggal ang excess tubig ng katawan,"

"According to our doctor, last night sa blood result niya 'yung normal parang nasa 10 eh siya nasa 9.2 na, lumalapit na siya. Good sign also na 'yung bleeding sa loob ay nako-control siya. So hinihintay namin 'yung blood results. So 'yung dialysis ay nakakatulong talaga,"

"Kahapon natuwa kami but then again, of course, he's still not out of critical stage. That's why I said kahapon in that short brief moment na we had with him na dumilat siya we are all ecstatic, but then again nagsink-in yung gamot so tulog na naman siya ulit. This time wala yung spasm, but this is premature.

"Pero of course sa pamilya namin, 'yung makakita lang kami ng ganitong hope ay nakakahinga kami nang maluwag. Pero through the last five years ay nagkakaroon kami ng ganoong scare then biglang okay siya. It's been really a roller coaster ride to the family, biglang taas at biglang baba so ganoon lang siguro talaga,"
It really true that a lot of people and celebrities loves the King of Comedy, Dolphy. All are praying for his well being and I believe in the power of prayers that is why Dolphy is getting better.

For whatever happens to Mr. Quizon, I know it's God's will.

"He remains prone to internal bleeding"
"He has pneumonia again. They're now administering antibiotics again."
"At least na-detect ng maaga (yung pneumonia) so hopefully he survives this. This is the 11th pneumonia in 11 months."
"He's responsive. Not as responsive as yesterday but kanina si Zsa Zsa was there & sinabihan niya ng 'love you' & nag-respond sya"
 "It's like a rollercoaster ride. Kung ano yung pinagdadaanan ng daddy ko, yun din ang pinagdadaanan namin."
 "His Dad's blood pressure has been regulated. Heart rate okay but fluctuating."

When asked about 'National Artist Award' to be given to Dolphy...Eric answered: "Right now I want my dad's health to improve. Saka na natin pag-usapan yung National Artist."

keep on praying Cute-rs,
-shaw
