Amid rumors that she is in critical condition, showbiz personality Kris Aquino revealed that her illness is now considered ‘life threatening.’
Through an Instagram post shared on Monday, Aquino shared that she is scheduled to fly out within the week. She also shut down rumors that she has been confined in the ICU.
In a video, she said “Yung chismis na na-confine ako, na nasa ICU, na nag-aagaw buhay, masyado kayong advance. Para klaro ang lahat and dahil gusto niyong patayin na ako – well, I am not yet dead. I am going to fight to stay alive.”
Aquino also confirmed that she has 3 autoimmune conditions: chronic spontaneous urticaria, autoimmune thyroiditis, and Churg-Strauss Syndrome.
She also shared that her doctors are worried about possible organ damage in her heart and lungs. They hope to get her to the US as soon as possible because the medicine she needs is not FDA approved in the Philippines.
Aquino has been documenting her battle with her autoimmune conditions that resulted to her deteriorating health and drastic weight loss. To end the video, Aquino asked netizens to withhold hurtful comments directed towards her children.
