MANILA – Vice Ganda cried on Sunday as he talked about the current health condition of his ailing grandfather, who has been in the intensive care unit for days now.
During the live interview with “The Buzz” hosts Kris Aquino, Toni Gonzaga and Boy Abunda, Vice Ganda stated that his 93-year-old grandfather is not doing well.
“He is still not okay. Ganun pa rin, tulog. Hindi naman siya comatose pero sine-sedate kasi restless dahil ang dami ng nakasaksak na tubo sa kanya. Nakatali na nga siya, ‘yung kamay niya kasi ikot ng ikot tapos tinatanggal yung mga apparatus,” he said.
According to Vice Ganda, his grandfather was the one who looked after him when his mother had to leave for the United States.
Asked when was the last time that they got to talk, Vice Ganda said: “Pagkatapos niyang i-dialysis. Pinatawag niya kami lahat. Sabi nung doktor, ‘Hirap na ‘yung matanda. Sobrang sakit kasi ng dialysis. Hindi na nagre-respond. Nagfe-fail na dirediretso yung organs.’ Tapos nagdasal kami sa loob ng kwarto, kinausap ko na kasi nag-iiyakan na lahat sa kwarto.”
As much as he wants his grandfather to live longer, Vice Ganda said he also does not want to prolong the old man’s suffering.
