Chito Miranda reveals reason for hospital visits of son Miggy
Chito Miranda breathed a sigh of relief as he revealed the reason for his son Miggy’s hospital visits in the past few months.
Miranda narrated his family’s recent troubles in a lengthy Instagram post yesterday. The photo showed himself taking the picture while wife, Neri Naig, watched over baby Miggy who had undergone a CT scan at the time. He admitted to taking the photo weeks ago but couldn’t find any reason to share it. Now that his family is in the clear, the snapshot stood as a reminder of the hardship they have overcome.
“This is one of several pics that I took, for me to have something to remind myself with ng mga pinagdaanan namin (the things we went through) these past couple of months,” wrote Miranda.
He added, “At ngayon, officially ok na si Miggy, at sobrang saya ko talaga kaya gusto ko na ishare (And now, Miggy is officially okay and I’m just so happy so I want to share it)!”
The Parokya ni Edgar frontman said Miggy somehow developed a urinary tract infection. Fortunately, it didn’t turn out to be serious. Nonetheless, Miranda and Naig felt the pressure of being parents during the ordeal. Apart from Miggy’s pediatrician and godmother from The Medical City, Miranda sought the opinions of several doctors from the University of Santo Tomas Hospital, Asian Hospital and Cardinal Santos Hospital.
Miranda also revealed how parenthood totally changed his and Naig’s priorities. He wrote about getting insurance, preparing emergency supplies and even gearing up for self-defense should the need arise.
“Kumpleto kami bigla sa insurance (iba’t-ibang klase), na-inspire kami mag-ipon at mag-invest, kumuha kami ng Cordlife (stem cell banking) at ng PlumCare DNA Advisor (saliva testing to determine mutations sa genes through genetic screening),” he wrote.
(We suddenly have all kinds of insurance, we were inspired to save up and invest, we got Cordlife and PlumCare DNA Advisor.)
Miranda continued, “Meron akong disaster preparedness kit at storage ng food and water in case may earthquake or bagyo, smoke alarms, fire extinguishers, security alarm systems, guns and knives for self-defense, etc…lahat kumpleto! Meron pa nga akong buntot pagi eh hehe!”
(I have a disaster preparedness kit and food and water storage in case of an earthquake or storm, smoke alarms, fire extinguishers, security alarm systems, guns and knives for self-defense, etc… we have everything! I even have a stingray hehe!”)
For now, Miranda expressed contentment and joy that his family can get back to its normal life. /ra
