As per the American Heart Association, a pacemaker is a small battery-operated device which helps the heart beat in a regular rhythm. The surgery appeared to be successful as Quinto later shared a moment where she stood by the bedside of her Mama Bob. The image was accompanied by a message of praise, posted via Instagram Stories yesterday, July 21.
Quinto also posed for a photo with a certain Nanay Rosario and Ate Tina, together with Mama Bob.
“Sa pangalawang Nanay at Ate ko, maraming salamat Nanay Rosario at Ate Tina sa pagbisita po kay Mama Bob salamat po sainyo. Mahal na mahal ko po kayo,” the singer said.
(To my second mother and older sister, many thanks Nanay Rosario and Ate Tina for visiting Mama Bob, thank you. I love you so much.)
Mama Bob is the sister of Quinto’s biological father. Quinto only met her biological mother in 2012. JB
