Kris Aquino shut down rumors that she is dying and staying in the intensive care unit, but revealed that her illness is now “life-threatening.”

Aquino gave an update on her health by showing a compilation of videos and photos from her recent medical treatments, as seen on her Instagram page today, May 16.

“‘Yung chismis na na-confine ako, na nasa ICU, na nag-aagaw buhay ako — masyado kayong advanced,” she said. “Para klaro ang lahat at dahil gusto niyong patayin na ako, well, I’m not yet dead. I’m going to fight to stay alive.”

(Those rumors that I was confined, that I was in the ICU, and that I’m dying — you are all too advanced. To clarify everything and because you want me dead, well, I’m not yet dead. I’m going to fight to stay alive.)

“Mula end of April, we found out life threatening na yung illness ko,” she stated. “I’ve always been proud of my honesty [and] courage. Ginusto ko na maka lipad sana ng tahimik pero utang ko po sa mga nag darasal na gumanda ang aking kalusugan ang mag THANK YOU [and] to tell the TRUTH.”

(Since the end of April, we found out that my illness is already life threatening. I’ve always been proud of my honesty and courage. I wanted to leave quietly but I still owe it to those who are praying for my health to thank them and tell them the truth.)

The Queen of All Media disclosed that she has now three confirmed autoimmune conditions which are chronic spontaneous urticaria, autoimmune thyroiditis and vasculitis. According to Aquino, her veins are “collapsing and useless” due to vasculitis.

“They are all worried about organ damage in my heart [and] in my lungs. Kaya lahat ng paraan sinubukan [That is why they tried all possible ways] for me to get to Houston soonest,” she added.

Aquino also showed the stitches she has on her arm which “hurt like crazy,” but stressed that she is not complaining and that she is happy she is still alive. She then asked the public to keep their hurtful comments to themselves, not for her sake but for her children, Josh and Bimby.

“Hindi niyo po ako kailangan gustuhin para magpakatao… Please don’t punish kuya [and] Bimb for being my sons,” she added. “Hindi po masama ang maglakas ng loob at magsabi ng sobrang bigat na katotohanan.”

(You do not need to like me to be considerate. Please don’t punish [Josh and Bimby] for being my sons. It is not wrong to have the courage and say the hurtful truth.)

Aquino stated that they will be leaving in three days, May 19, adding that it will be taking “at least about two years” before they get to know if her treatments will be effective on her.

Aquino’s former “Kris TV” sidekick Darla Sauler was also seen with her while she gets her treatment. Other celebrities who extended their well-wishes and prayers to Aquino were Derek Ramsay, broadcasters Karen Davila and Bernadette Sembrano, and fashion designer Francis Libiran. JB
