Kris Aquino deals with emotional toll of ongoing treatments: ‘Inuubos na ng Houston ang tapang ko’
Kris Aquino confessed that the medical treatments she has been undergoing in Texas are taking a toll on her, in a recent conversation she had with her friend, writer-editor Dindo Balares.
Balares gave an update about Aquino’s health after getting a lot of queries from people checking up on the Queen of All Media, as per a post on his Facebook page on Monday, Sept. 19.
“Tuloy ang pagpapagamot ni Kris. At tulad ng sinumang sumasailalim sa serye ng masusing medical examinations, may mga panahong mababa ang emosyon,” he said. “‘Inuubos na ng Houston ang tapang ko,’ sabi na rin niya nitong huling chat namin.”
(Kris has been in continuous medication and like anyone else who undergoes a series of thorough medical examinations, there have been days [when she] feels down. “Houston is draining my courage,” she said during our recent conversation.)
Balares has been consistently reaching out to Aquino through online messaging, although he admitted she often takes some time to respond. Despite this, Balares assured fans that Aquino is still “playful” whenever she talks to him.
Balares also revealed that a “top actor” sent him a message, offering Aquino his newly-acquired property in Beverly Hills for her and her children to stay in. The actor and his wife were said to have been wanting to reach out to Aquino but they do not have the connection to do so.
Balares forwarded the offer to Aquino but it was not immediately known if the actress accepted it. Balares then thanked fans for their prayers and well-wishes for Aquino.
Aquino has been diagnosed with four autoimmune diseases but she earlier revealed experiencing physical manifestations of a possible fifth illness. Aquino also stated she will be undergoing chemotherapy for her condition. JB
