Marjorie Barretto reveals recent hospitalization: ‘Definitely a wake up call’
Marjorie Barretto reflected on how “health is truly wealth” as she revealed she has been confined in a hospital due to an undisclosed condition.
Marjorie spoke about her hospitalization while showing photos of herself lying in a hospital bed, through her Instagram page on Thursday, Aug. 31.
Aside from Marjorie’s kids Dani, Julia, Claudia and Leon, actor Gerald Anderson (Julia’s boyfriend) as well as Dani’s husband, Xavi Panlilio, also rushed to the hospital to look after Marjorie.
“Just as I thought August was about to end quietly, I had to spend the last week of the month in fear and found myself asking myself so many why’s,” Marjorie said in the caption.
“Health is truly wealth. Nothing else matters more than that,” she continued. “Feeling bad I terrified my kids for a while. Moms really don’t have the right to get sick. Single moms have to stay in their best form ALWAYS.”
Marjorie further said she was advised by her doctor to have a healthier lifestyle and to dump “lots of stress,” but she assured fans that she is now feeling better.
“I’m good now, much better, not 100% yet but definitely a wake up call for all of us in the family… I need to surrender to God’s will and lots of prayers that this doesn’t happen to me again,” she stated.
“Just thought of sharing [because] you know how there are so many parts of our lives we don’t get to share on Instagram,” she added. “It’s not fun all the time, we have our bad days, and in those kind of days I am reminded that I am blessed to have [five] strong and wonderful children and a great son-in-law Xavi and even Gerald who all rushed to hospital late at night, [because] Julia was so far away and she needed to be assured I was okay till she got back.”
