Zaijian wishes Dolphy well-A A +A
Friday, June 22, 2012
CHILD star Zaijian Jaranilla said he is praying for Comedy King Dolphy’s health to improve.
"Sana gumaling siya sa kanyang malubhang sakit. Sana pagkatapos niyang gumaling doon, eh, sumaya siya (I wish that his health will improve. And when it does, I hope he'd be happy)," he said during the press conference of "Lorenzo's Time" Thursday evening.
Dolphy (Rodolfo Vera Quizon Sr. in real life) was rushed at the Makati Medical Center last June 9 due to pneumonia. He was diagnosed five years ago of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which, according to his son Eric Quizon, is a progressive disease, like cancer.
Zaijian said he felt bad of reports on the comedian’s condition, adding the latter was very funny and happy to be with on the set.
The two were able to work together in "May Bukas Pa."
"Lagi kaming masaya. Palagi siyang nakakatawa. Naawa ako kasi nung 'May Bukas Pa,' eh, malakas pa siya nun, tapos ngayon mahina na siya (We were always happy. He’s funny. I pity him because he was still well during 'May Bukas Pa')," he said.
Meanwhile, seasoned actress Amy Austria is also saddened with the deteriorating health of the Comedy King.
Although they never worked together in movies, Amy was able to share the small screen with the comedian during "John en Marsha" days.
"Mabait at daddy talaga siya. Masaya siyang kasama at laging magaan sa set (He is really kind and fatherly. He is fun to be with on the set)," she said.
On Thursday afternoon, Dolphy underwent dialysis to support his kidneys.
“The reason why the option of dialysis was offered to us and the reason why we opted for dialysis is because overnight his vitals became stable. That was the longest time that his vitals were stable. But like I said, his condition still fluctuates,” Eric said.
But Eric said their family was glad after they caught the Comedy King opening his eyes Thursday.
"Natuwa ang mga kapatid ko kasi alam namin na nadidinig niya kami (My siblings were really happy when the saw my dad opened his eyes because we knew he heard us)… and somehow really trying to communicate," he said.
