CORY AQUINO WATCH1 July 2009
Former President Cory Aquino is in critical condition at the Makati Medical Center. Her entire family, including daughter Kris Aquino is keeping a tight, round-the-clock watch over her as her battle against colon cancer takes a turn for the worse. A 9-day novena mass for her recovery was held at the Greenbelt chapel attended by close friends and supporters of Mrs. Aquino.
TV Patrol reports that Mrs. Aquino has not been taking food for the past week but said that Kris Aquino was able to make her eat ice cream and jello. Kris was absent from SNN last night and the reason is that she wants to give all her time to her mom.
Margie Juico, a close friend of the former president said that Cory wants to be with husband Ninoy but that she is doing all she can to stay for as long as possible with her children.
Korina Sanchez disclosed that Mrs. Aquino is at the top of their list of sponsors for their wedding. She related how happy Mrs. Aquino was when she and Senator Mar Roxas last talked with her saying that the former President was elated when the Senator told the nation during the first ANC Leadership Forum that she was the leader he admired the most.
We join the nation in praying for President Cory's speedy recovery.
