CORY AQUINO WATCH2 July 2009
Tonight at SNN, Kris Aquino read the Aquino family's statement of gratitude to the Filipino nation for the overwhelming expression of support and prayers for President Cory:
Our mother has been battling cancer for a year and a half.Her current hospitalization was necessary because of her loss of appetite, caused by fluid build-up in the stomach area.We remain in complete trust in God's infinite healing power.Our family wishes to thank the Filipino people for their prayers and outpouring of love and concern for our mother.She continues to be a woman of faith, a fighter, a source of hope and inspiration for all of us, not just her family but our entire nation as well.Just like she has always taught us by her example, we entrust everything to God.
President Cory Aquino has been moved out of ICU and is now in a regular private room at the Makati Medical Center. Her condition is described as "stable" and her mental faculties appear to be still razor-sharp if we are to judge from what Kris shared with the nation in SNN tonight after reading the Aquino family statement — President Cory even advised her not to drink too much coffee.
In this GMA News report, you will see Kris Aquino arriving at the Makati Med yesterday night, July 1 and you will see her withdrawing money from an RCBC ATM inside Makati Med.
This will provide the backdrop for the story wherein Cory asked Kris why she had to withdraw money; the answer Kris gave was that so she could buy coffee to keep her awake while watching over her mother and it was then that Cory advised her not to drink too much coffee. I'm uploading the video at youtube and will post it her as soon as the upload finishes.
