KALOKA! Hindi ko inaasahan na may pinagdaanang buwis buhay na parte ng kanyang buhay ang singer-performer na si Gary Valenciano over the weekend.
Sa official statement ng performer na ibinahagi sa media ng management company na Manila Genesis, nagpaliwanag sila na biglaan ang maselang operasyon na pinagdaanan ni Gary V.
Ayon sa pahayag ng singer ayon sa statement: “Two weeks ago, I celebrated my 35th anniversary in entertainment with a dance performance with my son, Gabriel, and a beloved team that’s second family to me.”
“To some, it may have looked like routine movements for my songs from yesteryears, but that performance is one I won’t ever forget. My life from that point would never be the same.”
“After that dance, I felt a sensation I’d never felt before – not even during the times I would push myself, riding my mountain bike on the trails for extended periods of time – I felt tightness and pain in my chest.”
“Upon consulting my doctor, he advised me to go through tests immediately. I want to share the results of my tests with you.” “Friends – the good news? I have a good, strong heart. The doctors are amazed. My heart and all its blood vessels, with the exception of one, are miraculously in excellent condition. Surprising after 39 years of Type 1 Diabetes. The tough news? The one exception – the main valve, my left anterior descending artery (LAD) is 95% blocked and now has very thin walls, because of diabetes,” pahayag pa ni Gary V. sa naturang official statement.
Pagpapatuloy pa niya na nakasaad sa pahayag ng Genesis: “I now lie here on a hospital bed because I need a bypass immediately. I apologize to my ASAP, Your Face Sounds Familiar, and Showtime families and fans, the companies and organizations I am scheduled to do shows for; the students from various universities I am so excited to meet … I was especially looking forward to “Unstoppable,” Darren Espanto’s concert. I need to excuse myself from all these commitments until I fully recover from the bypass surgery.”
Sa pinagdaan ng singer-performer ay humihingi ito ng dasal para sa kanyang fast recovery. “Do not worry please, only pray – I have an expert team of gifted doctors, some of them have taken great care of me for many, many years now. I will do my best to keep you updated as the days go by. Should I remain silent, it’s probably only because I will be recuperating, getting better, and building up my strength.”
Pagpapatuloy pa niya: “I know one day soon i will give my all on that stage again, perhaps in my spirit, even stronger than ever before. I believe this will be a story to tell people, and yes, it will be another one of God’s amazing faithful, merciful, gracious, and good ways. Let’s not worry, ok? Let’s just be prayerful,” panghuling pahayag niya sa laman ng official statement.
Noong May 5 isinagawa ang open heart surgery ng singer-performer at ayon sa misis ni Gary na si Angeli Pangilinan-Valenciano ay maayos naman ang isinagawang operasyon. Get well soon Gary Valenciano.
