MANILA, Philippines – As of 3:35 PM today, Boy2 Quizon was reported on ANC as sending a text message that his grandfather, Dolphy, is still on respirator but is responding well to treatment. As of press time, Dolphy is said to be in stable condition.
Dolphy was rushed to the Makati Medical Center last Saturday, June 9, due to complications from pneumonia. According to son Eric Quizon in a statement to the media yesterday, the pneumonia caused his father to become weak, since Dolphy already has underlying COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).
COPD is a condition that makes breathing difficult.
Dolphy received the Grand Collar of the Order of the Golden Heart from President Benigno Aquino III on November 2010 for his contributions to the entertainment industry and to charitable causes. The award is the highest conferred by the President of the Philippines to a private citizen.
