Kris details Bimby's swimming accident

Kris Aquino's younger son Bimby Yap was hospitalized due to a swimming accident yesterday, January 23.

The Queen of All Media took to Instagram to share details of Bimby's injury, writing:

"Bimb was doing his swimming lessons. He was getting out of the pool, slipped and landed hard on his right elbow and pelvic area."

Bimby was rushed to the emergency room at The Medical City where he was promptly and "efficiently" treated. 

She continued, "I was scared because the first result showed apparent bone separation in his right elbow. Thank God their orthopedic team was thorough, they did a full x-ray of his left arm for comparison because they explained children still have bones that are growing and 'fusing' together. Results showed no fracture just soft tissue contusions."

 

We had an emergency. Bimb was doing his swimming lessons. He was getting out of the pool, slipped & landed hard on his right elbow & pelvic area. This is when i’m thankful our home is near Medical City. In 20 minutes we were in the ER, the very efficient staff got our info, and they did his X Rays. I was scared because the first result showed apparent bone separation in his right elbow. Thank God their orthopedic team was thorough, they did a full X Ray of his left arm for comparison because they explained children still have bones that are growing & “fusing” together. Results showed no fracture just soft tissue contusions. The area now is swelling. We need to Immobilize his arm for 3 days & Elevate it above the heart to help lessen swelling. This is from a mom to other parents- Bimb still drinks 2 glasses of milk a day. Big glass w/ Milo in the morning, and fresh milk before sleeping in a smaller glass mug. His bones withstood the impact of his bad fall because of his daily calcium intake. Thank You God that although my bunso is in pain, it’s not a worse situation. Home now. Good night from a mom who is now feeling the post accident stress. #motherhood ♥️♥️♥️ (P.S. my sons & i have full medical insurance both for here & abroad. It is a worthwhile expense because Bimb’s health card took care of all his ER expenses & we only spent for his prescription medicine. Pls consider health insurance for your family, it’s a good investment. I’m now looking at getting health insurance for all those under my employ to supplement PhilHealth. #learnings)

According to Kris, Bimby was discharged the same day and that while she's feeling some "post accident stress", she's thankful that her son isn't in "a worse situation".

Get well soon, Bimb!
