Parokya Ni Edgar lead singer Chito Miranda revealed in an Instagram post last May 16 that his son with wife Neri Naig, Miggy, has been undergoing medical tests for a while now.
“Officially ok na si Miggy, at sobrang saya ko talaga kaya gusto ko na i-share! 👍🏼😊 ‘Di ko na ikukwento yung details, basta the bottom line is, Miggy is A-OK!” he wrote in his caption.
The singer revealed that their son was sick with UTI (urinary tract infection), but had him undergo several different medical procedures in order to be sure.
“All the tests show that it was nothing super serious. UTIs are relatively common and usually easy to treat, but should never be taken lightly, and we're so thankful that Miggy's pedia (and ninang) from TMC, along with the doctors from UST, Asian Hospital, and Cardinal Santos, did everything to make sure that there was absolutely nothing to worry about,” he wrote.
“Some might say na ang OA namin for having all these medical tests, pero sigurista talaga kami pagdating kay Miggy,” he added.
Chito also admitted that this health scare had he and Neri thinking about their priorities, pushing them to make preparations for the future.
“Nagbago talaga priorities namin. Kumpleto kami bigla sa insurance (iba't-ibang klase), na-inspire kami mag-ipon at mag-invest… Meron akong disaster preparedness kit at storage ng food and water in case may earthquake or bagyo, smoke alarms, fire extinguishers, security alarm systems, guns and knives for self-defense, etc...lahat kumpleto!” he shared.
Tama naman si Chito: “Mas mabuti nang sigurado.”
Aside from the health update, the singer admitted how stressed he felt these past few months with the hospital visits, tests, and worst of all, the waiting.
“Sobrang hirap, jusko! Super stressful, but being the dad, wala kang choice but to be strong, kasi you need to maintain a light and happy disposition for your family, kahit deep inside, nag-aalala ka. Todo dasal na lang talaga, at tiwala na everything will be fine. Sa wakas, makakahinga na kami ng maluwag!”
Chito and Neri married back in 2013. They had little Miggy in 2016.
