“The discipline and determination of my husband have never ceased to amaze me,” she wrote in her caption. “Even after a super major open heart double bypass surgery, he has been doing his breathing and chest coughing exercises religiously because he is determined to use his second life and his new heart to accomplish his unfinished mission on this earth. Gary remains standing.”
She also posted a short video of him walking.
Angeli also revealed that her brother Senator Kiko Pangilinan and his wife Sharon Cuneta visited Gary at the hospital after his surgery.
“Someone made a surprise visit to the CCU and brought so much joy to my husband. He said, ‘Don’t make me laugh!’ as she relayed stories about their new show (‘Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids’),” Angeli wrote in her caption. “She said the most beautiful prayer for Gary and we were so blessed with her sweet and touching gesture. No one has really been allowed to see him due to infection risks, but I guess with this special sister, we decided to take an exception.”
Sharon posted the same photo on her own Instagram account, noting that she almost cried after seeing Gary so weakened.
“I visited my beloved Kuya Gary whom I’ve loved and adored since long before we became relatives,” the Megastar wrote in her caption. “I am happy to let you know that God really pulled him through this delicate heart issue with favor and grace. I texted Kiko afterwards saying na nakakaiyak because I am not used to seeing Gary so low-batt! But he’s just recovering, folks. He had that dang blockage in his heart and was still performing like THAT?! Just wait ‘til he’s performing AGAIN! I love you my Kuya Gary. Get well asap because we miss you! Please pray for his speedy and complete recovery.”
Gary assured all his fans and friends that he is well in a video posted yesterday on his Instagram account.
