“Discharged. Special thanks to the medical team who took care of me - my cardiologist, Dr. Nick Cruz; my nephrologist, Dr. Bryan Cabral; my endocrinologist, Dra. Monica Cabral; and surgeon Dr. Joaquin Amante. Thank you!” 

“Sa family, friends, and loved ones who prayed for me, salamat sa prayers. Legendary family, mahal ko kayo! Greggy flores, salamat ulit sa kidney mo,” he continued. “To my wife Val and kids Joaqy and Julien, kayo ang lakas ko. Love you guys. And of course to my savior Jesus Christ. Thank you for guiding the doctors. And thank you in advance for the complete healing. The best ka Lord! Salamat sa pagmamahal mo! Now it’s time for isolation. Kitakits lahat tayo soon. Love you all!”
