"Parang feeling ko noong iwi-wheel-in ako doon [sa operating room], hindi na ako magigising. The very fact na kinailangan ng second surgery, matindi talaga iyong bleeding na nagaganap sa akin. And then nagising na lang ako. Ito iyong miraculous, nagma-Mass sila sa room ko noong nagising ako. My Mom was there and I saw all my relatives. And sa loob-loob ko talaga, siguro nga talaga namiligro ako kasi lahat sila nandito na," narrates Kris Aquino.


"After giving birth, everything that could go wrong health-wise, lahat ng puwedeng mag-shut down na mga organs, nangyari sa akin, kaya miracle na nabuhay ako and I'm alive," said Kris Aquino in a taped interview with The Buzz that aired yesterday, May 6.

The TV host-actress was confined at the Makati Medical Center for 10 days after giving birth to James Aquino-Yap on April 19. Delivering her second child—her firstborn with husband James Yap—caused internal bleeding and clotting in her lung. Kris had a second surgery to stop the bleeding.

Kris narrated, "Pumasok talaga sa utak ko noong Monday na iyon na made-dead na ako. First time in my life na nag-blood transfusion. So pag nakikita mo na dinadaluyan ka ng dugo, pumasok sa utak ko, ‘Oh no, si Josh! Sino ang mag-aalaga?' Sabi ko, 74 na si Mom. Paano na kaya iyon?'"

Josh is Kris's love child with actor Philip Salvador.

"And then, inisip ko na my baby will never know me," Kris continued. "I only cried kasi si Tita Cory Vidanes [ABS-CBN executive] called to check on me, tapos umiyak ako. Tapos noon, tumawag din ako sa Mom ko. Sabi ko, ‘Mom, ooperahan ako.' Umiyak ako doon, pero 'yon lang. Doon [lang] sa entire hospitalization na talagang umiyak ako nang umiyak dahil sabi ko, ‘This is it.' Parang feeling ko noong iwi-wheel-in ako doon [sa operating room], hindi na ako magigising."

She also said, "The very fact na kinailangan ng second surgery, matindi talaga iyong bleeding na nagaganap sa akin. And then nagising na lang ako. Ito iyong miraculous, nagma-Mass sila sa room ko noong nagising ako. My Mom was there and I saw all my relatives. And sa loob-loob ko talaga, siguro nga talaga namiligro ako kasi lahat sila nandito na."

To prevent further blood clots (or what doctors call pulmonary embolism), Kris had to wear graduated compression stockings.

"Compression stockings," according to the Mayo Clinic , "steadily squeeze your legs, helping your veins and leg muscles move blood more efficiently. They offer a safe, simple and inexpensive way to keep blood from stagnating after general surgery."

Kris commented on them, "Makapal siya na kino-compress ‘yong legs mo. Kasi ang embolism, or ‘yong pulmonary embolism, puwedeng magsimula sa legs... Ito, two months ko itong kailangang gamitin. Pero okay lang, tiis. Mainit, pero sige lang, nevermind."

Kris's bruises in her arms, where the needles were injected, are also healing.

"Kaya ‘yan naging ganyan ang kulay, kasi nung sinusubukan nila akong turukan, ‘tapos nagko-collapse yung mga veins. So wala, hindi nila nagamit ‘yong mga 'yan. Dito ‘yong mga nagamit... This is arterial blood gas exam kasi there came a point na parang iyong oxygenation level ko was falling below 70 percent sa katawan. Pati ‘yong lungs ko, hindi na nagpa-function. Kailangan nilang i-test iyan diyan... Matapang ako sa lahat ng needles, pero 'yan talaga nanginig talaga ako."

Meanwhile, Kris will be staying at their rented home in Ascot, formerly Oakwood, with her husband and two children until she fully recovers.
