Eddie Gutierrez and Annabelle Rama consider their "second life" as the "best Christmas gift."


"Merry Christmas to everybody," was the cheerful greeting ofshowbiz couple Eddie Gutierrez and Annabelle Rama to the few press people whowere invited to their family's Thanksgiving mass held yesterday, December 1, atthe Social Hall of Sanctuario de San Antonio.

Both recently survived a health crisis—Eddie had anangioplasty last November 5 at St. Luke's Medical Center and Annabelleunderwent hysterectomy last November 15 at Asian Hospital.

The matriarch of the Gutierrezes announced:"Talaga namang napakasuwerte naming dalawa. Di ko akalain na magsabay-sabaypala kami. At sabay-sabay din kaming gumaling ngayong wala na akong dinadala satiyan ko. For ten years kong dinadala yun, ngayon nakakahinga ako nang maluwag,na wala na akong problema sa buhay ko, healthy na ako."

Annabelle may be one feisty lady, but the mere thought ofgoing under the knife sent chills down her spine. She admitted, "Takot ako saano 'Day, eh, sa operation. Takot ako hindi na magising, takot ako sa anesthesia,takot ako sa lahat..."

But she changed her mind when the doctor mentioned the Big C. The mother of six related, "Nung sinasabi sa akin na'cancer', nawala lahat ng takot ko. Nagpa-opera agad ako, at maraming, maramingsalamat sa Diyos. At least naman, ang result naman ng biopsy is [negative], kayamaraming salamat. Kaya healthy'ng healthy na ako!"

According to her, the doctors removed her myoma, whichwas equivalent to the size of two fists, uterus, fallopian tube, and ovary.

DO'S AND DON'TS. Twovisible changes in Annabelle are her weight loss and the way she walks.

She said, "One week ako hindikumakain sa hospital dahil kasi operation ko. Bawal kumain ng matigas,kailangan puro lang soft diet, kaya pumayat talaga ako."

That night, the buffet table served lechon Cebu, butAnnabelle could only look at her favorite food longingly. "Takam na takam nga ako salechon na iyan. Hay...!"

Good thing, she and Eddie were allowed to travel.

Today, thewhole family, except Ruffa, will fly to the U.S. to watch the dream match of MannyPacquiao and Oscar dela Joya at MGM Garden Resort Hotel in Las Vegas onDecember 6.

Another downside of her operation has to do with her sex life. She said teasingly, "Yungisang bagay lang yung hindi ako pinayagan, yung mag-aano kaming dalawa sa gabi,bawal yun...Magtitiis muna kami ni Eduardo. Magtitiis muna kaming dalawa,holding-holding hands muna kami."

The wife of Eddie added, "one month lang naman," which sentthe press laughing.

What about "pagtataray?"

Annabelle quickly answered, "Hindi naman puwedeng hindimagtaray dahil siyempre, kung magtataray nasa lugar. ‘Pag involved na talagaang family ko, hindi puwedeng hindi ako magtaray. Hindi puwede talaga.

SECOND LIFE. Forhis part, Eddie feels blessed, too.

"Ako naman," he said. "[Malaking] ginhawa sa buong pamilya.Talaga, sabi nga nila, kung hindi naagapan yung ginawa sa akin, baka ngayon, eh,pack-up na ko."

The patriarch of the Gutierrezes was brimming with gratitude."I feel good. Masaya ako ngayon, at para ring masarap ang hangin, maganda lahat...I'mmore in love with Annabelle, family, second life."

Annabelle could not help but chuckle about the last part ofEddie's remark. She added, "Kaming dalawa talaga, alam ko naman...Pag suwerte nagbigaysa inyo, tuluy-tuloy yun, kaya, I don't think maghiwalay pa kami ng asawa ko..."

The Holy Mass and gathering also served as a celebration for thevictory of Ruffa and Raymond Gutierrez at the 22nd PMPC Star Awards.The unica hija of Eddie and Annabelle won the Best Female Talk Show Host for The Buzz, while Raymond was recognizedas the Best Lifestyle Show Host for Livingit Up.

Annabelle exclaimed, "Kaya nga ang aking pagpasalamat saitaas, hindi talaga mahintu-hinto. Kaya maraming-maraming salamat, pasalamatako sa lahat ng supporters ng Gutierrez family. Hanggang ngayon, nandiyan parin sila, mga supporters namin ni Eddie, ni Richard...Maski na maraming naiinggitsa mga anak ko, wala na kong pakialam sa kanila, good luck na lang sa inyo. Kayakung may bago na namang intriga ngayon, ayoko nang magsalita."
