Chito Miranda and his wife, Neri Miranda, had the scare of their lives when their son Miggy got sick with urinary tract infection or UTI.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, May 16, Chito said they can now breathe a sigh of relief since their one-year-old son has fully recovered from his illness.
The band vocalist wrote, "Sa wakas, makakahinga na kami nang maluwag! Mapapa-'Thank You, Lord' ka nalang talaga, e.
"This was taken a few weeks ago...di ko lang pinost because it was something I wasn't really keen on sharing.
"This is one of several pics that I took, for me to have something to remind myself with ng mga pinagdaanan namin these past couple of months."
Chito was so stressed out, but he had to remain strong for his family.
"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. At ngayon, officially ok na si Miggy, at sobrang saya ko talaga kaya gusto ko na ishare!
"Di ko na ikukwento yung details, basta the bottom line is, Miggy is A-OK!"
The Parokya Ni Edgar lead vocalist further revealed that several tests were done to make sure he doesn't have another illness apart from UTI.
He said, "Fortunately, 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 [The Medical City], along with the doctors from UST [University of Santo Tomas Hospital], Asian Hospital, and Cardinal Santos [Medical Center], did everything to make sure that there was absolutely nothing to worry about."
Some people might think they overreacted, but it's better to be safe than sorry, especially when it comes to family.
"Some might say na ang OA namin for having all these medical tests, pero sigurista talaga kami pagdating kay Miggy.
"Nagbago talaga priorities namin.
"Kumpleto kami bigla sa insurance (iba't-ibang klase), na-inspire kami mag-ipon at mag-invest, kumuha kami ng Cordlife (stem cell banking) at ng PlumCare DNA Advisor (saliva testing to determine mutations sa genes through genetic screening)...
"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!
In the end, he quipped, "Meron pa nga akong buntot pagi eh hehe!"
"Wala lang...sa akin kasi mas mabuti nang sigurado.
"Ngayon, kampante ako na Miggy will be fine, at dahil dun, masaya ako. Thank God for that."
Buntot pagi or stingray tail is known in Pinoy folklore as a whiplike weapon to ward off aswangs and other similar mythical creatures.
