Gary Valenciano sumailalim sa emergency open heart surgery

#Prayers please!

Matagumpay ang naging emergency open heart surgery sa veteran singer na si Gary Valenciano;  ito’y ayon sa kanyang misis na si Angeli Pangilinan.

Ayon sa ulat ng ABS CBN, sinabi ng Manila Genesis Entertainment and Management Inc, na nagsimulang makaramdam ng ‘sensation’ na hindi pa nararamdaman ni Valenciano matapos ang kanyang performance sa 35th anniversary nito sa showbiz kasama ang anak na si Gabriel.

Two weeks ago, I celebrated my 35th anniversary in entertainment with a dance performance with my son, Gabriel, and a beloved team that’s second family to me,” ani Valenciano.

To some, it may have looked like routine movements for my songs from yesteryears, but that performance is one I won’t ever forget. My life from that point would never be the same.

“After that dance, I felt a sensation I’d never felt before — not even during the times I would push myself, riding my mountain bike on the trails for extended periods of time — I felt tightness and pain in my chest,” ani Valenciano.

Ayon pa kay Valenciano, nadiskubre sa kanyang check-up na ang kanyang left anterior descending artery ay na-blocked dahil sa diabetes.

Friends – the good news? I have a good, strong heart. The doctors are amazed. My heart and all its blood vessels, with the exception of one, are miraculously in excellent condition. Surprising after 39 years of Type 1 diabetes. The tough news? The one exception – the main valve, my left anterior descending artery (LAD) is 95% blocked and now has very thin walls, because of diabetes,” ani Valenciano.

Humingi rin ng paumanhin ang singer sa mga kumpanya’t show na hindi niya mapupuntahan dahil sa surgery.

I now lie here on a hospital bed because I need a bypass immediately. I apologize to my ‘ASAP,’ ‘Your Face Sounds Familiar,’ and ‘Showtime’ families and fans, the companies and organizations i am scheduled to do shows for; the students from various universities I am so excited to meet… I was especially looking forward to ‘Unstoppable,’ Darren Espanto’s concert. I need to excuse myself from all these commitments until I fully recover from the bypass surgery,” ani Valenciano.

Pinili umano ni Valenciano na isapubliko ang kanyang kondisyon upang maiwasan ang anumang usap-usapan o ispekulasyon.

I thought it best to give you the details of my condition to prevent gossip and speculation that may be cause for worry and concern,” saad pa nito.

Umaasa naman si Valenciano na siya’y makababalik sa stage sa oras na  maka-recover.

I know one day soon I will give my all on that stage again, perhaps in my spirit, even stronger than ever before. I believe this will be a story to tell people, and yes, it will be another one of God’s amazing faithful, merciful, gracious, and good ways. Let’s not worry, ok? Let’s just be prayerful,” saad pa ni Valenciano.

Ang mga pahayag ng singer ay bago pa itakda ang kanyang operasyon.

Humiling naman ang panalangin ang misis ni Valenciano para sa agarang paggaling ng mister.
