Get well soon, Lola Bats!

Just as we were arriving home from the media noche at Lola Estay's, people in Lola Bats' house in Paranaque were up and about, rushing to the Emergency Room.  

Lola Bats was rushed to the Medical Center Paranaque before dawn on January 1 by Tita Ising and Tito Sibing. It was fortunate that they were with her when she fell ill because Tita Ising is an MD. Lola's blood pressure shot up to 220/100 and had atrial fibrillation, according to Tita Ising. That means that her heart couldn't pump blood properly because it has an abnormal rhythm. As of yesterday afternoon, Tita Ising said that her blood pressure had gone lower while in the hospital. Lola Bats, perhaps feeling much better, was already raring to go back home.

Despite being critically ill at 94 years old, Lola Bats' comic timing was present when Tita Tessie and Ate Maddie visited her in the intensive care unit. That's a good sign.

Get well soon, Lola Bats!
