Former President Arroyo had shooting pain on the leg last night so she will go to vmmc muna for pt before heading for pampanga. The shooting pain in her leg is an offshoot of her lumbar sacral spine problem which vmmc doctors said in one of their first medical reports. She is in fact a candidate for another surgery but after three traumatic surgeries she isn’t physically and emotionally ready for another surgery that’s why they prescribed conservative treatment first in the form of intensive physical therapy.
She will proceed to vmmc fr tagaytay with a quick stop at libingan ng mga bayani to visit the grave of her parents.
She wants to proceed to pampanga from vmmc but this will depend on what the doctors will recommend later.
She wants to visit pampanga to try to make up for lost time as she was detained by almost 8months.
Former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will check out tomorrow from the health facility in tagaytay and she will go directly to her district in pampanga. pinayuhan siya ng mga doktor na mamaari syang pumunta sa distrito basta suot nya ang kanyang neck brace, huwag masyado gamitin ang kanyang voice box at ipagpatuloy kaagad ang kanyang physical therapy sessions. magpahinga. Hindi mapakali ang dating pangulo dahil iniisip nya na marami pa syang dapat gawin para sa kanyang mga kababayan. She says that it is her sworn duty as an elected lawmaker to make up for her absence while in detention. Ipinagpilitan po talaga nya na makadalaw na sa kanyang distrito bukas. Sobrang sipag kaya nga po sya nagkasakit ng ganyan. sabi pa nga po nya sa mga anak nya na pagbigyan na nila sya kasi ito ang buong buhay nya at hindi rin sya gagaling sa bahay kung malayo and kanyang pagiisip. bale wala na sa kanya ang sasabihin ng kanyang mga kritiko o detractors basta makayanan nyang gawin ang tama at nararapat. inaasahan din po syempre ng mga taga district ang pagdating nya kasi po matagal na ring syang hindi nakita mula noong ma-operahan sya.
