MANILA, Philippines — Radio disc jockey Nicole Hyala turned emotional upon recalling the recent near-death experience of her daughter, Princess.
In her recent video blog on her YouTue channel, Nicole, together with husband Renly Tinana, opened up about her daughter's bout against viral encephalitis or inflammation of the brain.
Princess spent a month in the hospital with her unexpected condition.
"Nagulat kami kasi akala namin lagnat lang, 'yun pala brain inflammation. Actually napakarami naming tanong, 'Bakit si Princess? Bakit ganoon?' And it was really painful to see her there," she said.
"Sabi nga namin, hindi namin wini-wish na mangyari sa kahit sino itong nangyari sa amin kasi sobrang sakit, sobrang hirap," she added.
Nicole turned to their faith after Princess showed no sign of regression. Fortunately, Princess showed signs of recovery a day after.
"God gave us a miracle. And every day, she started recovering. Every day, may bagong development sa kanya," she said.
"'Yung doctors, unti-unti na nilang sinasabi sa amin na, 'Alam mo, Mommy, akala namin talaga hindi magre-recover si Princess. Of course, meron kaming ginagawa para sa sakit niya, but we do not want to attribute itong paggaling niya sa paggawa namin. We attribute it to God."
Renly said that their hospital bill reached P2.3 million but they only paid P39,000 as the rest was covered by their insurance.
"Alam mo 'yung kulang na lang halikan mo 'yung lupa? Lord, thank you," Renly said.
"Kasi hinanda mo pa rin kami. Kahit ang sakit-sakit ng nangyari sa amin, pinaramdam mo pa rin sa amin 'yung mahal mo kami. Kasi hindi mo alam kung saan mo dadamputin 'yung P2.3 million." — Video from Nicole Hyala via YouTube
