Although he has been asking for prayers though social media for his ailing lolo, Vice Ganda opened up for the first time on The Buzz about his grandfather's failing health condition.
Vice explained that his lolo, who was responsible for raising him when his mother flew overseas, has been in the intensive care unit due to multiple organ failure.
"'Yung dalawang lungs niya nagfe-fail na. 'Yung kidney nag-fail na. 'Yung presyon ng dugo niya pababa na ng pababa," he shared.
In fact, Vice explained that his lolo is no longer undergoing any medical procedure.
"Hindi na nga mine-medicate. Wala nang gamot na binibigay kasi hindi na talaga nagre-respond pero hindi siya bumibigay. Hanggang sa huling sandali ako ang iniisip," Vice said.
But The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin star clarified that his grandfather is not yet comatose "kaya lang sine-sedate kasi restless dahil ang daming nakasaksak na tubo sakanya. Nakatali na nga siya eh kasi ikot ng ikot tapos tinatanggal 'yung mga aparato."
While he wants his lolo to stay longer, Vice claimed that he has accepted the fact that the battle is slowly taking a toll on his body.
"'Lord sabi ko, hindi ko alam kung tama pero kunin mo na. Pwede bang kunin mo na.' Pero siguro 'yung Lolo ko ang tumatanggi, sabi niya siguro kay Lord 'wag muna kasi may pelikula pa ang apo ko. Ayokong makaabala,'" he shared.
Thinking of his welfare has apparently been his lolo's habit, according to Vice, who shared their last conversation before the latter was sedated.
"'Yung huling nag-usap kami bago siya i-sedate tinanong niya ako kung anong oras na. Eh 3:30 na ng madaling araw 'yun sabi niya 'Tulog kana kasi may Showtime kapa.' So sabi ko hanggang sa huling sandali ako talagaang iniisip niya," Vice said.
He even presupposes that his lolo does not want to leave the world yet for fear that he might come between his work especially now that he is promoting his Metro Manila Film Festival entry, aside from doing It's Showtime and Gandang Gabi Vice.
Yet amid his seeming acceptance of his grandfather's impending fate, Vice didn't mask the fact that there's still an ounce of hope in his heart that his beloved relative would miraculously recover.
"Kung napapansin niyo araw-araw para akong baliw pamigay ako ng pamigay ng sapatos sa Showtime. So tinatanong ako nung kasama ko sa bahay para daw akong tanga kasi pamigay ako ng pamigay ng sapatos. 'Bakit ka pamigay ng pamigay ng sapatos?'"
"Sabi ko baka matuwa sa akin ang Diyos, baka 'pag natuwa sa akin ang Diyos pagalingin niya ulit ang lolo ko," he shared.
