According to the 38-year-old star, she has suffered injuries on her left forearm, left thigh, and right breast after getting attacked by a Chow Chow during a family affair in Baguio City.
"We didn’t get to take photos when it happened or in the emergency room. There was so much going on that nobody thought of it. These are photos of my arm after surgery when my bandages were being changed. But initially when it first happened there was some fat hanging out of the wound and I could even see the tendon in my wrist. Luckily there’s no permanent damage and no arteries or nerves were harmed," captioned Antoinette to a series of photos showing her bites on Facebook on Monday.
"I don’t mean to worry anyone, but I just wanted to give a proper update for those concerned. I have some events and meetings lined up this week and I sincerely apologize for not being able to attend to work for now. Praying for a speedy recovery and deeply grateful to the amazing doctors and nurses that have been so wonderful in taking care of me since I arrived," she added.
Though she didn't delve into details about the events leading to the attack, Antoinette assured that she could never harm the dog that attacked her.
"I am an animal lover and my natural instincts wouldn’t allow me to harm the dog that was attacking me. He is perfectly fine. But I am definitely traumatized most especially by the chow chow breed," she said.
Meanwhile, hundreds of Antoinette's Facebook followers offered their sincere prayers for her fast recovery.
