Inquirer.net reports that Cielo Macapagal-Salgado-half-sister of former president and current Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo-said the latter "looked healthy" when they met on Wednesday, October 26. Salgado and Arroyo had lunch and prayed in the latter’s home in La Vista Subdivision in Quezon City.

 

"She looks OK, except for the (neck) brace. She can eat, walk and talk," revealed Salgado. Arroyo has been wearing the steel brace since she was discharged from St. Luke's Medical Center, where she underwent a series of spinal surgeries.

 

The report presented Salgado’s observations in contrast to the claims of local officials who are close to Arroyo.  These official had said that Arroyo’s hair had gone "silver" and that she had turned gaunt and had "shrunk in size." (The report did not specify who these officials are.)

 

The Inquirer.net report added, "A local official who visited the former President last week claimed that Arroyo could no longer have her hair dyed because her doctors had advised her against moving her head and neck." The official added that he tried to hide his tears when he saw Arroyo's condition.

 

However, Salgado said her Arroyo’s hair was "jet black" during her visit.
