Jo-Love: Helpful Tips for the Revilla Family
The road out of the hospital...and also out of our headlines.
(SPOT.ph) On March 3, Attorney Raymund Fortun gave a medical bullet (whereabouts of an actual doctor unclear) to the press about Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla's condition. According to the family lawyer and spokesperson, "The fact that there are now developing matters happening in Jolo's body, his condition is definitely not improving but deteriorating."
The country was witness to an emotional, telenovela-like reunion of father and son, while on social media, a mother continued to ask for prayers. In the interest of helping this family in their time of need, here are a few things that we believe could help Vice Governor Revilla get better:
- Don't move a patient to a room more conducive to a photo shoot.
- Have someone call your mother's talent manager to advise her against feeding the media information about your possible depression. Research shows that patients recover quicker if they are not emotionally compromised.
- On that note, everyone around you should probably also stay away from social media, to reduce the risk of running into posts like this one by Carlos Celdran:
- Maybe the doctor needs to say something for once, and not the family or their lawyer. Because, "Mas kampante at mas maraming bisita ang makakapunta ’pag sa regular room. Mahirap sa ICU kasi talagang two to three lang ang pwedeng mapapasok" sounds weird. By the power vested in us by numerous episodes of House and other medical dramas, we have reason to believe that a patient in critical condition needs plenty of rest, and not more visitors.
We hope the Vice Governor gets the medical attention and care he needs, if only so he can shed some light on what he was apologizing to his father for.
