A month after undergoing an open-heart surgery, veteran ABS-CBN journalist Doris Bigornia appeared for the first time on TV.
Showing up on her DZMM Teleradyo program SRO on Monday, Doris took the chance to express her gratitude to the doctors who “saved my life” and people who extended their support through financial assistance or prayers.
She said, “Unang una talaga siyempre sa Diyos, sa pangalawang buhay na ‘to… sa mga doctor ko.”
“Kaya lahat… Wala po akong pinipili, wala po akong itatatwa na nagbigay ng panalangin… Hindi ko alam kung paano ko po kayo pasasalamatan.
Doris is grateful that she was able to get through the ordeal with the help of the people around her and considers her recovery a miracle.
“Isang milagro ang nangyari, sa totoo lang at hindi ko inakala na malalagpasan ko. Kung wala kayong lahat hindi ko magagawa ng malagpasan ito.
“Sabi ko nga nung nakaratay ako, nakakahiya naman doon sa ilang libong tao na mga tao..mga prayer warriors, parang nahiya naman ako kung hindi ko lalabanan kaya pinili kong lagpasan.
“Thank God, ito po ako on my way to recovery. I’m hoping to see you again,” she added.
Doris, who was seen with a gauze bandage on her neck, shared that she’s still undergoing dialysis due to kidney failure following her triple heart bypass surgery.
“Mahirap ‘yung dialysis, pero BFF ko na ngayon ang dialysis kasi siya rin ang sumasalba sa buhay ko,” she said.
Alvin Elchico, Doris’ co-anchor in SRO, first revealed that the seasoned broadcaster suffered a heart attack in late February.
