Kris Aquino revealed that she decided to isolate herself and her family after her youngest son Bimby fell sick due to pneumonia.

“I made the conscious decision to isolate ourselves, we found a friend and she kindly allowed us the use of their spare room, separate from their family’s area,” said the 49-year-old mom of two boys — Joshua, 24 and Bimby, 12 — in an Instagram post on Friday.

“Nag magandang loob na si Willie, nakakahiya kung may mahawa pa sa masamang ubo and pneumonia ni Bimb. The three of us are the only family we have now kaya walang iwanan,” she added.

i made the conscious decision to isolate ourselves, we found a friend and she kindly allowed us the use of their spare room, separate from their family’s area. Nag magandang loob na si willie, nakakahiya kung may mahawa pa sa masamang ubo & pneumonia ni bimb. The 3 of us are the only family we have now kaya walang iwanan… Kuya is so tall, kaya diagonal sya sa bed. My prayers were answered, hindi nagka fever si bimb. He took his 2nd dose of antibiotics, and okay ang appetite nya. i’ve been awake 24 hours (all parents will understand me) nag bantay ako to make sure nakatulog sya, no chills, and hindi hirap huminga. Sharing this to remind everyone, wag dedmahin ang ubo- and let’s care enough about the health of others to not risk their health? Constant hand washing helps a lot- the 3 of us are always together but because i have been strict about washing hands & disinfecting our gadgets, so far okay kami ni kuya. Speaking of kuya josh, nasilip ko his phone habang ka text nya si tito Noy while kuya told him bimb was sick. Nakakatouch because kuya josh told his tito Noy: i miss you & i love you so much… i saw the reply: love you, josh. Maybe reminder for all of us to tell everyone we care about how much they mean to us & how much we love them, whether we are near or far… may God bless you and your families during this time of trials & uncertainty. #faith Exodus 23:25 NLT You must serve only the LORD your God. If you do, I will bless you with food and water, and I will protect you from illness.

Earlier, the former TV personality posted that she was spending the month-long quarantine, which has been imposed by the government on Luzon to stem the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) spread in the country, at the private resort of Willie Revillame. She and the kids were even fetched by a private helicopter going to the property of the TV host. (READ: Kris Aquino spends community quarantine in Willie Revillame’s beach resort.)

But on Thursday, Kris opened up on via Instagram that her youngest son has had developed a bad cough in the past 10 days. She is taking consolation in the fact that Bimby has no fever, no chills and has not lost his appetite.

“My prayers were answered, hindi nagka fever si Bimb. He took his second dose of antibiotics, and okay ang appetite nya. I’ve been awake 24 hours (all parents will understand me) nag bantay ako to make sure nakatulog sya, no chills, and hindi hirap huminga,” she said.

Constant hand washing helps a lot — the three of us are always together but because I have been strict about washing hands and disinfecting our gadgets, so far okay kami ni Kuya.”

She also shared that her older son Joshua was texting her brother, former Pres. Noynoy Aquino, to update about Bimby’s condition. It’s no showbiz secret that Kris has had a “complicated relationship” with her brother.

“Speaking of Kuya Josh, nasilip ko his phone habang ka text nya si Tito Noy while Kuya told him Bimb was sick. Nakakatouch because Kuya Josh told his Tito Noy: I miss you and I love you so much… I saw the reply: love you, Josh.”

“Maybe reminder for all of us to tell everyone we care about how much they mean to us and how much we love them, whether we are near or far… may God bless you and your families during this time of trials & uncertainty. #faith,” she ended.

In a separate Instagram post, Kris said that while she herself has a health issue to deal with, she is a mother first and foremost.

“My autoimmune condition dictates I should be farther from my bunso pero nangibabaw ang pagiging nanay — pag ganito ang sitwasyon, we all realize what truly matters.”

She has also closed off her comments section because “sorry can’t handle the stress kung i-bash pa kami.”

i was on the phone w/ my sister (the very private one kaya won’t name her) friends nya ang mga taga PBSP who are helping Maestro Ryan Cayabyab with BAYANIHAN MUSIKAHAN (please check their FB account, concert every night to raise much needed funds for food & care packs, equipment for our health care workers etc.) My sister said it would mean a lot if i sent a donation, so Alvin brought what was on hand at home to her home. the closest hospital to us is Medical City & that’s where my neurologist @pianomanph practices… i asked what i may send to the understaffed & overworked ICU & ER nurses & staff… my staff at home prepared fruits, pizzas, and drinks together w/ the short letter i dictated… everytime we’ve had an emergency sila ang takbuhan namin kaya my turn to show appreciation & concern for the medical frontliners. habang nangyayari lahat nito, a pediatrician from where we are now came to check on me, umatake ang hives ko all over my body… mother’s instinct kicked in- bimb has had a bad cough for more than 10 days & i asked Dr. delos Reyes to please check him. i felt mag co-collapse na ko when he said masama ang narinig nya sa left lung ni bimb & he feared pneumonia… we isolated from everyone- i am in the front part of the living room, bimb is in the back, kuya josh is in the upper deck. Thank God may foresight yung nag pack for us- we have all the disinfectants, paper plates, and cups & utensils- antibac soap etc.. Bimb started zithromax… My consolation is he has no fever or body aches, has an appetite and no body aches for now. Hiyang hiya ako sa mga nandito but keeping my faith after 3rd dose of antibiotics na sana hindi na sya lagnatin. i’m turning off comments, sorry cannot handle stress kung i-bash pa kami… i only wanted to help raise awareness for BAYANIHAN MUSIKAHAN and recognize the heroism of medical professionals. i have always believed, those of us who have been blessed must share those blessings dahil “walang sino man ang nabubuhay para sa sarili lamang” – my autoimmune condition dictates i should be farther from my bunso pero nangibabaw ang pagiging nanay- pag ganito ang sitwasyon, we all realize what truly matters. ?
