Veteran actor William Martinez has improved after suffering a stroke last Nov. 22.
William’s wife Yayo Aguila made the disclosure, adding that she rushed William to St. Lukes Medical Center in Quezon City after he suffered a stroke.
It was gathered that William has regained consciousness and his wife appeals for prayers for his full recovery and privacy as well.
Although the Martinez family opts to keep the details privy, Yayo and William’s daughter Patrizha posted on Twitter her prayers for her father.
“Lord, I know you have a reason for everything… But please, let this be only a challenge for our family. Please take care of my dad. We love him so much.”
“Lord, pagalingin niyo po si Papa agad. Alam kong di niyo siya papabayaan,” she tweeted on Nov. 22.
Patrizha also related having an “all nighter” with her mother Yayo to look out for William—“48 hrs of no sleep and still trying to fight the urge to get some shut eye.”
The Martinez family said they were thanking William’s fans and friends for their prayers, even as they hope for his fast recovery.
