- Wendy Valdez gave an update about her son's health
- Their baby boy, who turned one on June 11, was born with spina bifida
- It is a condition where a baby's spine and spinal cord don't develop properly in the womb
The couple Wendy Valdez and Normann Garcia had always been optimistic about their son Seth's medical condition.
Seth was born with spina bifida—which was defined by WebMD.com as a type of neural tube defect where "a baby's spine and spinal cord don't develop properly in the womb, causing a gap in the spine." Their son turned 1 year old last June 11.
On Wendy's fourth month of pregnancy, the couple learned about their son's condition.
The actress said that she trusts God's plans for their son.
"Ako, hindi namin alam if makakalakad si Seth. Pero kung ano magagawa namin, gagawin namin, the rest is up to God kung yun ang plano niya para kay Seth. she said to an Instagram follower.
"Nalulungkot din ako kapag nakikita ko mga bata na kasabay niya na nakakalakad, pero wala ko magagawa kung iba ang istorya niya."
In one of Wendy's latest Instagram post, she shared that her son did not have to wear his hip brace the whole day.
"Hip Brace Removed.
"It was 7 months ago when Seth first discovered his foot and started playing with it, but their acquaintance was cut short, kasi kailangan na siya lagyan ng braces because of his hip dysplasia." Hip dysplasia is a condition where hip bone don't fit together correctly.
"Last week, he finally got a rest from wearing his hip brace.
"After 4 months in a harness and 7 months in a brace, night time niya na lang daw isusuot ang hip brace niya, sa araw puwede nang wala.
"If the hips would hold up during the 2 week observation of not wearing the brace at daytime, puwede na siya ulit mag-therapy."
Wendy and Norman remains hopeful for their son's development.
"We are praying na hindi na maaalis ang right hip niya sa tamang posisyon, para tuluy-tuloy na siyang hindi gagamit ng hip brace.
"Seth was super excited to reunite with his feet. Na-miss niya sobra kaya kinakain nya mga paa niya madalas.
The happy mommy also shared her son's milestone.
Nakakadapa na din siya konti konti. Yehey!"
She once shared about her son's condition in Instagram.
"His hip bone is not in the right position, and he has mild hydrocephalus—all [caused] by an opening in his spine while he was still in the womb."
Wendy Valdez came to prominence after being part of Abs-cbn's reality show, Pinoy Big Brother. Though she did not finish as the grand winner, Wendy bagged many acting roles in TV series as well as movies.
