“Ang bilis kasi noon. Noong madaling araw bago mag-Wednesday, nagkaroon ng lagnat. 'Yun lang ang lagnat niya talaga. Hindi siya nilagnat nang dire-diretso. Pagdating ng Thursday, Friday, wala siyang lagnat at saka masigla siya. Wala siyang mga sign kasi tinitingnan ko siya kung may rashes o bleeding, wala talaga. Kaya lang noong Sabado, medyo matamlay siya. Kaya ang ginawa ko [dahil] sarado ang clinic, diniretso ko sa OsMak (Ospital ng Makati).
"Pagdating doon sa OsMak, sabi mababa raw ang platelets niya. Ang ginawa ay diniretso na po siya sa ICU. Tapos wala na, dire-diretso na hanggang Sunday ng after lunch [binawian siya ng buhay],” Angeli recounted.
