Araw-araw ngang ipinagpapasalamat ni Iza Calzado ang buhay niya. Matapos nga namang malagay sa alanganin ang kanyang buhay dahil sa COVID-19, malaking bagay na nga `yung araw-araw ay nagigising ka at nakakahinga nang maluwag.
“Hello Everyone! It’s a brand new week and today I am grateful for my life.
“Most of you know what happened to me. Before I talk about it, I would like to address something.
“When I started getting sick, I made a comment on an IG post that was totally misconstrued. I understand how and why that happened and I am sorry if anyone was offended and felt bad about it.
“Please know that I would never ever intentionally say anything to hurt others nor celebrate anyone else’s suffering. I am a hopeful person and always try to see the silver lining in every dark cloud. I am sad that you missed my heart (but I also understand your sentiments).
“After 2 weeks of battling Covid, pneumonia and a nasty bacteria called Acinetobacter Baumannii, I am alive and for that I am truly grateful. I know that so many of you sent your love and support and I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of you.
“Please know that even if I didn’t get to read all the messages, I felt the love and good energy and that you helped me pull through one of the darkest moments of my life.
“Everything by God’s Grace, of course, but your prayers did so much for me. I hope in some way, I can pay it forward.
“I wish to thank all the frontliners especially my doctors and nurses in Asian Hospital for going above and beyond to make sure I live, breathe and have another shot at life.
“To Dr. Jorge Garcia, Kuya Joel and the family, much love and respect. Thank you.
“Thank you for the support from my Kapamilya family who always checked up on me and made sure that I was fine until the finish line.
“My deepest gratitude to my friends, family who prayed HARD and really made me feel their love and care for me especially my number 1 nurse, my husband, Ben. I could never have done this without you, my Love. We did it, by God’s Grace, we made it.
“I have a lot more to say and I hope you indulge me as I start posting about my reflections, realizations and perhaps my purpose from here on forward.
“Today, I encourage you to take a moment, Thank God for Your breath, Thank God for Your life and everyone in Your life and let us continue to pray for those who are suffering and for those who are trying their best to help those in need. Together, we can overcome all of this. Mabuhay!”
