- Mike Enriquez made his first public appearance after two months of being on medical leave.
- He shared that he’s now recovering from his heart surgery last September.
Veteran GMA broadcast journalist Mike Enriquez made his first public appearance after his heart bypass operation last September.
He hosted the Kapuso network’s Eleksyon 2019 Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signing with Commission on Elections (COE), academic institutions and other agencies taking part in their coverage of the midterm elections next year.
The news anchor said that he has decided to host the event to serve as a reassurance to the public that he’s in good shape. “Naisip namin magandang pagkakataon to na mag-public appearance na ‘ko para maiparating sa mga tao na okay na ‘ko lalo na ‘yung mga nagdasal.”
Although okay, he still needs time to fully recover from the surgery.
“Yes, mga siguro isang buwan pa o several weeks sabi ng doktor… pero sabi ng doktor kung bago lumipas ‘yun eh malakas na pakiramdam ko ay bumalik na ‘ko, sabi ng mga doktor listen to your body.”
Enriquez then said his thank yous to the viewers and to those wishing for him to have a speedy and uncomplicated recovery.
“Mga Kapuso, sa nagparating po ng mensahe ng pagpapagaling at higit sa lahat sa mga nagdasal, maraming-maraming salamat po at ang maisusukli ko lang po sa inyo ay pagpapalakas ng kalusugan para lalo pa kaming makapaglingkod sa inyo.”
The broadcaster took a medical leave last August to prepare for the said surgery. He also revealed that he is also being treated for a kidney disease.
