First Gentleman suffers aneurysm in other part of heart

Posted by akosistella on March 26, 2010

MANILA, Philippines—Amid fresh controversies hounding his family, First Gentleman Jose Miguel “Mike” Arroyo was Thursday hospitalized with a heart ailment for the third time in three years. Doctors said his illness required “aggressive medical treatment.”

A medical bulletin Thursday night described Arroyo’s condition as “stable but guarded” after he suffered what a doctor interpreted as a recurrence of aneurysm “in another part of the heart.” Malacañang said he was under “intense medical care.”

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo canceled all her scheduled engagements from morning to evening to stay close to her husband at St. Luke’s Medical Center-Global City in Taguig City.

“Let’s pray for the health and the recovery of the First Gentleman,” the President’s spokesperson, Ricardo Saludo, told reporters.

Mike Arroyo, 63, was brought to the hospital at around 8 a.m. after experiencing what was initially described as “back pains.”

“I understand that it’s serious. He’s in the ICU (intensive care unit). I want to go there and see him,” Interior Secretary Ronaldo Puno told reporters in Makati City, where he had presided over the oath-taking of new commissioners of the National Police Commission.
