Dingdong Avanzado was hospitalized after being stung by a swarm of bees while playing golf, his wife Jessa Zaragoza said.
Zaragoza spoke about the incident with her husband, which she described as “one of the most memorable and harrowing experiences” they have lived as a family, as per her Instagram page yesterday, December 24. She recalled how it was her first time seeing Avanzado in a very bad state after his arrival.
“During Dingdong’s golf game yesterday, he was stung by a swarm of bees. He drove home feeling really sick and disgusted. As soon as he came home, that was the first time I saw my husband throw up really badly,” she said.
Zaragoza shared her concern that Avanzado could go into anaphylactic shock as he initially refused to be taken to the hospital.
“I counted over 40 stings all over his body, most of them on his back where it looks like the bees got into his shirt. I tried to convince him to go to the hospital, pero ayaw talaga. Buti Nakinig sa [anak]!” she said, referring to her daughter Jayda Avanzado.
(I tried to convince him to leave [to] hospital, but he really refused. Glad she listened to her daughter!)
The singer-actress then expressed her gratitude to those who extended her well wishes, noting that her husband is recovering well.
“We hope and pray that he recovers faster. I think the most important thing for our family right now is that we can celebrate this Christmas together. Thank you to all our dear friends who sent us good wishes for Dingdong,” she said.
The couple celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary last March when they posted random photos and videos of themselves being affectionate. /Ra
