Dimples Romana Has A Deeper Appreciation For Her Family After Husband's Health ScareThe terrifying ordeal has reminded Dimples that family is the most important thing.by Kate Borbon .
On December 3, Dimples, who currently stars in the teleserye Kadenang Ginto, took to Instagram to talk about rushing Boyet to the hospital after he woke up “choking and throwing up blood” in the middle of the night.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
In her post, Dimples revealed that Boyet had just undergone a throat operation and was subsequently put on a soft diet by his doctor. However, he had difficulties observing this diet and ended up eating.
Dimples provided an update on her husband’s condition at the press conference of her upcoming film The Mall, The Merrier on December 10, 2019.
“Boyet just came out of the hospital,” she said. “Thank you to my ABS-CBN family and to my Kadenang Ginto family, they really understood. In fact, I missed out [on] one taping.”
The actress shared that on that day, she was supposed to tape the show at 5 a.m. But when Boyet woke up and threw up blood at 1 a.m., she immediately took him to hospital.
She contacted the show’s staff before they arrived at the hospital to inform them of the situation. Thankfully, they were extremely understanding of her.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
“My KG family, our writers, our directors, wala silang tanong, ‘Bakit, anong nangyari? Puwede ka ba ng ganitong oras?’” she shared. “Naiintindihan nila, as in, ‘Oo, Dimps, family first, always.”
Boyet threw up so much blood, causing his wife to get scared. “I thought I was gonna lose my husband. I’m not exaggerating when I say anim na Ziploc ng dugo, walang tubig… puro galing sa tiyan niya, sa lalamunan niya.”ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Thankfully, Boyet’s condition eventually normalized. The first thing he did was ask the doctors to remind Dimples of her work commitments.
“Sabi ng asawa ko, ‘Dok, puwede mo nang paalisin si Dimples kasi may 5 a.m. siya.’ Can you imagine how selfless my husband is?”
Dimples also talked about what happened on Tonight With Boy Abunda, saying that because of what had happened to him, Boyet needed to undergo another operation and a blood transfusion.
The terrifying ordeal has reminded Dimples of what’s most important for her: family.
“Sabi ko nga, ‘Lord, kunin mo na lahat…’ Parang hindi ko kaya, Tito Boy, na maagang mawawala si Boyet… Puwede po akong walang pera, Tito Boy, pero walang pamilya, hindi ko po ata kaya. Hindi ko po kayang mawala siya,” she said tearfully.
Dimples also said in the press conference that Christmas now has a deeper meaning for her.
“I was so afraid, at ngayon tuloy, iba yung feeling ng Pasko sa akin. Kasi pakiramdam ko, ganoon lang pala iyon, isang ganoon lang, o, puwedeng mawala. So nagkaroon ako ng deeper appreciation even more sa kung anuman meron kami, kung ano yung dumarating na blessing.”ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

She continued, “Kasi minsan, di ba, sa sobrang dami ng trabaho, kasi tinatrabaho ko ito, pangarap ko rin, e, para sa pamilya. Sila ang driving force mo. Pero nabigyan ako ng perspective na dapat maghinay ako kasi kailangan nila ako.”
On December 15, Dimples shared to Instagram that Boyet again needed to be taken to the hospital. She said that her daughter Callie sent her a text message about seeing him spitting blood.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Though Dimples informed the Kadenang Ginto staff of what happened, she decided to ask her brother to take Boyet to the hospital instead. Thankfully, he is now “stable and on his way to recovery.”
She wrote, “Akala ata ng mga pagsubok na ito, kaya nila ako! Huy, pagsubok, wala ka sa Panginoon ko!”
