MANILA, Philippines—From being stable in the past weeks, the condition of the cancer-stricken Corazon Aquino has been “guarded” since Monday afternoon, according to her son Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.

But the former President continues to fight, surprising even her doctors, the senator told reporters Tuesday.

In a statement, he said: “The doctors are continuously monitoring her blood pressure, which has been fluctuating.

“She is presently asleep, comfortable and not in pain.”

Speaking with reporters later in the Senate, Noynoy Aquino said he found out when he returned to the hospital on Monday afternoon that his mother’s blood pressure had turned “erratic.”

Noynoy Aquino said doctors had earlier told the family that their mother had only three months to live. He said she was not told of the prognosis but had surpassed it by 17 months now.

He described it as “a miracle,” pointing out that “no one can say exactly” when a person would pass on.

The senator admitted that the former President suffered a “serious episode” last weekend, and that this triggered the fluctuations in her blood pressure.

“The doctors have been saying they were surprised by Mommy’s fighting spirit … and we too are surprised,” he said.
