Her updates had part 3 where she shared some snippets of her life in the US while having treatments.

“Explains and answers almost everything that has happened and is happening. 2024 please be kind,” she captioned in Part 1. Additional snippets and photos were seen in Part 2 because she said she didn’t know that reels had only a 90-second limit. In part 3, she stated “my truth, my promise, my prayer for more tomorrows. Thank you for the LOVE
”

Kris initially expressed apologies for not extending Christmas and New Year’s greetings, explaining that she wasn’t feeling well during the holiday season. She mentioned that it was still Thanksgiving, and her health was not at its best.

“I’ve felt very weak, I lost my appetite (considering I was existing mostly on milk), my headaches were on a daily basis, the cold weather didn’t bother me at all. In fact, waist down my skin would feel warm to the touch, sometimes to the point that my jammies soaked in sweat. I was having dizzy spells, and my BP had very weird fluctuations,” she said.

“Twice I had my blood drawn-and the last was for a thorough autoimmune blood panel. It took almost 2 weeks to get my results,” she added. 

She also mentioned having hesitations about sharing photos due to a significant weight loss and low hemoglobin levels. According to her doctor’s advice, she was recommended to consume iron-rich foods like beef, spinach, eggs, chicken, and liver. In addition to this, Kris revealed that she is currently in the initial stage of the autoimmune disease lupus.

“I cried nonstop when I got my blood panel results. My Churg Strauss/EGPA is still being treated, but to add to it my CREST SYNDROME is now in full ACTIVE mode,” Kris said.

“And I’m already exhibiting many symptoms for another autoimmune connective tissue disease- it’s highly likely based on my ANA count, my high inflammatory numbers, my anemia, my now constant elevated blood pressure at night, and the consistent appearance of the “butterfly rash” on my face that I’m at the initial stage of SLE or what’s commonly known as lupus.”

“My methotrexate dosage has been increased, I’m continuing with Dupixent, and I need to gain at least 8 pounds then Dr. Belperio and Dr. Malika Gupta will give me a trial baby dose of Rituxan (RITUXIMAB). It’s a risk because it’s normally given with steroids which my body reacts very adversely to. But my faith is still strong.”

Despite admitting to the worsening condition, Kris stated that the fight continues. She promised her children and siblings that she won’t be weakened. She also expressed gratitude to friends who continue to pray for her complete recovery.

It’s worth noting that prior to this, Jobert Sucaldito had already reported on his showbiz-oriented vlog about Kris’ increased dosage of chemotherapy.

A lot of co-celebrities posted their heart-warming and encouraging messages for Kris’ full healing and recovery. 

Get well soon, Kris!
