Pokwang prays: ‘Sana wag na muna syang kunin sa amin’

An emotional Pokwang has revealed that the condition of her mother afflicted with Alzeihmer’s disease has gotten worse.

“Yakap ko sya. Sabi ko sa kanya ‘sino ako?’ Sabi nya, ‘ikaw si Pokwang sa ‘Wowowee’. Kasi pag tinatanong ko s’ya, sasabihin nya ‘ikaw si Mayette.’ So medyo ok ok pa sya nun,” said Pokwang, 45, in an exclusive interview on “Tonight With Boy Abunda” on ABS-CBN.

“Pero nung sinabi na nya paulit ulit ‘ikaw si Pokwang. ‘Ano moko? Ano moko? At sabi nya ‘bayaw,’ dun na talaga ako nadurog,” Pokwang said.

In 2015, Pokwang revealed that her mother Gloria, 75, showed signs of Alzheimer’s disease, a progressive mental deterioration that can happen during middle or old age.

Pokwang told her siblings to let their mother feel how much they love her.

“Sabi ko sa mga kapatid ko, iparamdam na lang natin sa kanya kung gaano natin sya kamahal. Kung gaano tayo ka-thankful sa kanya na kahit dose tayo naitaguyod nya tayo. Araw-araw iparamdam natin na mahal natin sya,” the comedian said.

Pokwang prayed that her mother would live longer.

“Sana wag na muna syang kunin sa amin kasi kahit na mahina ang memorya nya, pagmamahal nya sa amin hindi naman nawawala. Hindi kami nawawalan ng pag-asa nababalik pa ang lahat sa normal,” she said.

“At kung sakali man talagang natuluyan nang nawala ang memorya nya, gusto ko lang baunin nya na malaman nya kung gaano namin sya kamahal,” Pokwang said.

Pokwang was last seen in the Kapamilya afternoon series “We Will Survive” with Melai Cantiveros. She will soon be seen in the upcoming primetime teleserye “Till I Met You” starring James Reid and Nadine Lustre.
