Congressman Diosdao “Dato” Arroyo, son of former President and now Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, and Elena Bautista-Horn, Arroyo’s spokesperson, conducted an ocular inspection of the Presidential Suite at the Veterans’ Memorial Medical Center. They were also accompanied by the former leader’s doctors from the St. Luke’s Medical Center.
Arroyo and Horn arrived at the VMMC past 10:00 a.m. and entered the 150 square meter hospital suite. The two agreed that the room was quite alright but they pointed out a problem with the reclining hospital bed. “It was manual, former President Gloria would have a hard time readjusting the position of the bed. “We would require it to be replaced by an automatic model instead. Arroyo is very sick already. Do you want her to acquire another illness because of that damn bed?…..W-wait, …..erase that thought,….. the manual bed would be appropriate already”.
Horn said Arroyo lawyers would also appeal the ban on the Internet and cellphone. “She is still a congresswoman and needs to work,” Horn said. “…and how do you expect her to update her Facebook status and Twitter tweets if there would be no Internet access?”
