Singer-actress Isabel Granada is fighting for her life as she falls into a coma after collapsing while in Doha, Qatar.
Isabel’s friend, Bianca Lapus, had posted on her Facebook an update on Isabel’s condition and is asking for prayers from everyone. Her post states, that Isabel is currently in a hospital in Doha, Qatar after she collapsed on Tuesday, October 24.
Isabel travelled to Doha along with her husband, Arnel Principe-Cowley as a celebrity speaker for the Philippine Trade Tourism Conference. Bianca posted, “She was rushed at the Heart Hospital Hamad Medical Corp. Now at HGH (Hamad General Hospital) in Qatar.”
“I have not communicated with her family yet. I’m waiting for updates. But the initial info I got is from our dear Robby Tarroza, according to his post, Isa is in critical condition. Massive internal bleeding in the head. Aneurysm.”
“She suddenly collapsed lang daw. So I’m doing my best to get updates from the people who are there now.”
“Please please she needs prayer warriors now.”
After her post, Bianca gave an update that Isabel is now in coma and a “status of post cardiac arrest.”
Bianca continued, “But according to the nurse I chatted with in Qatar, she was transferred to Hamad Hospital and its confirmed she has internal bleeding and aneurysm. She will undergo a major operation anytime now. But according to the respiratory therapist she had 6 times cardiac arrest.”
Aneurysm is defined by the Heart Organization as when part of an artery wall weakens, allowing it to widen abnormally or balloon out. The causes of aneurysms are sometimes unknown. Some may be congenital, meaning a person is born with them. An aneurysm may also occur as the result of aortic disease or an injury.
