Bong Revilla appeals for more prayers for his father

Former Senator Ramon Revilla health has improved but is still critical after suffering a stroke Tuesday morning.

His son, Senator Ramon 'Bong' Revilla Jr., said that on a scale of one to ten (ten being the best), her father's condition has improved from 2 to 5 as of Tuesday night.

Revilla said the next three days will be critical for the 81-year-old patriarch of the Revilla clan.

He asked the public to continue praying for his father's recovery.

"Kailangan pa rin ng dasal," said Revilla, who followed his father's successful career from acting to politics.

Revilla said his father is battling his illness as indicated by his response after he told him that he has a new great grandchild, Alexa Daniela del Rosario, who was born Tuesday to parents Inah and Vince del Rosario.

"Napaluha siya...napangiti siya," Revilla said of his father's response.

Bong's daughter, Inah, gave birth at 6:59 p.m. at the Makati Medical Center just hours after her grandfather suffered a stroke.

The Revilla patriarch became senator in 1992 after a long career in the movie industry. He became known as the father of the Public Works Act which was signed into law in 1995.
