Eight months after moving to the United States to get treatment, Kris Aquino finally has "a strong chance of getting better."

On Feb. 2, the TV host and actress took to Instagram to give fans an update on her autoimmune disease  

The post comprises a video of her and sons Josh and Bimby in the hospital, as well as a caption wherein she thanked her followers for their prayers and then shared that she has found a new doctor who she described as the “best,” giving her “renewed confidence” in getting better. 

She wrote, “I failed to ask his permission if I could name him, but my new doctor is considered among the BEST. I waited 3 & a half months to have a face-to-face consultation.” 

“I know I made the right choice because, after months of uncertainty, he gave someone like me, suffering from multiple autoimmune conditions the most important element needed: the renewed confidence to HOPE that although it will be a long process, I do have a strong chance of getting better. #faithful #grateful,” she continued. 

The Instagram video also showed fashion designer Michael Leyva and Kris' sons holding balloons and a cake to surprise her.

She expressed appreciation to Michael, who she considers her “lifelong, loyal friend,” noting that he flew for four nights to make it to her first checkup. 

She wrote, “To the original M.L. in my life @michaelleyva_ , little did I know, July of 2015- I'd make a lifelong, LOYAL friend and for kuya josh & bimb to have an adopted kuya… Ibang klaseng #lovelovelove yung lumipad ka for just 4 nights, timing your trip so you’ll be here on the day I had my 1st checkup… Thank you for the GENUINE LOVE & EXTREME EFFORT.” 

“Super appreciated ko that you never fail to mention that I was one of the people who helped open the door for you- pero dapat malaman ng lahat you won’t be who you are NOW kung hindi ka creative, super sipag, always pleasant, still humble, kusang matulungin, concerned sa welfare ng employees mo and mapagmahal sa pamilya,” she continued. 

A few days ago, the "Queen of All Media" went to Disneyland with her sons, fulfilling her promise to her first-born Josh.  

Kris is has been staying in the United States since June of last year to get treatment after being diagnosed with several autoimmune diseases.
