Dolphy, who has been struggling with a faltering immune system, has even developed a stronger appetite upon returning home from the hospital, Quizon said.

"Okay na siya, he's home. Wala na siya sa hospital, nasa bahay na siya. So that's a good sign 'di ba?" he said.

"My dad's okay. Actually I was just with him the other day. Actually ang lakas nga kumain, at saka witty pa rin. Nagpapatawa pa rin, same as ever," Quizon said during a celebrity golf tournament on Monday.

"Medyo lumakas siya ngayon eh," he added.

In February, Dolphy was confirmed to be suffering from an unstable medical condition by his long-time partner singer Zsa Zsa Padilla.

In a taped message, Dolphy in April thanked the public, especially his fans, for continuing to pray for his recovery.
