MANILA, Philippines - The Quizon family appealed for respect after a tabloid reporter tried to sneak into the intensive care unit of Makati Medical Center (MMC) just to get a photo of King of Comedy Dolphy, who's still fighting for his life.

Dolphy's son Ronnie Quizon said that they have been very open to media with the condition of their father so they are hoping that people will also respect and understand their situation.

On Tuesday morning, ABS-CBN News reported that while Dolphy's vitals are stable, he remains in critical condition.

On Monday, Dr. Eric Nubla, director for patient relations of the MMC said Dolphy's condition improved after undergoing tracheostomy.

However, Nubla said Dolphy's platelets are still low, which could cause internal bleeding.
