"Dolphy's condition remains critical but stable, and his vital organs continue to function well," doctors said in a medical bulletin released by MMC on Friday afternoon.

They added that the Comedy King continues to undergo dialysis sessions and treatment for pneumonia, his twelfth in almost a year.

"Dialysis procedure is being done today, after a very restful day yesterday. Treatment for his pneumonia is also being done, and we are all waiting for results of his response to the treatments," the bulletin read.

Meanwhile, 16 of Dolphy's children are in Manila to be by his side as he remains confined at the MMC's intensive care unit.

“Funny nga, agawan, madami kasi kami. Even Zsa Zsa said every moment now has to be enjoyed. She said that and I was already thinking of that days ago. We are happy,” said Ronnie Quizon, one of Dolphy’s sons.

Despite a prolonged confinement -- he was admitted to the hospital last month -- Dolphy continues to show signs of improvement, according to Quizon.

“There were moments when I said my goodbyes to my dad... everyone had closure but my dad is a fighter. Even the doctor said ‘Fighter talaga si Mang Dolphy,'” he said.
