Dolphy’s doctors said the veteran comedian underwent another blood transfusion and dialysis on Monday.

Dolphy's pneumonia is also being controlled and the doctors are just finishing the cycle and waiting for the respiratory illness to be completely healed.

His doctors said Dolphy's medical condition remains stable and is improving.

According to the Quizon family, visitation remains limited and restricted.

Those who wish to see Dolphy will have to ask clearance from family members, so the comedian could be kept away from other viruses that might cause further complications.

The 83-year-old actor was brought to the Makati Medical Center early June after contracting pneumonia.
