MANILA, Philippines - King of Comedy Dolphy continues on his way to recovery after he was recently cleared of pneumonia by his doctors at the Makati Medical Center.

Dr. Eric Nubla, director of the MMC's patient relations, said Dolphy still has "some infection in his system."

"[Dolphy] is lucid, he answers back by nodding his head, raises his eyebrows, lifts his hands minimally, and winces and grimaces. He squeezes family members' hands and tries to mouth words and smile," Nubla said.
