Last Friday, Dolphy's son Eric Quizon assured everyone that his father's "vitals are all in order," but added that he is still under intensive care.

"My Dad was sent to the hospital last Saturday because of pneumonia. This made him weak because of his chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). They had to attach a respirator in order to help him breathe.

"Currently, his vitals are all in order and he is responding to treatment very well. However, he is still under close observation and round-the-clock intensive care to make sure he recovers well," Eric said.
