Due to being diagnosed with bacterial meningitis last October 2020, causing her right ear to go deaf, singer Lani Misalucha now reveals that she is using a hearing aid to help her hear again.
In an Instagram video posted last Tuesday, January 12, Asia’s Nightingale updated her followers about her sickness, which was also acquired by her husband Noli.
“We are okay naman ngayon, but the problem is ’yong bacterial meningitis na ’yan ay iniwanan kami ng souvenir at ang souvenir na ’yon ay hearing loss at vestibular dysfunction,” she said. “So, like every single day, meron kaming hilo sa ulo. ’Yong konting movement ng ulo [...], super nakakahilo na ’yan.”
Lani added that her husband Noli was the one experiencing even worse symptoms than her.
"Pero ang malala talaga na bingi, si Papa Nols. So, siya yung mas malalang nahihilo at malala ang kanyang pagkabingi,” she said.
After this, Lani showed her followers the hearing aid piece, how she assembles it, and how she applies it.
In the end, she expressed gratitude for those who extended their love and support towards her battle with bacterial meningitis.
“Guys, maraming maraming salamat sa lahat na nag-offer ng kanilang prayers and thank you so much for your love and support. I love you, guys.”
It could be recalled that Lani first revealed that she had the infection during the Christmas special of the reality singing competition The Clash, which was aired last Christmas Day, December 25.
It was the infection that caused the singer to depart from her judging duties on the show, being replaced by Pops Fernandez in early December of 2020. She had been a judge alongside Christian Bautista and Ai-Ai Delas Alas since the show’s premiere last 2018.
Get well soon, Ms. Lani!
