While the elected government officials throughout the country celebrated their first 100 days in office last week, Governor Agustin Perdices was lying down on a hospital bed.

Perdices, 75, had been admitted at the St. Luke’s Medical Center in Quezon City since Sept. 30 and as of Friday afternoon, doctors were still not sure what was wrong.{{more}}

Dumaguete City Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria, who visited Perdices at the hospital Tuesday, said the governor was starting to get better. “He had a bleeding ulcer and his blood sugar was high but that has been addressed,” Sagarbarria said.

Interviewed by phone, Perdices told the MetroPost that he left for Manila to seek medical treatment after he noticed that he was feeling weak. “My doctors have mentioned several possibilities but we’re still awaiting the results of the tests,” Perdices said Friday.

The governor said he hoped to be home before his birthday on October 16, but added, “at my age, anything can happen.”

Perdices, who won as Vice Governor in the May 10 elections, was thrust to the governorship following the death of Governor Emilio Macias II. Likewise, Board Member Roel Degamo stepped up to become the Vice Governor to fill the vacancy left by Perdices.

Last October 4, Degamo assumed as acting governor, pursuant to the Local Government Code provisions on vacancies and succession.
