After two years of hospitalization, a Dubai-based overseas Filipino worker (OFW) can finally say “home sweet home”.

Perlie Almonte, who had been under comatose for nine months due to intracerebral haemorrhage, flew to the Philippines on Sunday after a series of active physiotherapy sessions at Rashid Hospital, Gulf News’ Janice Ponce de Leon reported.

“I am so excited to go home. The first thing I’d love to do is hug my two kids,” she told Gulf News by typing the words on her phone.

The report said Almonte could not speak because she had undergone tracheostomy, but she responds by nodding or typing some words on her phone.

Almonte, a supervisor at DHL, was first admitted to the hospital of April 28, 2015 after she was found unconscious in the bathroom of her house.

An earlier statement from Dubai Health Authority said Almonte gained consciousness in January 2016.

In a Facebook post, Almonte thanked staff at Rashid Hospital’s compassion and medical attentional.

“You have been my therapists, supporters, friends, family, well-wishers and angels in disguise. Medicines can cure, a good doctor’s and nurse’s inspirational words can give the strength to fight from within,” she said.

She will continue her rehabilitation at Laguna Doctors Hospital in Sta. Cruz, Laguna.

Almonte’s mother, Lily, said her employer, DHL, shouldered her hospital bills and repatriation.
