Comedy king Dolphy still remains in critical yet stable condition, the Makati Medical Center (MMC) reported.

According to the latest bulletin, the hospital said Dolphy's health showed significant improvement but his platelet and potassium levels are still low.

Doctor Eric Nubla, director of MMC's Patients Relations Office, said Dolphy was undergoing blood transfusion earlier this afternoon and followed by another session of dialysis.

"[Dolphy's health is] still guarded. Critical, but stable," Nubla said.

He was given proper medication and his diet is being adjusted to to raise his body's potassium level.

The hospital did not give additional details about the health of the veteran actor, who is battling pneumonia for the 11th time in 11 months.

Dolphy has been suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD, which hinders the flow of air to his lungs.

He underwent tracheostomy Saturday night “to alleviate from a lot of discomfort and make it easier for his organs to perform properly,” according to a statement from his family Sunday.
Close friends and family of Dolphy are allowed to see him but they are carefully screened, according to the MMC official.

The hospital is expected to issue its next bulletin on Dolphy's health on Tuesday.
