Felix Wong’s Wife Discharged From Hospital After Treatment For Scurvy
Felix Wong’s (黃日華) wife and former TVB artist Leung Kit Wah (梁潔華) was reportedly discharged from the hospital on January 20 and is expected to make a full recovery from scurvy, a condition caused by an insufficient intake of Vitamin C.
When news first broke that Mrs. Wong was admitted to the hospital’s intensive care unit, some suggested that she was suffering from leukemia and had lost weight from rounds of chemotherapy. Since Felix, who is normally outspoken and active on social media, has remained uncharacteristically quiet since December, the media began painting a grim picture of his wife’s condition. In one report, Felix supposedly spent his wedding anniversary on December 7 by his wife’s hospital bed.
Their daughter, actress Adrian Wong (黃芷晴), refuted the rumors over the weekend and assured the public that she is optimistic about her mother’s condition. Felix later echoed his daughter’s response, saying that his wife is regaining her health and will likely be discharged before the Lunar New Year. He added that he will provide more details at a later, more appropriate time.
On January 21, Adrian’s manager clarified the situation on behalf of the family. Mrs. Wong apparently entered the hospital in mid-December and was diagnosed with scurvy. Although a rare and easily treatable illness in modern times, patients with more severe cases still require attentive care and observation. Since Mrs. Wong did not want to alarm family and friends, the family decided to keep the matter private.
After a month in the hospital, Mrs. Wong is now in good enough shape to return home. Her doctor is confident that she will make a complete recovery within the next six months. While scurvy is generally treated with simple changes to the daily diet, Mrs. Wong was also cautioned to avoid coming into contact with bacteria and viruses due to her weakened immune system. Although neither Felix nor Adrian made further comment on Mrs. Wong’s health, they are surely glad to be reunited with their loved one before New Year celebrations.
