Wilmer Valderrama, star of ‘NCIS,’ reveals that his father had a heart att4ck on Father’s Day
“NCIS” star Wilmer Valderrama revealed that his father had a heart att4ck on Father’s Day.
Earlier, the “NCIS” star posted a selfie with his smiling father from his hospital bed. Fortunately, his father survived the att4ck and appears to be recovering. Valderrama, on the other hand, took the time to express how terrifying the experience was.
“Fathers Day, I’ll remember as the day my papa and I got another shot,” Valderrama began in his caption.
“My father had a major heart att4ck last Sunday.” “One thought came to mind while driving him to the ER and remaining responsive and alert,” the “NCIS” star continued. “If this is our final day together… have I loved him enough?” Have I hugged him and told him he did it… that he sacrificed everything for his family? That I saw him give up everything JUST to give us the American Dream?”
“You taught me to love people and never give up on them,” Valderrama added. To be of service, to give all of you knowing that it will sometimes leave you almost empty… then understanding that made room for more blessings and light… light that you share indefinitely.”
The “NCIS” star took the time to thank a few people who mean a lot to him.
“Thank you God for giving us all one more run, and thank you to the hospitals that saved him,” Valderrama wrote. “I am in awe of your compassion and the miracles you help God perform. “I love you, Papi, and I thank you for fighting to stay.”
Valderrama also left a message for his fans and followers. “Let those of you who still have fathers or father figures know… “Don’t let them go without giving them the assurance that they will live on in your heart forever,” he advised. “And for those of you who now have them as your guardian Angel, remember to communicate with them… their voice will be with you for the rest of your days.”
