Batangas Governor Vilma Santos has returned to work after she was hospitalized due to stress and stomach ulcer.

Santos’ hospitalization was confirmed by her son, TV host Luis Manzano, on “ASAP” last Sunday, after weeks of speculation about the screen veteran’s health.

According to Batangas’ public information officer Jing Segismundo, Santos resumed work on Monday.

Segismundo added that Santos had been grieving the passing of her personal assistant of 20 years, Aida Fandalian, who died in July. (MNS)
