Ayu said that her high fever had subsided but she was still weak.

"The doctors want me to rest until I fully regain my strength."

Wanna, 26, said that she became panicky when her mother collapsed at home.

"Thank God he quickly called an ambulance that took her to the nearest hospital," she said, advising fans to pray for Ayu's speedy recovery.
