Jim Edmonds is on the road to recovery after testing positive for Coronavirus.
The former Real Housewives of Orange County husband revealed on Wednesday, April 1 that he tested positive for Coronavirus.
“I appreciate everyone who has said well wishes and wished me the best,” Jim said in his Instagram Story. “I did test positive for pneumonia and I did get a test back positive for the virus. I am completely symptom-free now and doing really well, so I must have had it for a while before I got tested.”
He went on to say that he’s glad he “listened to what everyone else said” and quarantined himself.
“[My] daughter has been tested, she is waiting for results but symptom-free,” Jim added. “We are all doing really well here. … I’ve been cleaning the garage and losing my mind, but in all fairness, [I’m doing] really good and am happy to be symptom-free and doing greet.”
Jim also advised his social media followers: “Do not take this lightly. If you do not feel good, go to the doctor, go to the emergency room if you can. … They didn’t want to test me and I forced them to take me into the emergency room and lo and behold, pneumonia and the virus, so don’t take it lightly. Take care of yourself. There’s no medicine, nothing but rest. That’s all I’ve been doing.”
On Saturday, March 28 Jim went to the hospital to get a chest x-ray and get tested for COVID19. He shared the journey on social media and showed himself getting oxygen and wearing a mask.
“I didn’t know the swab could go that far in someone’s nose,” he wrote at the time.
He added, “Held off as long as I could. I thought I was tough enough to get through. This virus is no joke.”
Wishing Jim a speedy and healthy recovery.
The Real Housewives of Orange County are expected to return to Bravo for season 15 in mid-to-late 2020.
