He was at home for the first few days quarantined and isolated in our home, trying to beat it at home. When you have got somebody with COVID in your house, symptomatic, it’s like all you do all day … take his temperature, take the oxygen level, feed him, wipe everything down. Make sure he’s okay. Feed him again.
You’re trying to do all of this without exposing yourself. It is manic. It is all-consuming. And he was getting worse. So we made the decision to take him into the hospital for evaluation, and he had pneumonia, small pneumonia … he was lethargic.”
