UPDATE (March 31, 2020, 7:00 p.m.): On Monday, March 30, Jim took to Instagram Stories to offer an update on his health (embed below), noting that he was "feeling better today" and shared that he was doing "a little garage cleanup" after taking a test after experiencing several symptoms associated with COVID-19 over the weekend. He had yet to share the results of those tests as of press time.
The original story continues below.
Jim Edmonds went to the hospital to get tested for coronavirus after experiencing several symptoms associated with COVID-19. The former Real Housewives of Orange County husband, who split from ex Meghan King Edmonds last year, announced that he’s still awaiting the results of the test on Instagram on March 28.
Jim documented his experience in a series of Instagram Stories, sharing a photo of himself wearing a mask while in the emergency room. “"Held off as long as I could. I thought I was tough enough to get through. This virus is no joke. #gethealthy,” he wrote alongside one photo.
The former MLB player also revealed that he was undergoing a chest x-ray. “No confirmation on the virus yet,” he wrote in a follow-up message. “Just waiting to find out if I have been infected or just super sick.” He also added that he’s “not taking any chances because it is so hard to get tested by the rules of the CDC.”
After getting released from the hospital later that same day, Jim again took to Instagram to provide an update, explaining that the results of his coronavirus test are still pending, but that he had already tested positive for pneumonia, which he had never had before.
"Trying to rest up and get better. Just wanted to thank everyone for their wishes," he said.
Edmonds shares twin boys Hart and Hayes and daughter Aspen, with Meghan, whom he split from last year after five years. The kids have been self-quarantining at their mother’s California home, as she previously confirmed on Instagram.
