During a new episode of The Dr. Oz Show, the 43-year-old former reality star revealed he was almost put on a ventilator while in the hospital battling the virus.
“I had a really bad COVID pneumonia based upon my numbers,” Jon
He continued, “If my urinals were full, I had to stand up and use the bathroom, I would fear it because I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I’m going to pass out. I can’t breathe.’ I called the nurse and I felt guilty calling the nurse all the time. Like, ‘Can you just help me get this? Can you help me do that?’ Everything, you feel like an invalid.”
Jon said that it was his health’s quick decline that really took him by surprise.
“You go from perfectly healthy one week to you can’t do anything the next week,” Jon said. “It was so weird. It’s still weird now.”
