Pink details the battle against his family’s coronavirus


Pink’s life has been a “roller coaster” for the past three weeks as she and her 3-year-old son Jameson recover from COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus.

The singer spoke Sunday in a live Instagram video chat with author and yoga teacher Jen Pastiloff which was aimed at raising funds for the On Being Human 2020 COVID-19 food drive.

“There have been many nights when I cried, and I have never prayed more in my life,” said the singer, describing what Jameson went through.

“At one point, I heard myself say, ‘I thought they promised us that our children would be fine. “And it’s not guaranteed. No one is immune to this. “

Pink described the litany of symptoms that Jameson had felt: “He had a fever for three weeks and diarrhea, then constipation, then pale and listless and lethargic vomiting and all the things that scare you as mum. “

Two weeks ago, my three-year-old son Jameson and I were experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I became positive. My family was already at home and we have continued to do so for the past two weeks following our doctor’s instructions. Just a few days ago, we had a new test and luckily we were negative. It is an absolute travesty and a failure of our government not to make the tests more accessible. This disease is serious and real. People need to know that the disease affects young and old, healthy and unhealthy, the rich and the poor, and we need to make testing free and more widely available to protect our children, families, friends and our communities. In an effort to support health professionals who fight on the front lines every day, I donate $ 500,000 to the Temple Emergency Hospital Fund in Philadelphia in honor of my mother, Judy Moore, who worked for 18 years in cardiomyopathy and the heart. Transplant center. In addition, I am donating $ 500,000 to the Mayor of the City of Los Angeles emergency crisis fund COVID-19. THANK YOU to all of our healthcare professionals and to those around the world who work so hard to protect our loved ones. You are our heroes! These next two weeks are crucial: stay home. Please. Stay. Home.❤️

Jameson’s fever was still 100 degrees on Sunday, said Pink. He told his mom that the worst of it was not to see his mom crying but rather “the prune juice” that he had been given.

Pink announced Saturday that she and Jameson started showing symptoms of COVID-19 two weeks ago. It has been tested positive.

“My family was already at home and we have continued to do so for the past two weeks following our doctor’s instructions,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “Just a few days ago, we were retested and luckily we are negative. “

While her husband and 7-year-old daughter Willow did not fall ill, Pink also found herself on a roller coaster, although different from that of her son.

“It really was top to bottom, and I’ve been on nebulizers for the first time in 30 years,” said the singer, who suffers from asthma.

Lightening the mood, Pink noted that her husband had a new idea to get the city virus out.

“Carey keeps telling me … I should just scare her with whiskey,” she said.

On Monday, the On Being Human 2020 effort raised nearly 20% of its $ 250,000 goal. The GoFundMe campaign aims to give $ 100 grocery gift cards to families who have been particularly affected by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
