Hello everyone,

After discussing with Erika, we thought it would be best to find a mutual space to be able to update everyone on Jimmy. We want to eliminate as much miscommunication as possible, while also encouraging everyone to reach out in one space.
The outpouring of love and support the family has received is overwhelming and appreciated it. It is becoming a lot for Erika to try to keep up while also trying to keep things as normal as possible for the kids. If you want to send positive notes of encouragement, I urge you to use this platform because when Jimmy is off sedation and gets his phone back he will have full access to this and see all of the amazing support. ♥️

A rough rundown of what has happened:
December 30 Jimmy was diagnosed with “Walking pneumonia”
January 2nd Jimmy was admitted to the hospital with low oxygen saturation and he was positive with Covid-19.
The days since his hospitalization have been up and down. He has a pneumothorax, blood clots, and air pockets around his heart, neck and his lungs were/are severely inflamed. That is partially why the Vent was the best step at this point.
