conversation with her friend, author, and yoga instructor, Jen Pastiloff on April 5, she opened up about the "roller coaster" life she had for the last three weeks. Both the singer and Jameson tested positive from the dreaded coronavirus. The talk was meant to raise donations for "On Being Human 2020" food drive called "Chat and Feed" series.
P!nk went on to tell she had been "really, really sick," but her 3-year-old son who had the worst of it. She disclosed having many nights "where I've cried and I've never prayed more in my life."
She realized during her personal journey that anyone can get the illness, and no one is safe from the coronavirus. And that goes the same for kids. The singer-songwriter kept a journal of symptoms that both of them underwent. Jameson, she said, still had a 100-degree fever even after three weeks. She detailed the other symptoms his son had, apart from the recurring fever - diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, paleness, listless, lethargic - and "all the things that scare the bejesus out of you as a mama." P!nk revealed further, "It's been a different roller coaster for both of us."
"Just Give Me a Reason" singer, who has asthma, was on nebulizers for the first time in 30 years. She admitted that "it got really, really scary, I'm not gonna lie." It came to a point that just when she thought she got better, something else happens.
P!nk, 40, was thankful that she had a reason to put on better clothes and make up for the interview, which she has not done for three weeks.
On her Instagram post on April 4, P!nk disclosed that she and her son started feeling the coronavirus symptoms two weeks ago. Their primary care doctor had access to tests, and she was found to be positive with COVID-19. She shared that at that time, their family was quarantined at home. They continued with the self-isolation for the next two weeks following the doctor's instructions. The singer and Jameson were soon retested, and the tests came in negative.
Fortunately, P!nk's husband, Carey Hart, and their daughter, 7-year-old Willow, did not get the sickness.
P!nk expressed her disappointment in how the government had not made testing widely accessible, considering the coronavirus is serious and real. She wanted to let people know that COVID-19 can affect anybody regardless of age, health and economic status. She stressed the need to make testing free-of-charge and to make it easier to be accessed by the public.
She supported the healthcare professionals and workers by donating half-a-million dollars to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia. She particularly selected this hospital in honor of her mother, Judy Moore, who used to work there for 18 years in the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Transplant Center.
Another $500,000 was donated by P!nk to the Mayor's Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund of the City of Los Angeles. She extended her gratitude to all those involved in health care around the world for their hard work and dedication in caring for the sick. She called them heroes.
