As her castmates remain in production on the upcoming 15th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon described her symptoms and the way she and her kids, including 19-year-old Sophie and 16-year-old Stella and Adeline, have been treating them before explaining how they have been self-isolating at home and discussing her preexisting lung damage.
“We’ve been really fortunate in that the symptoms have been pretty minor,” Shannon began to her fans and followers on July 28.
As she chatted with her followers, Shannon revealed she was getting a vitamin C IV drip from a nurse at her home before sharing that she had been told that the drips “help you get over [COVID-19].”
Shannon then said that she and her children each enjoy time outside daily while also self-isolating inside their rental home.
“What I try and do is I have everybody come outside at separate times and sit outside for like, 20 to 30 minutes a day just to get some sun,” she revealed. “We all have designated seats here so we’re not even sitting close to where another person may be sitting later on. [We’re] just trying to be super, super careful.”
In addition to revealing that she had both a fever and a headache, the RHOC star said that her children were sick for just three or four days.
“[They were] pretty asymptomatic after that. I just have one daughter that can’t taste or smell but they are pretty good,” Shannon confirmed.
Continuing on, Shannon said she was grateful that the coronavirus hadn’t attacked her lungs in the way she expected while also noting that she felt like she had been “hit by a truck” during the early days of her health battle.
“I’m just grateful with this lung damage that this [COVID-19] hasn’t really gone into my lungs,” she told her online audience. “I thought that would for sure that would happen. I’m using my nebulizer twice a day as a preventive but my cough isn’t much worse than it normally is.”
No word yet on when The Real Housewives of Orange County season 15 will begin airing on Bravo.
