Amy Klobuchar: My Husband is in the hospital with coronavirus



I have news that many Americans are facing right now: my husband John has the coronavirus. We just got the test results at 7 a.m. this morning. While I cannot see him and he is of course cut off from all visitors, our daughter Abigail and I are constantly calling and texting and emailing. We love him very much and pray for his recovery. He is exhausted and sick but a very strong and resilient person.

John started to feel sick when I was in Minnesota and he was in Washington D.C. and like so many others who have had the disease, he thought it was just a cold. Yet he immediately quarantined himself just in case and stopped going to his job teaching in Baltimore. He kept having a temperature and a bad, bad cough and when he started coughing up blood he got a test and a chest X-ray and they checked him into a hospital in Virginia because of a variety of things including very low oxygen levels which havenít really improved. He now has pneumonia and is on oxygen but not a ventilator.

4. That is 2 times now in the last few weeks

that Amy has made me cry. She's been a strong, wonderful woman in the senate questioning Kavanaugh and being personally attacked by him, running for president right up to the very end. She's been one of those voices of truth, honor, and sanity. Damn. I hope the very best for her husband and for their family. This is so damn painful.

I have only love, hope, and gratitude for our wonderful Democrats.

Amy

6. On Rachel last night telling her story.

She looked haggard, but still working for us. When she spoke of her situation she was nearly in tears. So was I.
