Jeremih is back home and on his way to better health, after his battle with COVID-19.
During a recent interview, Jeremih opened up about his stay in ICU. He shared that all of his organs became inflamed. He says, “what I can say is, man, it definitely is real,” Jeremih said. “I didn’t take it for granted. And truth be told, this was kinda like … I’m a living, walking testimony. To let y’all know, I was really down bad for the last month and a half. While I was in there, you know, I don’t even remember the day I went in. That’s how messed up I was.”
He continued, “I had the tube down my throat for about a week and a half,” he said. “I was really, like, in a dream and I ain’t gonna lie, I woke up about two times and all I remember is just seeing a white light … What I ended up having—and I don’t mind sharing it because now, you know, I’m here—it was called a [multisystem] inflammatory syndrome. MIS. Which is a rare case of, you know, cause and effect of [COVID-19]. My whole insides, all my organs, became inflamed. It was going down.”
He shared that the recovery process has been a challenge as well.
“I had to learn how to walk again, eat, all that,” Jeremih said. “I look at it as kind of somewhat of a blessing now, as crazy as it might sound,” he said. “I needed to sit down. I needed to take a break.”
Please continue to keep Jeremih in your prayers. Check out the interview below.
