Tammin Sursok decided to take to social media to emotionally reveal the fact that her husband, Sean McEwen, is currently battling COVID-19.
The “Pretty Little Liars” star posted on Instagram Wednesday and detailed what her husband was seemingly dealing with as his body fought off the virus.
Through detailing the ordeal, Sursok painted a grim picture of the true effects the virus can have on a person, and said there have been many “scary” moments since he was confirmed to be positive.
“My husband has Covid. And I’m scared,” the actress captioned a selfie shared yesterday to fans. “Today I’m not as scared as yesterday but yesterday I felt very out of control. It was rough and touch and go. All the hospitals are full and his fever of 103 wouldn’t break for days and it got to a very scary place.”
Sursok went on to mention that both her and her daugher have tested negative for the virus twice as they began isolating from her husband while he fights his infection.
“We have been quarantining and following all recommendations and guidelines. We have been in the same place in Austin for two months now. Haven’t seen friends and family, haven’t eaten out, p is homeschooled,” she described the family’s quarantine measures by saying. “The only place we could have got it is the grocery store bc we haven’t been near anyone and the whole family is always masked.”
The star then doubled down on her claims by maintaining that the virus is very real and very dangerous.
‘COVID Is Real’
“Covid is real. It’s scary and I now see it firsthand,” she emotionally explained.
“I’ve been really scared and in a dark place and I’m writing this to say I’m struggling and I love you all and this community. Thank you for listening. We are in this together. We are. I promise you. Please wear a mask for yourself for other people. This is not something you want to get. Thank you for being here. You light up my life. Always.”
Following that initial post, Sursok took to her Instagram story as well to further elaborate on her husband’s condition, telling fans that although his temperature has been dropping she is ridiculously concerned for his safety.
“I’ve been so strong for the kids and for him for so many days, over a week,” she said of her efforts to keep it all together. “I even feel bad if this is the wrong way do to it, because I think we feel ashamed to feel pain and be scared because we feel like we always have to be so strong all the time. We see on social media people just killing it, and everything is great, and everything is perfect, but life isn’t like that, for me, for anyone.”
