“The most prominent symptoms are my cough, night sweats and shortness of breathe,” he wrote. “Breathing is challenging, the best way to describe it is feeling like I only have access to 20% of my lungs. I can only imagine how people with pre-existing health conditions feel with this. I’ve been journaling throughout this and I’ll share some of those soon.”
Underwood went on to reveal the medication he’s taking.
“I’m currently on hydroxychloroquine, Z-Pak and last night the doctor prescribed an inhaler, also,” he explained. “I’m hopeful that they are starting to work! This morning was the first time that I’ve felt any real type of improvement since the beginning of this. Im hopeful that I’ve turned the corner and will be back to 100% soon. We are very lucky that all of this was manageable at home after getting the proper medicine.”
Underwood met Cassie while filming season 23 of The Bachelor. While graduate student nearly quit the show during the final weeks, the First Time author sent home the remaining contestants to pursue a relationship with Cassie and ended the show early. The twosome, who normally live in separate apartments in Los Angeles, have been together ever since.
