John Kelly Feeling Much Better

from Don Caesar of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

“I feel very good,” he said. “I have been past it for a couple weeks.”

Kelly, 59, called the Blues’ last game before the NHL joined the global virus-fueled shutdown of almost all sports. That was on March 11, in Anaheim, Calif. He returned with the team to St. Louis the next day. Then the following day, a Friday, his health had declined to the point he headed to an urgent care facility. The diagnosis: “A virus that would pass,” Kelly said.

But his condition continued to deteriorate and he returned to the urgent care clinic that Monday.

“They did a chest X-ray and discovered my pneumonia and tested me for coronavirus,” Kelly said. “They gave me a breathing treatment there and sent me home with an inhaler and some antibiotics. That was the low point.”

He also was tested for coronavirus, but it took 11 days before he received word that he had tested positive.
