Greg Norman’s battle with COVID continued Sunday as the golf legend found himself back in the hospital after spending Christmas Day in the emergency room, then being released Saturday. Norman announced on Instagram that he tested positive for COVID and was in the hospital to go through a bamlanivimab antibody infusion.
The 65-year-old Norman said he was expecting to be released from the hospital later in the day Sunday. Bamlanivimab was authorized for emergency use by the FDA on November 9 and is for those “who are at high risk for progressing to severe COVID-19 and/or hospitalization,” according to the FDA.
Norman seems to think this treatment will help him get his body corrected so he can get back to normal.
“Want to thank the excellent Doctors RN’s and staff at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center for their incredible dedication and professionalism looking after and caring for patients in need in the face of having CoVid in getting this infusion. They have my utmost of respect. Also to all out there, please take this very very serious.
“If you get it, the variations and intensity of symptoms varies from person to person. I am fit and strong and have a high tolerance for pain but this virus kicked the crap out of me like nothing I have ever experienced before. Muscle and joint pain on another level. Headaches that feel like a chisel going through your head scrapping little bits off each time, fever, muscles that just did not want to work like yesterday walking my dog Apollo my quads and hip flexors just did not want to work due to fatigue.
“Then my taste failed where beer tastes bad and wine the same. And finally at times struggling with memory of names and things. Then there is irritation. So please take care. And for those doubters out there, do not judge or cast unwarranted comments and opinions I would not anyone, even you, to experience this hideous virus. So I ask, do what is right, not just for you, but your family friends co-workers and other people around. I am luckier than most and for that I am thankful and blessed.
“Also the world is blessed science has acted and performed like never before in getting a vaccine/s for all to eventually receive. Thank you to those people. We need to great our world back in healthy harmony so we can get healthy economically and prosperously with millions and millions people getting their lives back. God bless those infected and who may fall unwittingly to this virus. My prayers and thoughts go out to you all. Once out of here today back to quarantine.”
