Fans are happy to know that Patrick Reed is back home and recovering after a nasty bout with bilateral pneumonia that left him in the hospital.
Reed was admitted to a hospital in Houston on August 20th, 2021 with bilateral pneumonia, also known as double pneumonia, which is a type of pneumonia that affects both lungs at once. This type of pneumonia can be a complication of COVID-19, but in Reed’s case there has been no mention of it being associated with COVID.
Reed’s pneumonia forced him to withdraw from the BMW Championship, the Wyndham Championship, and the Northern Trust and he still doesn’t know when he’ll be well enough to get back out on the golf course, but right now he’s not worrying about that. Reed had this to say about his recovery process:
“It’s great to be back home with the family, kids and Justine [Reed’s wife]. It makes the recovery process so much better. I’ve been focusing on my health and my family and Justine. You don’t realize how special you have it until something like this happens and I’m so happy just to be back recovering with them. I wish everyone a safe and healthy week and can’t wait to be back at it.”
Patrick Reed is an incredible golfer and we’re wishing him a speedy recovery so he can get back into competition soon, but in the meantime it’s good to know he has such a positive outlook and is enjoying time with his family.
