Ric Flair says his wife, Wendy Barlow, is doing much better now after testing positive for COVID-19.
Flair was a recent guest on the Hall Of Fame podcast with Booker T and Brad Gilmore and said that Wendy’s health was improving after he recently confirmed she tested positive for COVID-19.
“She’s doing great, much better. Not 100% but she’s doing much better. It’s been over three weeks now, it was a nightmare. All of a sudden, it just came on her, and of course, you backtrack and figure out where it came from. She was really sick,” Flair said. “I had to take her to the hospital twice for IV once and then just to make sure she was OK. You never know. Of course, they released her both times after keeping her for a couple of hours. You can’t be careful enough.”
Last week, Flair confirmed to the New York Post that his wife had the coronavirus but denied that he tested positive himself. He said that they’ve been able to distance themselves while she recovers due to the size of their house, but it’s still been a rough situation for them.
“She’s upstairs. The house is pretty big, which is nice, and she’s way upstairs. She’s isolated and I don’t think she needs to come downstairs but once in the last couple of days for the first time. Not down here to see me just down the stairs to the front door, you know what I mean? So even though they say two weeks and this has been three, you just never know, right?”
Flair says he never imagined something like this in his lifetime and that people his age just want to know that things will be OK for their kids and grandkids. He said it’s a different time and people just need to hope for the best with the situation.
