Woman hospitalized with COVID-19 returns home to find husband dead of same disease


A Florida woman who was hospitalized for over a week with COVID-19 said she went home to what she described as a "nightmare" — her husband had died of the same disease while she was gone.

Lisa Steadman, of Winter Haven, about 50 miles southwest of Orlando, told NBC affiliate WFLA that her husband, Ron Steadman, was first diagnosed with COVID-19 in early August but that at the time it seemed no worse than a "bad cold."

But Steadman, 58, also came down with COVID-19 and fainted. She was rushed to the hospital, where she stayed for eight days. Ron Steadman, 55, stayed home to watch the dogs.

Lisa Steadman spent several days in a hospital recovering from COVID-19, and when she returned home, she discovered that her husband had died from complications from the same disease. Neither had been vaccinated.

While she was in the hospital, Steadman could not get in touch with her husband. She asked police to conduct a wellness check, and they said he was well.

But less than 48 hours later, Lisa returned home on Aug. 18 to find her husband dead in bed. The dogs, she said, were starving and near death.

Leave It to Beaver Alum Tony Dow Hospitalized with Pneumonia


Former Leave It to Beaver star Tony Dow is working through a case of pneumonia.

Dow, 76, was hospitalized with the illness on Thursday — after waiting more than 24 hours to get a bed due to COVID-19. His wife, Lauren Shulkind, first confirmed his diagnosis to TMZ.

On Monday, Dow's agent, Frank Bilotta, gave an update on the former television star's health.

"Tony has been diagnosed with pneumonia but is in good spirits and is doing well," Bilotta said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "He was up walking around yesterday and his doctors think he should be able to return home within the week."

Pneumonia inflames an infected individual's air sacs in one or both of their lungs, and it can also cause symptoms such as coughing with phlegm or pus. Cases can range from mild to life-threatening.
