Dean McDermott has recently shared his scary experience with COVID-19.

Posting a picture of himself playing hockey on Instagram on Saturday, the 55-year-old Pretty Hard Cases actor wrote, “This is the first place I’m going once I get over COVID!!”

He said, “I’ve got to be honest, this scared the s— out of me. My breathing was so compromised I thought I was going to be put on a ventilator. Slowly turning the corner to recovery. Be safe out there.”

McDermott has been speaking about his health issues, revealing that he was “sick as a dog” with pneumonia before sharing his experience with COVID.

Over a week ago on New Year’s Day, McDermott took to social media again to reveal he had pneumonia. In a video recorded from bed, he said, “I am sick as a dog with pneumonia but I’m not going to let that dampen my spirits.”

He managed to smile as he wished his fans a happy 2022. He said, “Wishing everybody much much love and happiness and success in the new year. Health, wealth and prosperity.”

Last week, McDermott’s wife, Tori Spelling, revealed on Instagram that she and her entire family have been battling the illness. She said everyone has “varying degrees of symptoms.”

She wrote, “Our entire family has COVID. Yes, every single member got it. I was last to be symptomatic. We all were praying it was just a bad winter cold. But it wasn’t.”

“Nothing is worse than wanting to care for your little ones but feeling so sick you can barely function yourself,” Spelling continued. “I feel useless as a parent. Devastated. A mom is supposed to take care of their kiddos when sick. That’s how it works.” “But, we are all getting thru this together. I know we aren’t alone.”
