"There are still non-believers. I've made it through so much in my life; I don't want to die because of this — especially with a new daughter. I'm aware, and I'm concerned, and I'm cautious."

People reports that after Steve was diagnosed with COVID-19, his star daughter took to Instagram where she announced the sad news to fans. Coco let fans know that her “tough as an ox” dad needed their prayers to survive the pandemic.

My, tough as an ox dad, the one that never goes to the doctor, the one that doesn't even take tylenol for pain, the one that never EVER gets sick, where talking about the original Steve Austin (cuz thats his real name) is in the ICU requiring oxygen for #covid19 .. He is having trouble breathing and feels like he is being stabbed with pins throughout his body .. For all the people that say it cant happen to your family..think again ..Sending happy thoughts to my father and all the families that are dealing with it❤ also sending prayers to 2 of my aunts who also have covid seems they all got it at the same time We have a big family, in the 2nd photo is my dad with all his kids Thank you ArrowHead Hospital in AZ for attending to my dad!

Update on my Dad thats been batteling #covid19 .. My dad got ill on Father Day and was admited to the ICU that week because he having breathing problems.. They have since kept him for almost a month now.. I like to tell his story because my dad,amongs many others, thought Covid was a conspiracy and he was a non believer and never wore a mask.. This was all hitting too close to home when I for one have been obsessed with this whole #coronavirus thing since day one..watching day after day the news and TV programs for 5 months of people dying or becoming sick and not being able recover And personally Being so careful with my immediate family like teaching Chanel how to sanitize all day and always wearing a mask in public,even wearing gloves when I go to a grocery store. Anyway, my dad whose name is Steve Austin who is 63 healthy buff guy with absolutely no underlying conditions developed Covid pneumonia in both lungs, and from there couldn't breathe and needed to be put on a oxygen machine.Covid destroys your lungs and some people dont ever recover even when surviving this crazy virus. The first week my dad was in the hospital the nurses notified me to prepare my family for an emergency intubation and i got so scared cuz my dads wishes were to not be knocked out.(for those that dont know.They medically induce a coma and put you on a ventilator for an unknown period of time ..there is a high percentage of death once you get to that point.So this is when the power of a prayers shifted his downward spiral.In edition to the Bipap he was on (breathing machine)He was given plasma treatments and Tociuzumba (a promising new covid drug).But then another bump in the road came too when a lung started to collapse but recovered from that too..Everyday is baby steps and im excited to say today was his first day back home, but not completely out of the woods.He is teathered to a oxygen machine for who knows how long. All I do know is your prayers and "Get Well"wishes hepled me and my family through this tough time and I deeply appreciate that from the bottom of my heart ❤ (The first pic is recent & the other 2 from the past month, always handsome no matter what)
