Gary Shirley: My Mom Has Coronavirus!

Sad news from Anderson, Indiana this week.

And for once, it doesn’t have anything to do with Amber Portwood being a terrible person.

Gary Shirley, Amber’s ex-boyfriend and the father of her daughter, Leah, has just revealed some sad news about his family.

Yesterday, like so many other people, Gary hopped on social media to post a message about Mother’s Day.

But unfortunately, his message took a very tragic turn pretty quick.

“This Mother’s Day is a little hard because my mother is very sick,” he began. “A week ago she was diagnosed with Covid-19.”

He explained that “Her line of work put her at a higher risk since she was working in activities and house keeping at an assisted living facility.”

“My wife and I have been trying to help by dropping off food (curbside) so she could focus on getting rest,” he added.

“We haven’t hugged her in about 3 months & and we haven’t had her over inside our home for about 3 months. This has been extremely hard for all of us.”

He then revealed that his youngest daughter, Emilee, “has an immunodeficiency disorder where she gets sick easily,” so they’ve really been taking social distancing guidelines very seriously.

They’ve only gone out for supplies a few times, “however, I knew my mother would be exposed at some point due to her job which was very worrisome itself.”

“Now, with a confirmed case of covid-19 we are worried more and limited on what we can do to help.”

As for how she’s been handling the illness, Gary said that “She has good days and of course bad days like today.”

He also said that she and Jody, the man he always thought was his biological father but recently found out was not, live together, “and I knew it would only be a matter of time before he would get it, and of course …. I believe he has it now.”

“He has the symptoms, but hasn’t had the test yet.”

“So I will be dropping off breakfast in the morning on the porch and wishing her a Happy Mother’s Day while praying for her,” he wrote.

“All prayers are welcomed and much appreciated.”

He finished off his lengthy message with “Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful mothers and a BIG Happy Mother’s Day to my amazing wife.”

While it doesn’t sound like Gary’s mom is experiencing one of the mild cases of the virus, it also sounds like she’s not dangerously ill, either.

Hopefully she’ll recover soon, and hopefully not too long after that Gary will be able to visit.

We’re thinking nothing but good thoughts for the Shirley family!
