When the pair had been sick for about three weeks, he said he felt pretty good going shopping for groceries in April, but left his feet on her back home.
“It was the worst 10 days of my life,” Cross said. “And I couldn’t walk, could barely move. And so it was the darkest of times for me, you know? It was really touching and hard.”
“I’m not a big celebrity, but it’s important for people to know that you can get this disease,” said the Grammy winner, best known for hits including “Selling” and “Ride Like the Wind.”
“And so, I felt it was my responsibility to share with those people: ‘Look, this is a big deal. Like you have to wear your mask,'” he said. “You have to take care of each other. Because, you know, this can happen to you.”
Cross said he constantly struggles to recover and said both his speech and memory have been affected and he has made the transition to walking with a cane after using a wheelchair.
