Jim, 49, was diagnosed with the lung infection on Saturday, and is now back from the hospital and waiting to hear the results after getting tested for coronavirus.
Taking to his Instagram Stories, Jim said: "I'm at home now. I got out of the emergency room and they're waiting for tests.
"I did get tested for pneumonia which was positive and I've never had that before so I'm trying to rest up and get better."
He went on: "Just wanted to thank everyone for their wishes – my phone's been blowing up via text and on Instagram. All you close friends, thank you so much for reaching out."
Jim admitted, "I'm doing the best I can right now. I'm not feeling so hot," and promised to keep fans updated.
The former reality star was hospitalized on Saturday and tests were done to see if he has COVID-19.
He captioned a photo wearing a mask in a hospital bed: “Held off as long as I could. I thought I was tough enough to get through.
“This virus is no joke #gethealthy.”
He then revealed he is “waiting” on tests and posted a photo of an X-ray machine.
The former baseball star continued: “No confirmation on virus yet. Just waiting to find out if I have been infected or just super sick.”
He even joked: “PS I didn’t know the swab could go that far in someone’s nose."
The hospitalization comes after ex-wife Meghan, 35, revealed she is having a tough time caring for their three children, Aspen, 3, and twins Hayes and Hart, 21 months, while in coronavirus quarantine.
She posted earlier this week that she is “hanging in there” and does whatever she can to stop her kids from “screaming and crying.”
She wrote on Instagram: “Quarantine day (??) and mama’s still hangin’ in there!
“I get by with a little help from my friends, AKA, a hydrating face mask and a glass of red wine (that I’m hiding in my @disneyjunior cup).”
She continued: “I’ve been getting a lottt of messages from people saying ‘omg I don’t know how you do it’ or ‘you make single mom life look easy!’
“… well… it’s NOT and I don’t want to portray the idea that I’m breezing through this weird and crazy time.”
She added that while she’s “blessed” to share extra time with them, it has been “tough.”
She continued: “There are times where I have to depend on screen time more than I would like to or give the kids snacks that I usually wouldn’t just to get them to stop screaming or crying.”
The former Real Housewives of Orange County star admitted that she is also focusing on herself by “staying on top of her health game” and treating herself to “face masks.”
She ended the post with: “After talking with some of my friends in our #momsquad group, we realized how many people probably think our lives are SO easy right now so we all wanted to come together and share what each of us are doing to get through our days, whether it’s by showing some of our at-home essentials or sharing the best way to #treatyourself at home.”
Fortunately, Jim and Meghan took the advice of their pediatrician who advised them to let the children stay where they were when the lockdown started.
She revealed: “They’re going to stay with me until this passes. Stay safe guys.”
