Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers has a news update to report on the extremely serious health problems of Judi Evans, who has portrayed both Adrienne Kiriakis and Bonnie Lockhart on the NBC soap. As you might remember, the Emmy-winning actress recently took a fall from her horse and was hospitalized for serious injuries associated with the fall.
But then after her hospitalization, it was revealed that Judi also had a pulmonary embolism, or blood clot in her lungs. This is, of course, a very serious condition that can lead to sudden death, so it was something that her treatment team was taking seriously.
Well, Judi’s publicist Howie Simon has recently informed Judi’s fans with a briefing on Facebook with some further updates about Judi’s condition, and things sound like they are remaining serious, as he reported that Judi contracted COVID-19 while she was in the hospital.
“Judi contracted COVID-19 while in the hospital, and she had what is known as the COVID blood clots in her legs, and she nearly had both legs amputated on two different occasions,” Mr. Simon said. “She had mild symptoms – fever, aches, a cough, and the blood clots.”
And to add to the alarming news, Mr. Simon reported that a serious mistake was made in Judi’s care. “On top of everything, when she went into surgery on one of her legs, they forgot to numb the leg and cut into her leg when she was fully conscious, with no numbing of the area,” Mr, Simon said.
That sounds absolutely terrible for Judi, but fortunately, Mr. Simon ended his update on a more positive note.
Judi Evans’ rep said: “However, speaking to her on Sunday, she was in good spirits and back to Judi ‘humor’ despite all these spiraling turn of events. She has said she appreciates all the prayers for her, and they’ve helped her mentally, physically, and spiritually.”
Mr. Simon continued: “She just wants to continue to test negative on COVID-19 before she can go home and get the rest she so needs!!!”
Our thoughts and best wishes for a full and speedy recovery go out to Judi at this time. Here’s hoping that she will be out of the hospital soon and on her way to good health.
