Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that Judi Evans, who has portrayed both Adrienne Kiriakis and Bonnie Lockhart on the NBC soap, recently spoke with Good Morning America. The interview, which took place on Monday, June 9, was the first time that we’ve seen Judi since her May 21st horseback riding accident that resulted in severe injuries.
As CDL has reported, Judi was immediately hospitalized after her accident and was quite battered and bruised. And to make matters worse, it was subsequently discovered that Judi had a pulmonary embolism, or a blood clot or clots in her lungs – which are immediately life threatening. These clots generally begin in one’s leg and migrate to the lungs.
Well, then news broke via Judi’s publicist that Judi had ongoing blood clots in her legs and had undergone surgery to deal with them, and that she had tested positive for COVID-19 while in the hospital. COVID-19 is known for causing blood clots.
This morning, Judi shed a little more light on her battle with COVID-19 when she spoke to Good Morning America from her hospital bed. “My fever started spiking. I said [to the doctors] ‘You know, can we test me for COVID’ because they had taken me down a few times for tests without a mask on. They did, and it came back positive.”
And all of this is on top of a hospital blunder that Judi had to deal with during her ordeal. Judi’s publicist Howie Simon said that her surgery to deal with the blood clots in her legs was problematic.
“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 while she was fully conscious with no numbing of the area!”
Our thoughts go out to Judi during this time. It was certainly great to see Judi speaking to Good Morning America, and she’s got plenty of fans who are sending their love and well-wishes as she battles the virus, the blood clots, and her other health issues.
We wish Judi all the best for a speedy and complete recovery. Stay tuned to DOOL and remember to keep CDL bookmarked for the latest Days of Our Lives spoilers, daily recaps, and news.
