“Days Of Our Lives” actress Judi Evans lost legs due to COVID – Deadline


” Thank you!! Your love, prayers and support have meant the world to me !! ”This was the message posted on Facebook Tuesday evening on behalf of Days of our lives actress Judi Evans. In the post, a photo shows a smiling but hospitalized Evans holding a note with the message on it.

The soap star’s rating came in response to a wave of good wishes from fans.

According to his representative, Evans was admitted to the hospital after a riding accident and, during her stay, she was infected with COVID-19.

From its representative, Howie Tiger Simon:

I spoke to Judi on Sunday and she is still in the hospital – 23 days now and it counts. She contracted COVID-19 during her stay and she had what are called COVID blood clots in her legs and she almost had both legs amputated twice.

She had mild symptoms – fever, body aches, cough, and blood clots. On top of that, when she went to surgery on one of her legs, they forgot to numb her leg and cut her leg when she was fully (conscious) without numbing the area! However, speaking to her on Sunday, she was in a good mood and returned to Judi’s “humor” despite all these spiraling turns. She said that she appreciated all the prayers for her and that they had helped her mentally, physically and spiritually! She just wants to continue testing negative on COVID19 before she can go home and get the rest she so badly needs !!!

Evans is a regular at Days of our lives since 1986. She also appeared on Another world as the world turns and The guiding light. She won an Emmy Daytime for outstanding supporting actress in a daytime drama series for The guiding light.
