What prompted the post was that many fans were concerned with how Evans was doing. Due to complications with the coronavirus, Evans almost had to have both of her legs amputated.
Evans was originally admitted into the hospital after a horseback riding accident, but she became infected with the coronavirus during her stay at the hospital.
On June 8, Simon gave an update on Evans’ health on Facebook. He wrote, “She contracted COVID-19 while there 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. She had mild symptoms – fever, aches, a cough and the blood clots. 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! 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! She just wants to continue to test negative on COVID19 before she can go home and get the rest she so needs!!!”
