RIP Tom Dempsey dead of Covid virus
Former saints PK famous for his partially amputated foot. Held NFL record for longest fg for many years.

RIP. God bless Tom Dempsey. I was 12 years old but I was in the stadium when he kicked his field goal.

Read somebody died in England, days after having been discharged as cured. They were 80, I believe.

Spain just discharged a 101 year old as cured, yesterday. Hope he's the real deal.

Not amputated. He was born without toes or fingers on his right feet and hand.

Here it is (I think)

It sounded like his fever had gone but that he wasn't doing especially well.

quote:

The former Saints placekicker tested positive for COVID-19 on March 26 after being taken to a hospital the day before because he had exhibited symptoms, his family told Nola.com.

Tom then returned to his apartment at the Lambeth House, his daughter, Ashley Dempsey, told the outlet, and was given medication.

On Tuesday of this week, he woke up with no fever, giving the family hope that Ashley said ended up being premature.

“We thought we were out of the woods with the no fever,” she said. “It was wishful thinking.”

Tom’s appetite left with the fever, and his oxygen levels dropped Wednesday morning, Ashley told Nola.com.

The development in his condition prompted Ashley and the rest of the Dempsey family to hire a hospice care agency to take care of Tom at the Lambeth House. The agency was able to provide oxygen equipment, and Tom’s oxygen levels had improved by Wednesday afternoon, Ashley said.


RIP Mr Dempsey. Thanks for the memories.

re: RIP Tom Dempsey dead of Covid virus
I'm no doctor but that's an odd set of circumstances

Also, why wasn't he removed from the Lambeth when the outbreak first hit? Or does his timeline mean he was already infected?
