British pop star Lily Allen was admitted to the hospital on Saturday. According to her reps she is suffering from Septicemia, also known as blood poisoning.
Allen’s late term miscarriage came at nearly six months pregnant and occurred two years after her last miscarriage.
According to The Sun Allen was rushed to the hospital after complaining of stomach pains but doctors were unable to save her premature baby, doctors then diagnosed her with septicemia.
The disease which involves bacteria in the blood stream can lead to fevers, chills, rapid breathing and an increased heart rate and possibly death if left untreated.
According to Allen’s PR reps she’s reacting well to treatments:
“Lily Allen is back in hospital, where she is being treated for septicamia.
“She is responding well to treatment and her condition continues to improve. Lily thanks everyone for their messages of support and again asks that she and partner Sam Cooper be left alone whilst she recovers.”
Earlier in the week Allen told her fans via Twitter that she wasn’t feeling well:
“I’m still very sick but the messages are helping me to be stronger. Thank you xx.”
Best of luck to Lily as she begins the recovery process.
