Just days after the tragedy of losing her unborn baby, Lily Allen was rushed back to the hospital to be treated for a blood-poisoning condition.

Lily Allen tragically lost her baby last week and is now she’s battling a serious bacterial infection. According to her publicist, the singer, 25, was rushed back to a clinic on Friday (Nov. 5), and is currently being treated for septicemia. Despite the intensity of this blood infection, she is showing encouraging signs, and her publicist says she “is responding well to treatment and her condition continues to improve.”

What could have caused Lily to lose her baby?

Sources close to Lily say that she is extremely grateful for the number of supportive Tweets, emails and letters that fans have sent her during this devastating week. “Lily thanks everyone for their messages of support and again asks that she and partner Sam Cooper be left alone whilst she recovers,” her rep adds. Lily was six months pregnant and was expecting a boy when she lost the baby last week. We hope that she gets well soon!
