Ever since Khloe Kardashian was struck with a staph infection, fans have been worried about the ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star’s health. Her sister, Kourtney Kardashian, gave an update on Khloe’s condition, saying that despite the illness, Koko’s doing ‘okay.’
Poor Khloe Kardashian! While the 31-year-old was busy tending to Lamar Odom, 36, in the hospital, she ended up getting sick herself! As Khloe struggles to get over her sudden staph infection, Kourtney Kardashian, 36, has the latest on Khloe’s progress — and the news is good!
While Kourtney attended the Variety & Women’s Wear Daily inaugural Stylemakers luncheon on Nov. 19, she let everyone know how Khloe was doing. “She’s good,” she told E! News. “She’s OK. She’s not feeling well, but she’s OK.” Awww. Poor Khloe! At least Kourtney was looking fine, especially after news that her ex, Scott Disick, is out of rehab.
Khloe has been resting ever since she first contracted an “unknown illness.” Khloe had to cancel her book signing tour, as the Strong Looks Better Naked author was told by her doctors to “lay low.” Sadly, it turned out Khloe had a staph infection! While Khloe rests up, her nieces, Penelope Disick and North West, have helped their aunt out by promoting her book. You can get your own copy of Khloe’s book RIGHT HERE.
She reportedly contracted the serious disease at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, where Lamar is currently being treated. She reportedly has an “incredibly painful” lesion on her lower leg, and has been dealing with a high fever and swollen glands.
Even more painful than the disease — Khloe has been forced from Lamar’s side. It’s for the best of both Khloe as her husband, and Dr. Barry M. Rose EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com that Khloe could pass her infection onto Lamar. “oing back to the hospital should not occur until the infection is brought under control,” Dr. Barry said.
Of course, Khloe is trying to take this setback in stride, but she is reportedly “frustrated” over this infection and how it’s thrown a wrench into her plans. She wanted to take care of Lamar and go on her book tour, but the stress just made her condition worse. She’s reportedly on antibiotics and being closely monitored by her doctor.
Get better soon, Khloe! HollywoodLifers — leave your own well wishes for Khloe below.
