“It’s 6 a.m. and my blood sugar decided to bottom out and I tried very hard waking Josh up to get me food and he wouldn’t budge,” Mackenzie wrote on her Facebook page on Oct. 21.
She later updated that she managed to get herself something to eat. “Ehh so I just crawled to the kitchen and made a bowl of cereal spilling stuff everywhere from being so week [sic],” she wrote on Facebook.
“She is fine now. She just needs to make sure she keeps her blood sugar up,” a source close to Mackenzie told Radar Online.
