Khloe Kardashian staph infection

Khloe Kardashian is keeping her distance from Lamar Odom — it was not the best time to be down with an illness, most especially if your own husband is recuperating in a hospital.

Kardashian is currently under the weather with staph infection, and it has prevented her from taking trips to the hospital to visit her estranged husband Lamar Odom.

Kardashian already had to cancel a book signing event to be able to have complete rest. The Keeping up with the Kardashians reality TV show star is still trying to be 100% healthy before she pays her husband a visit.

A source was quoted as saying, “She’s doing a little bit better, but no one can say when she will be able to visit [Lamar] considering she can’t until she’s fully healed.”

Staphylococal infection or Staph infection is a group of infections caused by the bacterium Staphylococcus. Staph bacteria can cause a wide range of infections. It may be a minor skin infection like boils, to a more serious one like infections of the heart, blood, or lungs.

Another source said that Khloe is still taking on antibiotics to fight the infection. The said illness has prevented her from leaving the house much. As much as Khloe wants to see Lamar, she just can’t.

Due to the infection, Kardashian had to miss attending the 2015 American Music Awards, as well as Sean “Diddy” Combs’ party where most of her family were present.

“I appreciate all of your prayers, well wishes, and love being sent my way. I’ll be better soon.”

She posted a message on her Twitter account, saying “I am under great care and receive tons of love. This Staph infection is no joke. This one on me was exacerbated by stress which is not a great combination.”

It was her sister Kim who recently gave updated to the people about Lamar’s condition. According to Kim, Odom is on his way to recovery but there is still too much healing to do in the coming months.

“He’s here and alive. But to say it’s not a long road and to say he’s fully better is not the truth either,”

“Lamar is family, and he’ll always be family. We’ll always do what we can to help take care of him, and protect him, and be there for him.”
