Lily Allen suffers septicemia

British singer Lily Allen has been hospitalized for septicemia, a form of blood poisoning, mere days after suffering a miscarriage.

A source close to Allen and her partner Sam Cooper told the Daily Mail, "Lily had been recuperating at home with Sam and her family, but she has been taken back to hospital and is getting the best care possible at the moment.

"Everyone is extremely concerned, but she is in the best place and luckily she was admitted quickly."

Septicemia is a very dangerous blood infection that can kill within hours if not treated. Both former Bee Gee Maurice Gibb and Superman actor Christopher Reeve died of the illness.

A rep for the singer said, "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."

Allen is recovering, slowly but surely. She took to Twitter to assure her fans she's okay. "I'm still very sick but the messages are helping me to be stronger. Thank you x x (sic)"
