Tori Kelly posted an update on her health, after she was hospitalized over the weekend in serious condition with blood clots and other complications.
Tori, 31, shared a handwritten note posted to Instagram: “As you may have heard, I’m dealing with some unexpected health challenges. It’s been a scary few days, but I can feel your prayers and can’t stop thinking about you. I’m feeling stronger now and hopeful, but unfortunately, there are still some things to uncover. I’m so grateful for the amazing doctors and nurses who have been looking after me … Of course, I’m heartbroken about all of the things I had planned for this week of releasing my EP, but I know my health must come first. Until I see you again, I still want you to enjoy a project that represents the happy place I’ve been in the last few years. I won’t let this hurdle prevent the music from yours on Friday! I love you all so much, and I am truly overwhelmed by all of the love and care I have received. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!” Tori captioned the post “Deuteronomy 31:8,” a Bible verse that reads, “It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”
Tori was dining with friends at a restaurant in L.A. when her heart started to beat quickly and she passed out, according to TMZ, who first reported the story. Tori was admitted to the ICU at Cedars-Sinai hospital, where doctors reportedly discovered blood clots in her legs and lungs.
