She wrote in a post on Twitter: “I was down with severe stomach infection and 103 fever since last afternoon. I was panicking as I have a flight to take today which is incredibly a long way down had already gave up hopes that I could make it anymore, but I am thankful that my Doctor came to my rescue and with proper medication and a proper diet i see hopes of not cancelling my trip anymore.”
