Ashley Park recovering from septic shock

Ashley Park, star of Joy Ride and “Emily in Paris,” is recovering from septic shock.

According to Playbill, Park was hospitalized after a case of tonsillitis developed into critical septic shock. She detailed her illness and recovery process on Instagram.

“As I sit here processing and recovering from the first few weeks of 2024, the only word I can think of is grateful. While on holiday in December into New Years, what started as tonsillitis spiraled into critical septic shock, which infected and affected several of my organs. I am grateful that my health has improved despite what we had initially been told,” Park wrote on Instagram.

Park also thanked her boyfriend and “Emily in Paris” co-star Paul Forman for supporting her every step of the way.

“You calmed my fears and held me through ambulances, three foreign hospitals, a week in the ICU, scary ERs, countless scans and tests and injections, excruciating pain, and so much confusion all while we were alone on the other side of the world far from those we know. I love you Paul. More than I can ever say,” she wrote.

According to CNN, the Cleveland Clinic says that septic shock is the most severe and last stage of sepsis. During sepsis, the body essentially overreacts to an infection, causing major organs to shut down.

Park’s “Emily in Paris” co-star Lily Collins, who plays Emily, offered her support in the comment section of Park’s post.

“I can hardly look at these without crying. I love you sister and I’m forever grateful you’re on the other side of this and for @peforman for your incredibly huge heart and for being there every step of the way. I cannot wait to hug you both,” Collins wrote.
