UPDATE: Khloe Kardashian took to Twitter Tuesday evening to update fans on her condition.

"I'm so blessed I'm doing better and my infection is healing," she said. "I was able to be out and about today...Quarantine is over lol." 


Khloe Kardashian's staph infection is making it difficult to visit Lamar Odom in the hospital.

A week after canceling a book signing because of an illness, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star continues to heal from the comfort of her own home. As a result, she's been unable to visit the former Los Angeles Lakers star for several days.

"Khloe is still sick with the staph infection and hasn't visited Lamar recently," a source told E! News exclusively. "She's doing a little bit better, but no one can say when she will be able to visit him considering she can't until she's 100 percent fully healed."

Our insider added, "She's still on antibiotics fighting the infection and hasn't really left the house much. She wants to visit him, but needs to get better first."

Just last week, doctors told Khloe that she had "to lay low" as she heals from her infection. The 31-year-old hasn't been seen at major public events including the 2015 American Music Awards and Sean "Diddy" Combs' birthday party where several family members attended.

"Staph infection is no joke. Mine was exacerbated by stress which is not a great combo," she shared with her Twitter followers Saturday afternoon. "I'm under great medical care & receiving tons of love!"

She added, "I appreciate all of your prayers, well wishes and love being sent my way. I'll be better very soon. I love you guys."

With Khloe on the mend, Kim Kardashian recently updated fans on Lamar's condition. While improvements have been made, there is still much healing to do in the coming months. 

"He's here and he's alive, but to say it's not a long road and to say he's fully better is not the truth either," she told Ryan Seacrest. "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."

New episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians air Sunday nights at 9 p.m. only on E!
