I read recently that Martha had to cancel a public appearance because she had the flu. I found this odd, as Martha confesses that she never gets sick. “I don’t have time to be sick,” was her true-to-form response. Now, word comes that Martha did not have the flu at all–she was actually sick from salmonella, a form of food poisoning! Martha surmises that she came down with the illness after handling many raw turkeys in segments taped around the Thanksgiving holiday. FOMs: If anyone is tough enough to beat salmonella, it’s Martha, right? Glad you’re feeling better, Martha!
From Huffington Post (as is the above photo):
Martha Stewart was confined to her bed for several days last month because of salmonella infection, the New York Post‘s Page Six reported. “I never get sick, but I came down with salmonella. I think I caught it because I was handling so many turkeys around Thanksgiving,” Stewart told Page Six. “I was on the ‘Today’ show, I did a number of other [Thanksgiving] appearances. It really hit me hard and I was in bed for days. It was terrible.”
