Emily in Paris was renewed for a fourth season in January 2022 ahead of its season 3 premiere. Although production on season 4 was delayed due to last year's writers and actors' strikes, the cast had its first table read on Jan. 19.

Park, however, revealed days later that she had been hospitalized and was in the intensive care unit for "critical septic shock."

"As I sit here processing and recovering from the first few weeks of 2024, the only word I can think of is grateful," she captioned the post, which featured several photos of her in the hospital with costar and boyfriend Paul Forman. "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."

The Joy Ride star also said she's most grateful to Forman, 29, for being "unconditionally" by her side throughout.

"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," she added. "I love you Paul. More than I can ever say."

Per the Mayo Clinic, septic shock is a life-threatening medical condition that involves an infection in the body that causes extremely low blood pressure and organ failure due to sepsis.

A source tells PEOPLE that Park was "very sick" but "slowly on the mend." She then shared days later that she was "recovering and resting" in Paris with her Emily in Paris family, thanking them and Netflix for "their genuine kindness and gracious patience as I wait to be medically cleared to work."

"I promise I'm breathing through this all and taking as much care of myself as I can to get back into fighting shape," she captioned her post, which included a photo of her with costar Lily Collins. "In the meantime, thanks for the couch cuddles @lilyjcollins ;)"
