Most recently, Slaton has shared pictures of herself using a vape pen. In the photo, captured by SoapDirt, she shows fans her vape pen and has her oxygen tube in the photo. Slaton has also posted pictures of herself using a portable oxygen booster called Boost Oxygen.

When Slaton contracted coronavirus, she was admitted to the hospital.

“I was in the hospital for just about two weeks. …  I’m doing great. I mean yes, I’m on oxygen,” she said in a video. “That’s just to keep my lungs sturdy, strength — I won’t be on oxygen much longer. I was on 15 liters of oxygen and now I’m on three.”

But recently, she revealed that she didn’t need as much oxygen anymore when a fan asked if she was still using her oxygen machine.

“No not completely,” she answered. “I have it in case I do need it, but right now I’m good. Don’t have it on. Yea just as needed.”
