After Joan Rivers gave us all a pretty bad scare yesterday, it’s good to share some better news. In case you’ve missed it, the comedienne stopped breathing while she was having throat surgery yesterday and had to be rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York.
Now, her daughter Melissa is offering up an update on her mother’s condition. It was supposed to be a routine outpatient procedure on Rivers’ vocal chords at a Manhattan clinic, but it ended up with everyone fearing for the worst.
Melissa said in a statement, “I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother. She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.”
The night before the incident, the elder Rivers was in great spirits when attending an event to promote her new book. A source said, “She was so lively and sweet. She even let people take photos with her. She definitely had a lot of energy! She was cracking jokes about everyone from Jay Leno to Jackie O. She was as sharp as she’s ever been.”
Fingers crossed that she remains in stable condition and gets past this issue with no further problems!
