Good news! THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS star Jeanne Cooper (Katherine) has turned a corner! Her son, Corbin Bernsen (ex-Father Todd), posted the following update on his Facebook page last night:
Good news continues for my mom as I believe she is being moved out of ICU to a more “comfortable” room. I was able to Face Time with her today and I can’t tell you how amazing it was to speak to her and hear her voice! Her sense of humor was in tact, the greatest sign of all. I want to take a moment here to express something that – as usual – I’m at a bit of a loss for words for. So much of my reporting to you in the last week has been a sincere effort to convey her status and progress. And with your magnificent, steady prayers she has, day by day, improved. Yet still I feel a bit “guilty,” weird. I mean, with all the other suffering going on, it’s hard to celebrate this miraculous recovery. Also, about that, her extraordinary recovery… I’ve looked back over the posts because I wanted to make sure that I have been truthful and accurate. I know for a fact she was in extreme, life threatening danger that was even made more clear to me than perhaps I let on. But then, she did improve, steadily and somewhat defied the extent of the terrible news I was delivering. I want to make sure no one misinterprets this as my “making more of it than it actually was.” I can guarantee you that wasn’t the case. Her recovery has been nothing short of “miraculous” and very quick considering everything. That will be, if all continues in this fantastic way, the legacy of this… the effect of prayer and the ability for miracles. As always I want to close with making sure I’m accurate once again and letting you know that which I’ve been told… remain cautiously optimistic. That will most likely last for some time now but in the upcoming days I’ll most likely drop it from these posts. I will keep the connection with you both regarding her recovery as well as “what all of this ultimately means” in the bigger picture.
I also want to take a moment to once again thank the INCREDIBLE STAFF at Cedars Sinai hospital who have helped in this miraculous recovery (that involved a lot of non miracle, expertise and kindness.) Also, I haven’t mentioned my brother Collin by name, or my sister Caren who have stood by my side, holding me up and shared in your kindness. I love them both and feel closer to them than ever.
