Carrie Fisher Health Update: How Is She?!?

by at .

We have an update on the status of Carrie Fisher.

As has been widely reported, the beloved Star Wars actress suffered a massive heart attack while on board an airplane on Friday afternoon.

She fell unconscious 15 minutes prior to landing in Los Angeles and was unresponsive while paramedics rushed to her side immediately after her flight touched down at LAX.

In the aftermath of this scary incident, it was unclear whether or not Fisher would survive.

Fisher's brother, for example, could only tell reporters that Fisher was in ICU, saying hours after his sister fell ill that "there's nothing new from the doctors."

Fans have been left to refresh the Internet and pray for good news ever since.

But now we appear to have some.

Fisher's mother, Debbie Reynolds, has taken to Twitter and addressed the health of her daughter for the first time since Friday's heart attack, giving followers a reason to hope for the best.

Wrote the 84-year old former actress on social media:

Carrie is in stable condition.If there is a change,we will share it. For all her fans & friends. I thank you for your prayers & good wishes.

Thank goodness, right?

This message comes on the heels of Fisher's half-sister, Joely, sharing a family photo on Instagram from her Christmas Eve dinner, along with a brief, heartfelt message to fans.

"The incredible outpouring of love and prayers has been felt…Merry…Happy…Healthy…from our family to yours," she Joely as the image's caption.

Fisher was on plane from London to Los Angeles when she went into cardiac arrest.

The Los Angeles Fire Department received a call shortly after noon on Friday and responded to LAX Gate 74, with paramedics performing "advanced life support" on the star, according to E! News.

Yes, it was that serious.

Carrie Fisher Rules!

While nearly everyone in Hollywood has sent along his or her best wishes to Fisher in the hours and days since this near-tragedy, many eyes have been on the Star Wars universe.

Along those lines, Harrison Ford released the following statement:

"I'm shocked and saddened to hear the news about my dear friend. Our thoughts are with Carrie, her family and friends."

And Mark Hamill has written often on Twitter of his beloved ex-colleague, most recently using the hashtag #CarrieChristmas and posting the following photo:
