Awesome! Thanks Restless.
I so hope that she can return somehow...
It would be a huge loss to lose our Mrs. C.
First posted an hour ago by Corbin, the second from Corbin was posted a few hours ago and the third was from the whole family on FB also few hours ago. But OH SO positive and so comforting to my soul....sign
"No news on my mom from overnight which is great news.
She may be out of ICU today. Not sure who she threatened, but assume that happened!"
"Mom is improving rapidly but still we are warned to be cautious.
That said, hearing her whisper "get me the hell outta here" is everything."
Family on FB
"From the family of Jeanne Cooper: Today was another very positive day with much improvement. Jeanne is resting and recovering. The kindness,
support, and love of all of you out there has provided much solace to all of us during the most difficult days and we are so very grateful.
We look forward to more good news as her recovery process continues. Thank you again for all of your messages of love, prayers, and support."
The power of pray
Lovely news. And yes, continued prayers...
@Harlee; Thanks for the update. I'm glad things are improving more everyday. Sounds like Jeanne will be out for awhile. I continue to pray she makes a full recovery.
The timing of this is eery considering the tumor story she has going on the show. If she can come back, I would think it could easily be worked in with her being in the hospital. And MAYBE they could even right a huge wrong that's been going on for so long and have Murphy be the one to update her GC family on her condition.
I want her back!
We are thinking about you nonstop Jeanne!
pferrando: so agree. The scene with Kay and Nikki yesterday touched me because it so paralleled what Jeanne is going through right now. I keep sending positive thoughts. I recently had the privilege of speaking with Jeanne on a blog talk radio broadcast. I was so nervous yet humbled and honored. She was the first Y&R star I wrote a fan letter too back in the 80's. Still have her autographed pic and note. Love Her!!!
The best/hardest part of that yesterday was when she told Nikki she loved her.
~~Sunday 4;45 PM UPDATE~~
This picture of Jeanne was posted 2 hours ago at the hospital on Twitter...I love this woman...made me LMFAO!!!
Go Jeanne! Sounds like we might have her back sooner than we thought!!!!!
I love that picture. Can't keep a good girl down.
Hilarious, Harlee, hilarious.
Wednesday, May 1st, Corbin Bernsen posted this to his facebook page a few hours ago. Jeanne is back in the hospital. More prayers for her and positive thinking.
"An abundance of prayers needed this morning, mom has been taken back to hospital. Not sure what to pray for at this point or what we even want for her. I know in my heart there is more for her to do in this world, but I also know there is a season for all things. I want more than anything comfort for her. I want her to have peace. This is that tricky place where you start to weigh all things, not what we need to do, actions to take, but instead open ourselves for enlightenment as to what God has planned for her and ultimately what is best for her. She's a fighter and I know she'll continue that. But when you're boxer is in the corner, bruised and bloodied from battle and demands to keep going, what do you do? I'm saying my prayers this morning, asking for guidance. Again, not reporting "the end" here, just that tricky place at the precipice and those moments requiring deepest reflection."
Wow, prayers for Jeanne. We love you.
FRIDAY,MAY 3, 2013 FROM CORBIN BERNSEN:
"Tested today. My faith, my strength, my very beliefs. End of life sucks. It's a terrible thing. I don't know many cases of "grandma went off peacefully in her sleep." Instead it seems more often it's a battle, a fight to go beyond our expiration date. And maybe there's the problem, one we create. Pushing the limits. I asked God many times today, why. Why would you give us this incredible life and end it so miserably? Okay, yes, there is more beyond this life, and I do believe that, but why end "this" one so in opposition to the beauty you have created? I"m praying for enlightenment on this. I think I understand it, but it's not clear.
Please know that I'm not saying my mother's life has ended, it hasn't, but no matter how you slice it, she is in the final stages, whether it lasts an hour, day, month or years. I had to say "goodbye" to her tonight "just in case" as I'm traveling tomorrow to Vancouver for Psych. I have prayed for her recovery... - some sort of recovery - and earlier this week got a hint of it. But then I saw her tonight, connected once again to so many tubes and machines "healing her." And there is a difference - yes they are keeping her alive just as antibiotics would do for an infection - but they are more or less there to help in her short term recovery. Is she in a natural decent toward the end? Not sure. Is there a future? Not sure? And if so, what kind of future? Even less sure.
So I said my goodbyes tonight, had a good release of emotion and then left the room, more uncertain than I have ever been about so many things. I wish I could be more positive for you tonight, but I reserve the right in this space to be plain, simple and honest. I know it's only in that realm that I will find the answers I'm looking for right now. I love you mom. I'm giving it up to you and God to find peace in this world or the next."
From the sounds of it, it does not look like Jeanne will be around much longer.
Oh my God, I just knew something was up because this whole last year "Katherine" & Jeanne didn't look good...what will happen to Y&R? I don't want her to suffer and the angels come to her in her sleep would be a blessing but I will keep praying for you, Jeanne...Godspeed
Thanks Christian for the update very heavy heart.....
Wow...this really is sad. I appreciate Corbin sharing Jeannie's status with the public, but I know this is hard for him seeing his mom in this state. My heart goes out to him and the family. My prayers is still hoping for Jeannie to pull through. If not, at least have an easy transition.
UPDATE May 4 5 hours ago from Corbin's facebook page....this isn't how I want my weekend to start and it's not sounding good but more like the possible end. I can't handle this at all....
"Clearly from my messages you all must realize the situation, and that what I had hoped and prayed for - more time - may just end up being the brief moments I had with mom earlier this week. I asked God for time, I got it and tried to fill it with as much love and laughter as I possibly could. Sitting in a movie tonight, mildly distracted from it all, I got a call from my brother and he said we have to stop being unfair. She's struggling too much. We have to let her go. I took it in, calmly, and walked back into the theater, finished the movie - Darn good Iron Man 3. I then went back to my hotel room, where I am now and broke down, conceding any fight I had left. I don't want her in pain. I don't want her in fear. I don't want her in agony. And Jeanne Cooper, Katherine Chancellor, Wilma Jeanne is a fighter! She will kick ass as long as we let her but I know now it is only for us, not for her. I had to think back sitting in her bedroom several days ago... she pointed to several objects, paintings, telling us their "value." Not much really but SHE WANTED US TO KNOW. I think she knew she was ready then, to let go. But she needed to test us to see our reaction - My reaction! Of course I immediately said, "not ready to go there mom," demonstrating exactly what she suspected; that I wasn't ready quite yet. So she hung on. Went another round. The boxer pleasing the team in their corner.
I said goodbye to her yesterday, and even then not fully meaning it or expecting that would be the last time I saw her. But now it will have to do as we enter this weekend letting her final voyage begin. And I'm good with it, honestly. Enough to be saying it here. You all have been a tremendous ear for me, to verbalize my struggles with all of this... even now with these very words... I am good. I am good. I don't want her in pain. I don't want her in fear or agony. Along with her tremendous success she's had too much of all that in her lifetime. And she's shared much of it with all of you, candidly. So I'm giving her this weekend, take the holiday, mom, make it yours, let it take you where it will. My final words to her last night were, "I'll see you again." And I will, either here or there. Prayers please for her safe and peaceful journey. I may take a break here for a bit and stay silent in prayer and mediation for the next few days... Then again, I am my mother's son and staying quiet isn't always an option. May the light of God grace shine upon us all this weekend. Make it about love, compassion, and honesty, and in doing so you will honor my mom and the examples she has always tried to set, to this very moment."
We love you Jeanne, Godspeed
It clearly breaks my heart that Jeanne is now on her final journey. Having said that, I would be remiss in saying that I do not want her in anymore pain or agony. I truly do hope that her final journey is pain and agony free and most of all, it is peaceful.
I just hope that Josh Griffith and the writing team at Y&R are putting together her final storyline with a beautifully written send off and that they bring many past cast members back to make cameo appearances during that storyline. I'm sitting here getting emotional knowing that everyone's favorite Duchess will not be around to give her sage advice anymore. This will definitely leave a very huge hole in the Y&R canvas. And to be honest, I hope that they do away with the Chancellor mansion and that Jill and Esther move someplace else. It's too bad that they can't bring Chance back as the actor who last portrayed him is now in the military. I know for sure that they'll bring Thom Bierdz back as Phillip. Tricia Cast will definitely be back as will so many others. Beau Kaizer (Brock) will be back as well. I hope that they bring Mac and JT back as well for cameo appearances as both were close to Katherine.
God bless you Jeanne, you truly will be missed and you are loved by so many. And lastly, thank you for 40+ wonderful years as Katherine Chancellor.
