The comedienne has been hospitalised since Thursday (28Aug14), after she suffered cardiac and respiratory arrest during a routine throat operation at a nearby clinic. The 81 year old was placed in a medically-induced coma and remains on life support, but her daughter Melissa has informed fans her mum has been moved to a private room and is resting comfortably.

A statement from Melissa on Wednesday (03Sep14) reads, “My mother has been moved out of intensive care and into a private room where she is being kept comfortable. Thank you for your continued support.”
