"I know my mother would be overwhelmed by the continued outpouring of kindness and I want to thank everyone for keeping us in their prayers," Melissa Rivers notes. Family and friends are with Rivers in the hospital, the New York Daily News reports. Yesterday, a source to E! News said Rivers was "on the road to recovery," though slowly, while other reports said she was being brought out of a medically induced coma. A recovery would be followed by a months- or years-long rehab period during which she wouldn't appear publicly, insiders tell the Daily News.
