Carrie Fisher fans and Hollywood colleagues have been sending their thoughts and prayers to the Star Wars actor since she suffered a heart attack on a Dec. 23 flight from London to Los Angeles. According to a tweet by Fisher's mother, Debbie Reynolds' update says that Carrie Fisher is in "stable condition" on Christmas Day. The Dec. 25 social media update by Reynolds includes a photo of her daughter, as well as the following message: "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."

It's great news for family, friends, and fans of the beloved 60-year-old actor, who has been in the hospital since Dec. 23, when TMZ reported that Fisher suffered "a massive heart attack." On that flight, actor Anna Akana and comedian Brad Gage sat in front of the beloved actor who played Princess Leia in the Star Wars films and they had posted about the scary situation on Twitter as it was occurring on Friday.

“Don’t know how else to process this but Carrie Fisher stopped breathing on the flight home. Hope she’s gonna be OK,” Akana tweeted. Gage said in a tweet: "I'm in complete shock. Anna Akana and I sat in front of Carrie Fisher on our flight from London and she was just taken off the plane by EMTs."

On Christmas Eve, the Associated Press reported that Fisher's brother Todd said she was "out of emergency" and stabilized at a Los Angeles hospital and ABC Los Angeles reporter George Pennacchio quoted Todd as saying she is getting "the best care."

It's seriously good to know that Fisher is doing better on Christmas and fans send their well wishes to the actor for her recovery.
