Veteran actress Kathy Bates has thanked fans for their support as she recovers from breast cancer surgery.
The Misery star and ovarian cancer survivor underwent a double mastectomy this summer (12) after doctors found a lump in her breast, and she went public with her latest health crisis in America's People magazine on Wednesday (12Sep12).
The 64 year old has now returned to her Twitter.com blog for the first time in months to reach out to devotees and express her gratitude for their kind words.
Bates also manages to lighten the mood by joking about her axed TV legal drama Harry's Law, which ended in May (12) after two seasons.
She writes, "Hey All, sorry for the long silence. I was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 months ago & am recovering from a double mastectomy. I don't miss my breasts as much as I miss Harry's Law. Thanks for all the sweet tweets. Y'all kept me going."
