Patty Duke Recovering From Heart Bypass Surgery

LATEST: VALLEY OF THE DOLLS star PATTY DUKE is in fair condition after undergoing single bypass surgery yesterday (03NOV04).

The 57-year-old actress is currently in the intensive care unit at the North Idaho Heart Center, after having the surgery at Kootenai Medical Center in Couer d'alene, Idaho.

The medical centre's spokeswoman TERI FARR says, "Her husband said everything went well."

Last spring (04), the actress was admitted to the heart center for insertion of a stent in one of her arteries to improve blood flow.

Duke, mother of LORD OF THE RINGS star SEAN ASTIN, is expected to recover in time to serve as chairwoman for the FESTIVAL OF TREES later this month (NOV04), with proceeds benefitting the heart centre.

She lives in the area with her husband MIKE PEARCE.
