Valerie Harper Says 'I Am Not in a Coma'

The cancer-stricken actress updated fans on her health status.

"My dear friends and fans! As always, thank you for your amazing support. I am happy to report I am not, nor have I been, in a coma," she wrote Saturday on her Facebook page. "As anyone who has taken strong medication knows, it doesn’t always agree with you, even with me as this experience proves. I am confronting these hurdles with my usual enthusiasm and love of life."

Harper added a little joke to the post, in typical "Rhoda" fashion.

"But I must confess that the highlight of this ordeal came when I was escorted by two handsome young men and a pilot, in a medivac helicopter, as the full moon lit the sky. Talk about movie magic!!!" she added.
