[ # ] Teri Garr has surgery for a brain aneurysm
January 2nd, 2007 under Sick Bay

Actress Teri Garr, 62, is "recovering nicely" after undergoing surgery to treat a brain aneurysm, her rep tells PEOPLE. "She’s alert. She’s sitting up. She’s talking," says her rep. "The prognosis is very, very good." Things didn’t look so positive on the morning of Dec. 21 when Garr’s daughter Molly, 12, and a woman who works for the actress couldn’t wake Garr up and called 911. Garr – who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in the late ’90s – was immediately brought to the hospital where doctors performed a coil embolism, according to her rep. Since the surgery, Garr – whose movies include Unaccompanied Minors and Tootsie for which received a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination – spent the holidays in the hospital, with her two brothers at her bedside and "her humor seems to be intact," says her rep.


Hopefully she will get better soon.
