The Los Angeles Times had previously reported that Fisher was in critical condition. Her daughter Billie Lourd and beloved dog Gary were spotted at the hospital on Friday, according to TMZ.

Todd Fisher, the actress’ brother, told the AP that his sister was “out of emergency” and stabilized at a Los Angeles hospital, but declined to offer further details.
