“The Young and the Restless” fans have watched their beloved Katherine Chancellor, as portrayed by Jeanne Cooper, struggle with a brain tumor and near death on the CBS soap opera. Now, “Y&R” viewers are having difficulty dealing emotionally with the storyline because Cooper is fighting for her life in a Los Angeles area hospital once again.
Jeanne’s son Corbin Bernsen posted an update on his Facebook fan page May 1, letting fans know that his mother’s condition has become much more serious. Sadly, Bernsen shared that he and his family has choices to make, choices that they never wanted to have to make. Sharing an emotional moment with “Y&R” and “Psych” fans, Bernsen said, “At one point mom ‘left the building’ – yes, she was gone, only to come back through the front door, kicking and screaming.”
Bernsen describes the day as purgatory with “swings toward the Peace of Heaven and the Fires of Hell and everything in between.” Jeanne Cooper is in critical condition once again, back to square one, but she is still fighting and amazing everyone, including the doctors.
Corbin declined to comment on the specifics of Jeanne Cooper’s illness because he does not want a thousand comments at this point but promised that in time he will share it all.
The following is the direct Facebook post by Corbin Bernsen:
“Purgatory. Best way I can describe an indescribable day. Waiting… with swings toward the Peace of Heaven and the Fires of Hell and everything in between. And choices. Choices I never wanted to be faced with. Highs and Lows. At one point mom “left the building” – yes, she was gone, only to come back through the front door, kicking and screaming. A Doctor remarked, “I’ve been in this situation a thousand times before and have NEVER seen this!” The fighter is out of her corner, amazing us all. Okay, enough with descriptive BS… Long story short, rough, rough day. She’s back to square one. I don’t want to disclose at this point the specific “illness” though I’m sure many of you are curious. But I don’t want a thousand comments about that. Not at this point. In time I will share it all. Just know that she is back in critical condition and needs your continued prayers. As for me. Honestly, I’m a bit lost, in this place – this purgatory – of truly being unsure where we are headed or what is best for her. I also toil with my choices and wonder if they are for me, for all of us… or truly for her. I’m in a haze of uncertainty about that and will be reflecting on it this evening, praying for guidance. In my heart, I see future, I see a fight and though I don’t know the quality of that future I can’t deny the sanctity of life. A tremendous battle raging inside. I wish I could have better news, or simply be more clear, but these words are a reflection of my state of mind. God Bless you all for your kindness here.”
Fans of both “The Young and the Restless” and “Psych” are praying and sending positive energy for the Bernsen family to find the guidance they need to make the difficult decisions that may need to be made. But they are also praying that Jeanne Cooper will win this battle and return to her fans for many more years.
