After undergoing lung cancer surgery, Kathy Griffin is laughing off her “very hoarse” voice.
In an Instagram video uploaded Saturday, the 60-year-old comic offered followers an update on how she’s doing five days after having part of her left lung removed.
“Hello there, you guys. Griffin joked, “I could start posting small videos about, like, my rehabilitation and whatnot, but my voice is, like, pretty hoarse.”
She hoped her raspiness didn’t “scare people.” It’s simply that notion,” she continued. “Also, for some reason, everything makes me chuckle now. And if it’s bad, I laugh even harder!”
The Emmy winner initially updated followers on Twitter the day following her operation, letting them know she was still alive.
“Last night, my cancer operation went smoothly. She wrote, “Phew,” on Tuesday.
Griffin posted a few photographs of the flower arrangements she got after disclosing her cancer diagnosis to have some fun with her fans.
The comedian challenged followers to match the bouquets with the celebrities who gave them to her, including Kris Jenner, Rachael Ray, and Paula Abdul, among others.
The former actress of “My Life on the D-List” disclosed her diagnosis on Twitter on Monday, the same day ABC’s “Nightline” broadcast an interview with her in which she revealed horrifying details about her hidden drug addiction and being suicidal in early 2020.
“It’s not lost on me that all I wanted to do a little over a year ago was die. “All I want to do now is live,” she explained.
