Following Kate’s hospitalization on Saturday, her mother Fran Wyles wrote in a Facebook post,

 "Thank you everyone for your prayers and positivity. Kate is stable.

"She still isn’t lucid for more than a moment at a time. We are optimistic that she will recover (tho it won't be quick).

"She is unable to post (contrary to reports) but we are hoping she might be able to tomorrow. Again, thank you."

Kate has not posted anything publicly regarding her recovery but allegedly texted a fellow comedian Brian Redban saying, "I'm alive. I'm not great. But I'm OK."

Fellow comic Fuquan Johnson, 42, was pronounced dead at the scene alongside stand-up Enrico Colangeli, 48, and Quigley's 33-year-old friend Natalie Williamson, 33.

Fuquan Johnson and Kate Quigley are known to have been friends and have been photographed together over the last few years.
