Two days after reportedly suffering a heart attack, famed actress Carrie Fisher is in stable condition, her mother tweeted Sunday afternoon.

Fisher, one of the stars of the Star Wars series, reportedly went into cardiac arrest on a flight Friday from London to Los Angeles and had to be given CPR on the plane. She was taken to UCLA Medical Center where she reportedly was placed on a ventilator.

On Saturday, her co-star, Harrison Ford, sent out this statement.
