Sad news about the beloved actress Melissa Gilbert

Melissa Gilbert appreciates everything.

One week after undergoing her fourth spinal surgery, the former Little House on the Prairie star, 56, reflected on everything she had to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Gilbert shared a video of the Nov. 19 treatment with the caption, “Though I am just one week out, it is clear that this procedure for me has been a life-changing event.”

“Despite being separated from my loved ones this Thanksgiving, I am immensely grateful. I am aware that this is only a temporary separation and that by the following Thanksgiving, not only will we all be back together, but I will also be free of pain and restrictions to cooking food, play games, and enjoying the holiday,” she added. “Best wishes, and stay safe. Oceans of love are being sent your way.”
