Nicole Richie Thanks Well-Wishers After Hospitalization

Nicole Richie has one more thing to be grateful for this Thanksgiving—a loyal fan base that helps see her through life’s rough patches.

Richie took to her official Web site today to thank everyone who wished her well during her recent bout of pneumonia, which landed her in Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and caused her to miss a big event for the House of Harlow 1960 jewelry line that she designed for Bebe earlier this month.

Still in the process of recuperating, Richie writes,

“I’d like to thank you all for the kind words and well wishes over the past few weeks.  I wish I could have been there for the Bebe-House of Harlow 1960 evening. I was truly looking forward to meeting everyone there and sharing that moment and capsule collection with you.  I am also disappointed I wasn’t able to attend the Holt-Renfrew Calgary opening.  I heard the store looks beautiful and Holt has been such an amazing partner over the past year. I will definitely be back in the Spring when Winter Kate launches,” referring to her upcoming clothing line.

Richie adds,

“Right now it’s important for me to stay in bed and recover. Reading all of your messages on Twitter and my website has really brightened my spirits and I am so grateful for the support. I look forward to seeing you all very soon and wish you a happy Thanksgiving.”

Best wishes for a speedy recovery!
