The harrowing news comes from her mother, Fran Wyles, who took to Facebook to share an update on the status of her 39-year-old daughter following Saturday's suspected fentanyl-laced cocaine overdose that killed three, including comedian Fuquan Johnson, at a house party in a Los Angeles, California, neighborhood.

Johnson, 43, comedian Enrico Colangeli (Rico Angeli), 48, and Quigley's personal friend, 33-year-old Natalie Williamson, were found dead by emergency services at the Venice Beach home that is reportedly adjacent to a building in which Kate is known to have lived. According to reports, she was found unresponsive and rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Though she's now more stable than she was, her mom knows her road to recovery will be a long one.

"Thank you everyone for your prayers and positivity," Fran shared. "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)."

Worried about Friday night's deadly drug incident, Redban had texted Quigley, "Text me you're okay." She responded, "I'm alive. Not great. But im OK."

Investigators have said they believe all four people ingested cocaine laced with fentanyl, a synthetic opioid similar to morphine that's considered to be 50 times more potent than heroin.

Autopsies are currently being performed on the three victims.
