Richie still recovering from pneumonia

NICOLE RICHIE is still bedbound at home in Los Angeles as she recovers from her pneumonia scare.

The socialite checked herself into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last week after struggling to shake off what she thought was a cold.

Her boyfriend, Joel Madden, announced on the star was back at home, but several days later, Richie has revealed she's still struggling to get her health back on track - and she's crediting her fans' support for helping her through.

Taking to her online blog, Richie writes "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. I'd like to thank you all for the kind words and well wishes over the past few weeks."
