Melbourne, Aug 25 : Christina Applegate got through her recovery time in hospital doing crossword puzzles and crafts as well as with support of her friends.
After testing positive for the deadly illness last month, Applegate opted for a double mastectomy - and the drastic surgery left her 'clear' of any tumours.
Lance Bass, the actress' longtime friend, insists her hospital stay was made bearable by the presence of her loved ones.
"I was at the hospital holding her hand and getting her through it. She is a very, very loved person," the Daily telegraph quoted her, as saying.
"She's a big crossword puzzle girl. That kept her busy. In her hours of recovery, she's made all these roses out of lace. She has hundreds and hundreds of these amazing different roses. She doesn't know what she's going to do with them," she added.
