Despite having to balance her recovery and work, Rancic asserted that she is keeping everything in perspective, being fortunate enought to have such a great job with E! She also expressed her gratitude to her fans through the tough times, who consistently sent her reassuring messages through social media.
"The outpouring and the love and support was just beyond anything I could have ever imagined," she said. "I really relied on a lot of those messages I was receiving through Twitter and email and through blogs right before the surgery and the week I was recovering. I know it sounds so cliché, but I think it helped me recover quicker and it got me in better spirits."
