Country star Reba McEntire is celebrating her father's improving health - he has finally returned home after almost four months in hospital.
Clark MCEntire defied the odds and awoke from a coma after suffering a stroke in March (11), but doctors had told the singer to prepare for the worst and Reba admits she had already planned her dad's funeral.
However, in a post on her Twitter.com account on Monday (20Jun11), the hitmaker was happy to report her father is doing much better and is now recovering in the comfort of his own home in Oklahoma.
She wrote, "Just want to let you all know that my Daddy is back home after a long stint in hospitals and rehab. Thanks so much for all your prayers."
The country star was forced to skip the announcement of her induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame in March (11) after her dad fell ill - and she rushed to be at his bedside in Oklahoma.
After his initial recovery she told Cmt.com, "I'm not kidding, we had planned the funeral three times. We've selected songs, we've picked out where he's going to be buried, and now he's just done a complete turnaround."
