I’ve been trying to avoid posting about “hard news” this week, and this story is technically about entertainment, but it’s still bad news, basically:
Carrie Fisher of Star Wars fame is in the ICU in UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles after suffering a massive heart attack on a flight to LA from London. Reports are she stopped breathing for ten minutes and was placed on a ventilator after a pulse was found.
Despite some earlier reports that Fisher was in “stable” condition, the Daily Mail story reported this wasn’t the case. Basically, all we know for sure tonight is that Fisher is in intensive care and she isn’t dead.
Honestly, this sounds grim. I will keep you posted.
