Hey she survived speedballs with Belushi. The Force is with her.

15 minutes of CPR to get a pulse sounds really bad :(
papango said @ 12:26am GMT on 24th Dec
It really does. Apparently she's now 'stable' but I worry about the long term effects.

Couldn't she get a bionic heart or do you have to be a sith lord first like Vader or Cheney?

Even worse, if the article is accurate; 15 minutes of CPR on the plane, then 15 more on the ground.

The survival rate of out of hospital arrests is damn near zero. As in, I've been a doctor for almost 10 years and only seen one person survive. If she really has stabilised with that length of downtime it's nothing short of a miracle. Let's hope/pray/whatever you do that she's relatively neurologically intact.

Apparently the 'she has stabilised' was false. Her brother, who supposedly said it, has said it's not the case.

From what I have read, the often broken ribs and massive internal bruising don't help. As I understand it, the chances of resuscitation lasting for more than hours or days is ridiculously slim, and the quality of life thereafter is usually awful. Sure, there is the occasional storybook ending, but don't bet on it. DNRs are the way to go.

DNR can help get the victim/patient unhooked after the fact, but emergency responders don't check for a DNR. Unless your emergency event happens when you're already checked in to a hospital, and everyone is aware of the DNR, you're probably going to get hooked up anyway. Having it tattooed on your chest might work, but probably not.

She's in stable condition as of 16:00h PST.

Related to rogue one. Do NOT open this if you wanna keep it pure. Not that it has anything to do with this thread...

The CGI of Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia was totally in Andy valley for me and I kind of wished that they at least updated her eyebrows.

Also I'm wondering how much this heart attack is related to her "previous" coke habit and the new influx of money she is likely seeing.
papango said @ 12:36am GMT on 24th Dec
I read her autobiography and she has been through the wringer. With coke and also the mental health treatments she has had. So her heart might have been damaged, and now she's working heaps.

I got nothing but love for her. If nothing else she seems absolutely hilarious.

Her twitter is the best. And her dog is great. This is the first celebrity (almost) death that I'm really feeling.

2016 trying desperately to get just one more in, I see.

My brother wasn't expected to survive it, but he's hanging in there. Just. He probably won't make it to January, but it's probably no bad thing to slip away on sunny day with his family around.

I just saw her on 8 out of 10 Cats. I wonder if one of the headlines on the next episode will be "we almost killed Carrie."

Guys, stop boring numbers. You know he can only get off on death and tragedy if Muslims are involved.

I’ve been refraining from down-modding it on the possibility that it’s just ignorant, but that is a kiddie troll 101, just an intentionally obnoxious move with no other intent than to irritate. And failing.

For me, this shall be the setting of the standard for “boring” for its posts/comments.

Shes going to hang in there until January then kick the bucket just to say "fuck you 2016, not going to happen"
