    Just heard about this. I certainly hope for the best. 2016 is being a real bugger.

    I hope she pulls through. This year can't end soon enough.

    I really hope she makes it, Alan Rickman was a bad enough start to the year, let's not try and bookend it with another tragedy. All my thoughts are with her.

    At the minute the BBC breaking news site seems to have the best information for anybody wanting to keep up to date.

    As a physician, I'm trying not to read between the lines based on the limited info that we have.

    My best wishes for her; been watching her film roles since Summer 1977. They are saying "cardiac arrest" but that can be a general term. Sudden loss of consciousness and passing out can come from multiple issues, such as:

    1) Acute myocardial infarction, "heart attack"
    2) Stroke
    3) Pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lungs)
    4) Leaking or ruptured aneurysm
    5) Acute toxicity (drug overdose), although this is not normally a "sudden" thing where you are just fine one moment and unconscious the next.


    ...having said that, and not to sound morbid, but this could completely change the course of Episodes 8 and 9. And you know that Lucasfilm is shocked at the moment, for myriad reasons. People being told to go look at entertainment contracts and insurance policies about right now...

    God bless Carrie. Speedy recovery!

    I hope there will be an escape for the princess this time.

    2016 has been a cruel year, it needs to show mercy.

    Totally agree, this year has really sucked for so many reasons for me.

    My my prayers go out to Carrie and her family. Hope she pulls through.

    Just saw this news and needless to say I'm saddened beyond belief. I really hope she pulls through, but the way this year has gone I'm not optimistic about it. Thoughts and prayers are with her.

    Oh Carrie, please be well.

    I hate to say this, but could it be drug related? Or just natural causes? Man...what a bummer.

    Everyone should go listen to Paul Simon's song "SHE MOVES ON" which he wrote about her after their relationship ended. The lyrics really take on a new meaning now.

    She went into cardiac arrest and underwent CPR but we don't have any idea how much perfusion was lost to her brain when she went down. We can only hope she had CPR delivered optimally because that's not always the case - especially under pressure. Under the circumstances a degree of brain damage would be expected. I pray for Carrie. And I'm praying for a miracle.

    I'm glad they got her to a hospital in time, in the air has to be one of the worst places, and hopefully she pulls thru over the next few days.

    this is just plain old depressing.

    But considering this poor soldiers medical conditions of the past, i'm quite honestly surprised nothing like this has happened sooner... sigh.


    2015 started with taking James Avery away from us right off the bat. 2016 can't end like this.
