Carrie Fisher Remains In Hospital This Christmas Morning

Carrie Fisher remains in hospital on Christmas Day following what was has been reported as a heart attack on a flight to LA on 23rd December.

Her brother Todd Fisher has spoken with Variety to update the media on her continued condition.

The actress was in critical condition earlier in the day, an emergency official told Variety on Friday afternoon. She was moved from the emergency room to the Intensive Care Unit hours later, her brother, Todd Fisher, said Friday evening. The actor and filmmaker said his sister is not in stable condition, despite previous reports.

“She’s in the ICU and everybody’s praying for her,” he told Variety in a phone interview. “There’s nothing new from the doctors. There’s nothing new at all. … There’s no good news or bad news.”

Todd Fisher said media outlets are “writing between the lines” in reporting that she’s now in stable condition. The Associated Press reported earlier today that Todd Fisher said Carrie Fisher was in stable condition and “out of emergency.”

He also spoke with Entertainment Tonight:

Carrie Fisher is currently in the Intensive Care Unit of a Los Angeles hospital after suffering a heart attack aboard an airplane on Friday, her brother, Todd Fisher, tells ET exclusively.

“She is in the intensive care unit, she is being well looked after,” Todd says. “If everyone could just pray for her that would be good. The doctors are doing their thing and we don’t want to bug them. We are waiting by patiently.”

Todd says Fisher’s condition is still unknown.

“We don’t know. We hope for the best,” Todd says. “We certainly do not know her condition, that’s why she is in ICU. I’m sure everyone wants to speculate, but now is not the time for that.”

We continue to send our love and thoughts to Carrie and her family at this time.
