Is anyone else really saddened by the Natasha Richardson situation? According to “People”, a family friend is stating that she’s brain dead, basically alive only because of a machine. If this is really the case, then my heart just goes out to her family – her husband Liam Neeson, their 2 teenage boys, and her mother Vanessa Redgrave.
She was fine for at least an hour after her skiing accident – walking around, laughing – then she started to complain of a headache and went to the hospital. The latest news confirmed my earlier suspicion – a subdural hematoma. They say this is why whenever someone falls and hits their head, even if it seems like a minor thing, you should go to the hospital to get checked out. In nursing school, they scared us with cases of children falling on the playground, not losing consciousness, and seeming fine for an hour or two, only to end up dying. My heart wishes her and her family all of the best, and good luck.
