I'm curious to hear what the autopsy says. From what I read, the fall she had wasn't bad. We were talking about it in our office yesterday and we all came to the conclusion that there had to be a pre-existing condition that the fall aggravated. Whatever happened, it is still very sad...
Nothing that I would wish on anyone, or anybody's spouse.
Just a couple weeks ago my sister in law had a brain anurism and died. Now my brother doesn't what to do with himself (he's retired). At least Liam has acting to do, and can mourn her loss as time progresses.
Jonas I am so Sorry for your Familys Loss.I've Had My Brain Anurism since 2001. After I had beed Medi Vaced from Here to Portland Org. they did My Brain Surgery and Told me to come home and "LIVE AS BEST I COULD. I HAD TWO ANURISMS. About 3 weeks after I got back I called the doctor to tell him my left foot and leg were asleep. He asked if I could Drive to his office. I said yes and left home. When I got there the nurse put me in a room and said the Dr. will be right with you. When He came in the room I was on the floor out cold I'd STROCKED OUT One of the Anurisms Burst and I had Brain Bleed. I Have one Major Anurism that the Dr.s said I'd be toast if they tried to get to it. Now I have super headachs and take 13 meds. a day. ALWAYS TELL YOUR LOVE ONES YOU LOVE THEM EVERY DAY CAUSE IT MAY BE THE DAY YOU MISS OUT. GOD BLESS
My condolences. We have a local newspaper, titled as " The Sunday Mail ". The australian media had an article printed, in context of Natasha Richardson. I thought it was quite emotional, that her mother sang the " Edelweiss " song to her in hospital room.
Please allow me, to submit a piece of the journalists article. This is how it was presented in an adelaide newspaper : " The 72- year old matriarch, of the Redgrave dynasty had tenderly stroked Natasha's face, as she sang the melody from ' The Sound Of Music '.
What a sexy and classy lady...too bad that this had to happen. Also, my condolences to Jonas and his Family, as well as JimmyJohn...very tragic stories from you both, and I wish you best of luck for the future!
I think the thing to keep in mind is that the blunt impact head injury is the result of the fall distance from how high your head is from the object (usually the ground) it strikes. It's not at all normal the speed at what you are traveling into something. Like a tree, ie Sonny Bono.
Like JJ said, wear a helmet unless your a donor. Also, remember that a $10 helmet = $10 head. I have a friend that is still "alive", that had blunt force trauma from a fall on a motorcycle. It slide out from under him at about 5 mph. His head hit a curb, and he is nothing like what he used to be. Nobody home, violent, and does not know who he is...
Finally, thanks for your condolences guys. I hope you two guys (JJ and CB) get to live alot longer. I'd certainly miss your input if you didn't come back here.
