Carrie Fisher’s Condition Is Stable, Mother Debbie Reynolds Confirms

After a number of conflicting reports, Debbie Reynolds has confirmed that her daughter, Carrie Fisher, is in a stable condition.


Friends, family and her army of fans were delighted with the positive update by Carrie’s mother on Sunday. “Carrie is in stable condition. If there is a change, we will share it,” the 84-year-old mother and actress said next to a photograph of Carrie. “For all her fans & friends. I thank you for your prayers & good wishes.” Carrie, now 60, is most famous for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars movies.

She suffered a massive heart attack towards the end of a flight from London to Los Angeles on Friday. Initial reports came from fellow passengers on the flight and later from her brother, Todd Fischer. At that stage her condition was uncertain and conflicting reports and rumors came out. “She is in the intensive care unit, she is being well looked after,” Todd said shortly after she was admitted.

“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.” Star Wars co-star Harrison Ford sent prayers for Carrie via Twitter. Carrie’s sister, Joley Fisher also took to Twitter to send words of encouragement. “Use the force babe,” she Tweeted next to a photograph of Carrie. She included heart and lip emojis.

The next day Joley, 49 and also an actress sent another message on Twitter. This time the photo was of the two of them and their other sister, Tricia. The Tweet read. “Fisher Girls…your love and prayers are deeply felt…@TriciaLFisher @carrieffisher @Gary_TheDog.” Tricia then also shared the photo, adding. “Thank you all for the prayers for my sister. Please keep them coming. Much love.”

She later retweeted a touching photo of Carrie’s much-loved dog, Gary, staring out a window. She captioned the photo, which was uploaded by Gary’s very own Twitter account, “I’ll be waiting right here mommy. #CarrieFisher @carrieffisher #princessleia.”. Gary, the French bulldog, has apparently taken up a vigil at Carrie’s side in the hospital. We hope the news continues to remain positive.
