One of the last stars from the Golden age of Hollywood, Debbie Reynolds (age 84) was rushed to the hospital from her son’s house due to a potential stroke just a few hours ago.
At approximately 1:00 PM, a call was made requesting medical assistance. TMZ has the audio from the 911 call, however there isn’t any new information on it (Listen here).
Reports say that Debbie was planning Carrie Fisher‘s funeral with her son, Todd Fisher when this heartbreaking incident occurred.
William Shatner lovingly chimed in with his best wishes as soon as he heard:
I heard about Debbie Reynolds. Let's pray that it's nothing serious.

As much pain as we feel concerning the loss of her daughter, Carrie Fisher, it is insignificant compared to how a mother feels losing her child.
It’s no secret knowledge that Carrie and her mom were estranged for up to ten years, and finally rekindled not that long ago. In a 2011 interview with Debbie, Carrie, and Oprah; Debbie said,
It’s very hard when your child doesn’t want to talk to you and you want to talk to them, and you want to touch them, you want to hold them. It was a total estrangement. She didn’t talk to me for probably 10 years. So that was the most difficult time of all. Very painful, very heartbreaking.”
No one could have predicted exactly when either one of them would pass, which is a wonderful reason to try and forgive as much and as often as possible. Luckily, they did not stay estranged, and thus were given some invaluable time before their harsh separation.
While no one would blame Debbie for wanting to be reunited with her daughter, I am sure I am not alone in hoping that she fights and stays with us.
We are praying, wishing, and thinking about Debbie’s health. Carrie’s strength through her years had to come from somewhere, and I bet at least some of that power came from her beloved mother.
