On Thursday last week, comedian and host of the TV Show Fashion Police, Joan Rivers (81) went into theatre in good spirits for a minor throat operation. Her doctor told her she needed some work on her vocal chords.
On Wednesday night, she made jokes about her age, health and death at a show she was attending.
Little did she know that her words would ring true less than 24 hours later!
Her heart stopped during the operation and she's now on life support at a New York hospital. In the next few days, her family will have to decide, along with doctors, whether to turn the machines off and see whether she'll pull through on her own.
While her age is a factor that could be the result of diminished heart health, there are two crucial lessons you can learn here.
