Do you really feel in this Joan Rivers case, that there should be a lawsuit? I have read things like they should not have been doing the surgery to someone so old, as an outpaitent type surgery.

I get that, but with any surgeries you know there are risks, anytime. Shit happens and I don't think anyone was particularly negligent here. (From what I know) Seems a bit much, especially considering she is still alive for now. 

I am still hoping she pulls through, full recovery. It is looking more glim though each time I see something posted. =

I do feel at this time it seems completely out of hand. Thoughts?


So I read in a new article that in the coming days Melissa might have to pull her mither from life support or start making those decisions.

It truly is not looking well at all :(

I don't know the details really but no they should not be suing.  The older you are, plus the more times you have gone under general anaesthesia, the higher the risk.  Considering she is alive, they sound like heartless money grubbing asses.

I agree. I am trying not to jump to conclusions thugh since it's all articles/hearsay, who knows what is true or not. Plus, I really like the family, but it all is sounding messed up now unless there is more to the story.

surgery for someone her age is always a gamble, :(  sadly I do not think she will pull through.

Yeah, from being in a medically induced coma and heart attack, and now I am reading there is a good chance of her being a "vegetable" or losing brain function now... Not looking good whatsoever. =( I love her too! =(

Why are people so lawsuit happy? Yesterday my brother in law said I should have sued a pizza place because a piece of the soda machine fell off and hit my kid in the face. Not traumatized no long term injuries but I should sue because I'll get money.
