Joan Rivers Upgraded to Stable Condition After Surgery Scare

Joan Rivers‘ condition has now been upgraded to “stable” after getting into a scary situation during surgery on Thursday morning (August 28).

The 81-year-old comedy legend was having surgery on her throat at a New York City clinic when she stopped breathing during the procedure.

Joan stopped breathing and was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital. The person who called 911 reportedly said she was having “cardiac or respiratory arrest.”

“Our own lovely living legend Joan Rivers is in stable condition at Mt Sinai hospital,” E! News reporter Ken Baker tweeted. We hope he is right!

    Good, hope she recovers. All the loser/haters who gripe about her, if you’re so dumb that you don’t get her humor, then go do something else. People forget to mention that the person she ridicules the most is herself.

  • ha!

    @Lol: Aww….angry much? Loser troll who’s probably Jewish.

  • Vendetta Chronicles

    Glad to hear she’s stable.

    Seriously at 81yrs, still wants to be 18yrs, this is what’s get

  • Who cares?

    She’s a despicable human being. She’s having a taste of her own medicine.

    Humor? You call making fun of people’s appearance humor? You think making fun of people with disabilities fun? Calling people’s children ugly funny? Robin Williams was funny. This woman is just vile!!

    Sadly, stable just means she had pulse, blood pressure and respirations. Only time will tell the truth.

    I have to think that Joan is showing signs of Dementia. My grandmother has it and she started out for the first three years being hateful. Before that she was happy and had a good sense of humor.

    Just watch… two years from now she will be unable to know who is who.

    Well, the Grim Reaper comes for all of us eventually. When he comes for me I hope he’s wearing a tuxedo.
