Recommended Posts

Apparently has Alzheimers and MRSA . . . not in good shape.

"Right now she is very confused," her son said.

 

He described his mother as "quite combative ... fighting, biting -- I'm talking way off the chart."

 

"I am going to end up losing my mother if it keeps going on like this," he said.

 

Donto James said he's hoping for more information about his mother's condition.

 

"There has to be another doctor out there who can tell me what is going on with my mother," he said.

It's going to be a big struggle for Etta James.to get to 2012...

 

 

Unfortunately, it appears that legendary singer Etta James' condition

has taken a turn for the worse, right in the middle of the holiday

season. As we know, James is currently suffering from Hepatitis C,

dementia, and incurable final-stage leukemia.

The 73-year-old singer was being treated by live-in, round-the-clock

doctors at her home in Riverside, CA, until Thursday (Dec. 22) when

reports surfaced that James was rushed to the hospital.

CNN tweeted, "An update on Etta James: Her manager tells CNN that

she's been taken to the hospital - her husband and sons are with her."

The husband and sons are currently at odds over how to manage James'

care, and her fortune.

Here's hoping that her situation doesn't worsen further this week.

James' reps issued the following statement early this month: "Etta has

a terminal illness. She's in the final stages of leukemia. She has

also been diagnosed with dementia and Hepatitis C. She's in a home

right now and mostly sleeps. She is under the care of a live-in doctor

from Riverside Community Hospital and two others who have placed her

on oxygen. Her husband is with her 24 hours a day, and her sons visit

regularly. We're all very sad. We're just waiting."

C'mon Etta, just a week. I can take Gould, Frazier, and Hitchens dying, but not you.

She is now on a breathing machine according to some reports: http://www.nme.com/news/etta-james/61132

 

The good news is that her affairs are not yet in order...so it's in someones best interest to keep the machine on for the time being.

Like Etta James, I think we can all breathe easy: http://www.sacbee.com/2011/12/30/4153256/etta-james-condition-better-taken.html

 

She has been taken off the respirator, and is breathing on her own. I'm no doctor, but surely this means she will see 2012...not that I mean to jinx it...

I knew it... like I said in another post, she'll be sitting up eating biscuits in bed by the end of the week.
