    Wow that's fancy!
    I just watched her last interview with Ellen that I had recorded. Very sad to know she died not too long after.
    Bless her heart.

    well considering the fact that she did cocaine back in the day and other drugs, with a combo of heart disease and sleep apnea, that will weaken the heart, I wonder if she was a snorer as people that snore tend to put strain on the heart and that is not good.

    I know she was always struggling with drug use, But in reading some of the articles it is confusing as to: Was it determined that she recently had done drugs or the heart attack was caused by past drug use?

    agreed. I thought same thing. Was she doing drugs again? Weird in this day and age it isnt more specific.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Carrie Fisher's autopsy report shows the actress had cocaine in her system when she fell ill on a plane last year, but investigators could not determine what impact the cocaine and other drugs found in her system had on her death.
    The report released Monday states Fisher may have taken cocaine three days before the Dec. 23 flight on which she became ill. She died four days later.
    It also found traces of heroin and MDMA, which is also known as ecstasy, but that they could not determine when Fisher had taken those drugs.

    Carrie Fisher had cocaine, methadone, heroin and ecstasy in her system when she died in December, according to an autopsy report released Monday.
    The coronerís report listed sleep apnea as the primary cause of death, with drug intake as a contributing factor.

    The pulmonary system is usually one of the first things compromised in an OD death. How many times have we read on this forum of people saying, "I thought they were ok, I heard them snoring." Even when they do not have a history of snoring. It's your body fighting to stay alive. Heath Ledger comes to mind.

    So she does a bunch of drugs and gets on a plane from London to LA - falls asleep on the plane either sitting up or in a reclining position - suffers from sleep apnea and goes into cardiac arrest. Dies in hospital four days later.

    Obviously, she had already weakened her heart and respiratory system from years of drug use, and finally, being 60 helped tip the balance when she decided to chance it once again and sedate herself. Lifelong old druggies are in the minority...yes I know that Anita O'Day lived to be 87, but for every one of her, 9 others don't make it to 65 on a scale of 10.

    Still a bit of a shock to hear. I stopped using drugs and quit drinking when I was in my mid to late forties. I couldn't handle the fallout after a weekend bender anymore, it was too tough on the body. It didn't help my mental state either.

    To really know people is to be able to read between the lines on their faces.

    I was surprised at her passing. I had no idea she was so bad off. It affects me somewhat because of course she was Princess Leia in my all-time favorite movie. On a whim I took a look at her final Tweets. She posted many selfies and you can see from her facial expression maybe everything is not quite alright. https://twitter.com/carrieffisher
