According to this she did not hit anything, just fell on snow, and walked inside by herself.

A headache made her go to hospital, & now she's jetted to a NYC one.

Rumor has it that the 'dead' reports started when some people saw her -after- she'd been sedated. (and told a tabloid) But sounds like the doctors did it to prevent brain swelling.

Hopefully they're just being over-cautious.

Well, everyone is reporting brain trauma, so until I hear otherwise, that's what I'm going with.

Well, Debbie Downer, that wasn't the news I expected from your blog on St. Patty's Day!!! But, as I've said many times, we don't make the news, we just slant it! Hopefully she'll be okay for the kid's sake. We can fight over Liam if she doesn't!

What a horrible thing to happen. I don't ski, but it seems like everyone who does ends up really hurting themselves eventually.

Let's hope Natasha pulls through.

Sorry Miss GG - I don't celebrate St Patrick's Day. The very thought of corned beef and cabbage nauseates me, as does drinking too much beer. :P~
