She was hooked up to all manner of things.. She must be over 90...The reporter asked her if she was scared of her CV diagnosis... 😑 😑 😑 😑 What a fuckwit thing to ask!!
Poor lady looked absolutely petrified and was asking for her children.... πŸ˜” πŸ˜” πŸ˜” πŸ˜”

Normally I am all over stupid questions but I thought what she said was okay. I'm pretty sure she didn't say are you scared of your diagnosis. I was sad to see how slight she looked and wished they'd covered her more for dignity.

I saw the news and felt so sad for the elderly lady. The reporter did ask if she was scared which was such an insensitive question to ask someone who was clearly vulnerable. I also think that someone should have covered her to a) keep her warm and b) preserve some dignity. Either way, I just felt really sorry for the lady who obviously felt very unwell, alone and frightened.

Have been thinking of that lady all evening... Her poor family and friends seeing her on the news like that and that's without the arsehat questions!!
