Hiya! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone.
I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.

If you have any suggestions, please share. With thanks!

We don’t all love Joan. She’s a racist who celebrated while 550 innocent children in Gaza were slaughtered by Israel. Pull the plug already!

This is a medically induced coma, intentionally induced by doctors, not a coma caused by an injury. It was done to let her brain rest and reduce the risk of further brain injury after cardiac/respiratory arrest. Doctors slowly bring patients out of medically induced comas. The problem is not the doctor’s getting her to wake up, the problem is what kind of condition she will be in when the sedation that has kept her in the coma has worn off. The prognosis for someone her age is not good. Any other conditions she may have had prior to the procedure are now irrelevant. She may have been ill advised to go ahead with the procedure she was undergoing that caused her to go into cardiac/respiratory arrest. It is a tragedy. I think the true details about her condition are being held back from the public until her family has decided what to do. God Bless them.

Our prayers are with you, Joan! You brought so much joy and laughter! You are the best and no one can hold a candle to you. They’re are so many cruel people out there, suggesting that the plug be pulled. Would they like that for themselves. Yes, it’s all about them, they only know themselves and couldn’t care less about others. Wake up people…look in your own closet and let’s talk about pulling your plug. Only God has the right to decide when. Show some respect!

Before anyone pulls a plug make sure their is nothing that can be done & let that daughter believe that her Mom will be alright cause Joan rivers just might fool you all their is a God & why not a miracle, believe

Joan claims she bought it 15 years ago & right now the woman is in a hospital on life support we all love Joan & wish her well & we all are praying for her. she does not belong to be on life support because first of all she never should have been in a clinic for a procedure, at 81 & at any age really. you need to be in a hospital where they are ready with all the right equiptment for any emergency.She was in a clinic & they botched her procedure & now thank God the family is going to sue like the comment I wrote before, by the way where is the idiot that said I need to go back to school hello maybe you were one of the idiot doctors working on her maybe.
again be afraid be very afraid, doctors are not like they were years ago, today again I say your just a number a dollor sign. Here is what they do they make so many appointment in their office to see everyone to make sure they make their money, while you just sit & sit waiting for some doctor who can’t even remember what he ate or what patient you are. They look you over make believe they are listening to you & fill you up with medication, well the medication helps one things & the side effects can kill you its a joke all of it & you see more & more things like this happening. I wonder does Obama have this medical coverage I doubt it.
I do not talk out of my hat I have seen what doctors can do to older people, my Mom & I were like Melissa & Joan so close, I took care of my Mom for 4 years with Alzheimer’s every time we went to the doctor they would say do you want a flu shot for her I never would let her take one. My husband took her to the doctor & they gave her a flu shot that next day she was not able to open her mouth or eat she had to go to the hospital on life support, the flu shot cause her not to be able to open her mouth. When I when to sue the doctor the lawyer told me your Mother was to old she was 74, & it would cost to much don’t do anything it is not worth it. My husband was told by his Florida doctor Dr Copone he had cancer all over his body after he sent him for an X-ray for a pain in his side he could not understand or read the x-ray so they sent him to a cancer doctor. Well thank god my husband did not have any cancer & the doctor was an idiot & I never went back to him I could not even look him in the face. All I thought was another idiot.
So again be afraid be very afraid look & see how many people they have made mistakes on how scary is that. Like you check out a car when purchasing it you need to do the same to a doctor or a dentist.
This is a horror story & Joan river’s & her poor daughter Melissa is going to live because someone did not do their job or care what they were doing God bless you Joan & you also Melissa we are all praying for you both.

On top of the other replies you got, I wanted to mention that even back in the day, animals used for fur were never skinned alive. Where did you get such a nonsensical idea?

I am an animal lover, I would not wear a real fur, I do not believe in killing any animal but we are talking about a woman who is sick right now & needs prays, & who gives to many people & helps them. Not about wearing furs, I wonder do you eat meat, I hope you do not eat meat cause your guility of doing the same. It just seems so very cruel to hear people saying pull the plug & talking about wearing furs when we have a special person here that needs prays not people being cruel.

I feel so sorry for Melissa….because she really thinks her Mother…..will wake up and be the same person. It would be a miracle if she does wake up at all.

Joan Rivers is the most outspoken and courageous women of her time, I knew it was time for her to shine I have been following her lately on drifferent TV shows , and she was really worrying about her life and her death she said her friends was dropping her like flies, she was worrying about if anyone will be at her funeral . Well joan will get the last laugh she is a winner in her own rights. I salute you Mrs.Joan Rivers for makeing me laugh and not afraid to tell someone how I really feel about them . Good bye my friend you can rest now.

Lets stop dissecting every joke Joan Rivers ever said. She is a powerful example of a person who embraced life and brought joy to others. I loved her comments about how through comedy can we deal with the darker side of being human. Cheers to Joan to for her work ethic, creative spirit and incredible sense of humor!

I met Melissa Rivers, when I was a video engineer in Los Angeles. She was a very nice person, and not at all haughty or imperial like some. No one wants to go through these things with their moms. I’m going to pray for them today and I hope you will too.
