(Marie) Dionne Warwick who just turned 74 on Dec. 12, is home recovering from ankle surgery. Ironically on Jan. 24, Warwick slipped and fell in her shower in South Orange, New Jersey and was immediately taken by ambulance to the hospital where she stayed for almost two weeks.
Dionne, the first cousin of Whitney Houston who died 3 years ago in her tub at the Beverly Hilton, was still hospitalized when she learned Bobbi Kristina (Huston’s daughter) was found unresponsive in a bathtub. Bobbi Kristina, has been in a medically induced coma since last Saturday. She is surrounded by family praying for a healing miracle at Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital which has a world class neurological department.
Dionne wrote on Twitter yesterday, “On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you for all your kind words. All in God’s plan.” “The timing is remarkable. The 911 call for Dionne came in at 10:19 AM on Saturday, January 24th. The 911 call for Bobbi Kristina came in exactly a week later, at 10:25 AM on Jan. 31, writes TMZ.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year about 235,000 people over age 15 visit emergency rooms because of injuries suffered in the bathroom, and almost 14 percent are hospitalized. More than a third of the injuries happen while bathing or showering.
We at Vibe Vixen send love and support to Dionne, Bobbie Kris, and their entire family.
