I am sadden to read this aritcle and the disrespect it shows for the Country Icon Loretta Lynn. This incident true or false should never have been used for promotional purposes in order to sell a product. Not just for Loretta Lynn but for any patient that is being cared for in a medical facility. There are laws in force protecting patients rights during their care and regarless of the status of that patient all are quaranteed the same rights and laws. As someone else said the wording was horrific as well as the story and I for one am sadden by the entire report. Loretta has worked many years for her fans and she deserves much more than she is getting from the media at this stage in her career. She is doing well and in her home in Hurricane Mills, TN and hopefully the media will allow her the rest. Mikael,

My husband was going around telling everyone , " Loretta Lynn died . " I think it's a damn shame to headline this story the way you did . Granted , died is in quotation marks but all the brain registers is shes dead . Anyway , I'm glad she's alive and recovering . Best wishes Ms. Lynn !!

Doctors should not wear anything resembling Michael Jackson's nose during surgery. They probably scared the poor woman to death, necessitating the resuscitation.news://alt.music.michael-jacksonhttp://groups.google.com/group/alt.music.michael-jackson?hl=enhttp://www.childrenhatemj.nethttp://www.fluttergirl.com/michaeljackson/http://www.imagedump.com/index.cgi?pick=get&tp=426184
