TMZ reports that the 84-year-old "was at her son, Todd Fisher's home in Beverly Hills and just after 1 p.m. someone from the house called 911." She was taken to a nearby emergency room. The site also reported that she "has been distraught since Carrie's emergency Friday on a United jet." She was reportedly at her son's home to discuss funeral plans for Carrie Fisher.
