Anakin Skywalker’s new life is on the verge of ending in a hospital
Posted July 05, 2019 09:30:00 Anakin, the character played by Anthony Daniels in the Star Wars saga, has a new life.
He’s getting a kidney and is taking his medication.
He was in the ICU overnight but is doing well, hospital spokesperson Sue Friesen said.
“He was at the hospital overnight with his father, and his father had a heart attack, so we took him off life support and we have been in touch with his dad,” she said.
Anakin was in hospital overnight after a heart incident at the age of 12.
He underwent a kidney transplant at the University of Queensland Hospital in Brisbane, but it was not successful.
His father is still recovering, but he is in good spirits, Ms Friesens said.
The hospital will also help his father’s family get on with their lives.
“We have an online program for family members to access the hospital,” she explained.
“They will be in touch when we can make arrangements for his father to be discharged, but we want to make sure he is able to be with his family.”
The doctors have been very understanding and we are happy to be able to help them.
“Anakin’s family has been supportive, and are working through the logistics of their son’s hospitalisation, Ms Huesen said, adding that his mother is “in a bit of a better place”.”
She is very hopeful,” Ms Fuesen added.”
She has been through a lot of things that she is struggling with and has been very supportive of her son, but obviously this is just the beginning.
