He added: "She's got emphysema. It's in its early stages, but had itgone on for another month they painted a very vivid picture of hersitting there like an old person with a mask on her face struggling tobreathe.


"With smoking the crack cocaine and the cigarettes, her lungs areall gunked up. There are nodules around the chest and dark marks. She'sgot 70 percent lung capacity."
