Lisa Marie Presley had been rushed to the hospital earlier in the day, her mother said on Instagram.

“Please keep her and our family in your prayers. We feel the prayers from around the world, and ask for privacy during this time,” her statement said at the time.

Lisa Marie Presley was most recently seen on Tuesday night at the Golden Globe Awards, which she attended with her mother to support the Baz Luhrmann film “Elvis,” about her late father.

In 2020, Lisa Marie Presley’s son Benjamin Keough died by suicide at the age of 27. Last July, she marked the second anniversary of Keough’s death on Instagram, sharing a photo of their matching foot tattoos.

Lisa Marie Presley, was previously married to Michael Lockwood, Nicolas Cage, Michael Jackson and Danny Keough. In addition to her late son, she was the mother of actress Riley Keough, Finley Aaron Love Lockwood and Harper Vivienne Ann Lockwood.

In September, Lisa Marie Presley wrote an essay for National Grief Awareness Day, in which she opened up about the loss of her son.

“My and my three daughters’ lives as we knew it were completely detonated and destroyed by his death. We live in this every. Single. Day,” she wrote. “Grief is something you will have to carry with you for the rest of your life, in spite of what certain people or our culture wants us to believe. You do not ‘get over it,’ you do not ‘move on,’ period.”

Lisa Marie Presley also said in the essay that she found comfort in the company of people who have faced similar tragedy, adding that her daughters help keep her going.

“I keep going for my girls,” she wrote. “I keep going because my son made it very clear in his final moments that taking care of his little sisters and looking out for them were on the forefront of his concerns and his mind. He absolutely adored them and they him.”

Station Upgrades are happening

I found myself ready to jump off the T-Mobile and US Cellular track soon Due to it being very affordable. It does not state whether the user can bring their own device but one thing I know is I will use the hotspot which normally is 600+ – it costs 349$ one time fee to get this router. It can have it’s IMEI changed if I wished to do so for being able to use carrier locked sim cards – like T-Mobile Home Internet or US Cellular home internet.

Which you can read about the trouble I’m facing with getting US Cellular to work in this building – T-Mobile and Verizon managed to work without issues assuming you are near a window. US Cellular doesn’t work at all – for that reason I had US Cellular help me find a solution – a booster from WeBoost is being used. And It appears I have to register the device to begin using.

While I’m there I will most certainly ask why the booster is very hot given that I am on a payment plan for the booster and the iPhone as well as my home internet. Just like Radio Plus does I plan to bring my USB modem or my netgear LBR20 to live events which can be unlocked after payments are finished.

I also found out that it’s possible to get the same laptop I got from MPTC for 285$ now – a great deal compared to the 1,400$ it cost when I was in school.

I’m looking to have a 2nd laptop. Because it’s time to make things better. I’m also workin getting a J-Pole for 94.7 FM, 87.7 and also for 105.1 – by getting a J-pole the Coverage should be very much improved.

The fire that happened was related to cooling issues in the computer rack. The computer was already struggling at the time – it was due for replacement, no flames were visible, just smoke, no damage present in the apartment thankfully no one was injured.

On the engineering side I’m going to get at least one Digital TV modulator to get TV 34.1 and possibly 2 or more commercial grade amplifers to run at full power and likewise I will be getting a new server rack which will be about 6 feet in the air but well worth it for my needs as the station server rack is in dire need of being upgraded. Likewise I will remove the motherboards from the existing cases and actually use a 2U server rack case to place the 2 computers that are currently hanging on the top of my stuff – more notably I will be buying a barrix both instreamer and exstreamer in the months ahead.
