Playing Todd Fisher Tweets About Sister Carrie Fisher’s Death Hours Before Mom Debbie Reynolds' Hospitalization

It's been an emotional several days for the family of Carrie Fisher.

Carrie's younger brother, Todd Fisher, shared a heartbreaking tribute to the late actress on Wednesday, hours before their mother, Debbie Reynolds, was hospitalized for a reported stroke.

"My sister has graduated to heaven, but she has left us all with so much of her," Todd captioned a childhood photo with Carrie and their mom."It is a very sad time for my family and all her friends."

Todd, 58, also opened up about the close bond that he shared with Carrie in a touching tweet earlier this month.

"We have always been close," he wrote on Dec. 10. "That's why my mother had me, so Carrie would have someone to look after her."

Reynolds, 84, suffered a medical emergency on Wednesday while at Carrie's home, ET has learned. The screen legend and her daughter lived on the same property in Beverly Hills, California.

Fire officials tell ET that responders were called to the home at 1:02 p.m. local time, and transported a person at the residence to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Yesterday, Reynolds shared a Facebook post thanking everyone for embracing her daughter’s "gifts" and "talents."

"I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop," Reynolds added.

Carrie, who shot to fame as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy, died on Tuesday, days after going into cardiac arrest while aboard a Los Angeles-bound flight from London.

The 60-year-old actress' shocking death has been met with an outpouring of tributes, including her Star Wars co-stars Harrison Ford, Billy Dee Williams and Marc Hamill. Carrie's former husband, Paul Simon, is among those who took to Twitter with a heart-wrenching post about his ex-wife.

"Yesterday was a horrible day," Simon tweeted on Wednesday. "Carrie was a special, wonderful girl. It's too soon."

Prior to her death, Carrie had purchased a home in London and was looking forward to spending more time across the pond. See more in the video below.
