She never went home from the hospital. Just another idiot writer who doesn't get their facts straight.

Well..."Mental Floss" should tell you something! Too bad stuff like this - easily fact-checked - gets out in the ether, and becomes taken face value as fact...and it's over 5 years old already! Sad.

I think this writer is conflating two events:  Lucy's 1988 stroke, from which she recovered and did, indeed, go back home; and the April 1989 hospitalization from which she didn't recover and didn't return home.
