This is just so sad!

As we previously reported, Robin Williams‘ widow Susan Williams recently opened up about her husband’s untimely passing.

In fact, in a candid interview with People magazine, the late funnyman’s wife revealed that prior to his death he was told that he’d have to enter an inpatient treatment facility for his Parkinson’s disease — perhaps indefinitely.

She shared:

“This is when a pivotal moment happened. The psychiatrist said ‘Now, Robin…’ ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ and mind you this is a few weeks before he left [died] ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ ‘It is no longer an option to have inpatient neurocognitive evaluation. This is now mandatory and we need to decide, you need to decide where you want to go and we’re all going to figure this out.'”

However, the Oscar winner’s autopsy later revealed that he suffered from Lewy Body Dementia — which happens to cause disorientation and hallucinations. Tragic.

This meeting with the psychiatrist came about after Miz Williams found her husband with a head injury after an accident with a door in July 2014.

This news obviously shook Robin to his core, something his love noticed.

She continued:

“This was not happy news. We were scared. We were all really scared. We didn’t know what we were fighting.”

We can only imagine how hard this whole ordeal was for Susan.

Though the Hook actor may have taken his life before he could’ve been properly diagnosed, his third wife was certain he didn’t have much time left anyways.

She concluded:

“By the time he made it to inpatient we would have gotten around to the fact that he has Lewy Body Dementia. But what I know now is that if Robin was lucky he would have made it three years. And he might have never left a facility. It was very bad.”

Our hearts are with the entire Williams family during this troubling time.
