Farrah Fawcett in Critical Condition

by at .

A cancer-stricken Farrah Fawcett was fighting for her life Sunday night at an L.A. hospital where she slipped into unconsciousness as her relatives gathered by her bedside, hoping for a recovery but preparing for the opposite outcome.

The former Charlie's Angels star, now 62, has been in an undisclosed hospital since Thursday, and her declining health has a team of doctors fearing the worst.

Fawcett has been ravaged by her second bout with a rare form of colorectal cancer since 2006. Her longtime lover, actor Ryan O'Neal, was at her bedside.

Adding to the family drama was the arrest of Redmond O'Neal, her son, on drug charges - specifically, allegations that he tried to smuggle drugs into a jail.

Redmond O'Neal, 24, who had earlier joined his dad at his mother's bedside, was busted when he drove a friend to a detention facility in Santa Clarita, Calif., and guards found drugs on him at a checkpoint. Always a smart move, Red.

We wish Farrah Fawcett and her family the best in this difficult time.
