(Newser) – In a sign that Farrah Fawcett's condition may be deteriorating, her son Redmond O'Neal received a get-out-of-jail pass this weekend to visit her, E! reports. “A judge signed a removal order,” a Los Angeles Sheriff’s spokesman said. “It happens sometimes for a funeral or if someone is gravely ill.” Redmond has said that Fawcett’s battle with cancer is going poorly, but others insist she is not in dire straits.
