Melissa Rivers is going through a terrible time right now, reportedly faced with having to take her mother, Joan Rivers, off of life support. As Melissa sits at her mother’s hospital bed side, Joan’s extended family finds themselves grieving as well. It’s not an easy situation for any one, and those closest to Joan are suffering the most. With very little hope left, people are praying for a miracle at this point.
According to The New York Daily News, Melissa Rivers is extremely distraught over potentially losing her mother. Sources say that no decisions will be made this weekend, as Melissa and those closest to Joan are trying to take everything in.
“[Melissa] still thinks everything is going to be OK. She is refusing to admit that a world might exist without her mother in it. Others that are close to Joan are starting to realize that the outcome they want is very unlikely.”
As Melissa Rivers tries to comprehend what is going on, Joan Rivers’ E! family has taken to Twitter to share their feelings, and it sounds like they are hoping for the best at this point. Since Joan was rushed to the hospital on Thursday and she is on life support(TMZ), many are starting to prepare for the worst. Of course no one wants to think that Joan isn’t going to make it, but with reports that she is only living because of a machine, the chances of her being okay are slim.
Those closest to Joan — Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne, and George Kotsiopoulos — are asking for prayers — not just for Joan, but for Melissa too.

Joan is very close to her work family (as you can see, Kelly referred to her as “my grandma”). It’s all so very heartbreaking.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Melissa Rivers is Joan’s only daughter. If a decision about Joan’s health needs to be made, that decision will be Melissa’s. It’s hard enough dealing with the situation, but having to make the decision to take a parent off of life support, especially in a case like this one, is near impossible. As Joan “rests comfortably,” her daughter is suffering unimaginably.
