Bobbi Kristina Brown Update: No Improvement, Family Faces Reality
It’s been almost two months since Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unconscious in a bathtub in her townhouse in Roswell, Georgia, yet despite massive medical efforts, her health doesn’t seem to be improving. People reports that although her family hopes for a miracle, the reality of the situation is starting to sink in.
Pop singer Bobby Brown, 46, is understandably saddened that his 22-year-old daughter remains in a medically-induced coma. It goes without saying that most parents would do everything possible to ensure that their children get the best medical care. However, as the days go on and Bobbi Kristina remains unresponsive, family members think that Brown may need to face the grim reality that his child may never overcome her medical issues.
Insiders told People that although Bobby wants to try everything possible to keep his daughter alive, other family members are coming out of their initial shock and hoping that Bobbi Kristina’s father sees the grim possibilities of her future.
“You can’t tell Bobby what to do, and he is in charge. We are just letting him do what he wants.”
Nevertheless, as Bobbi Kristina Brown’s only surviving parent, sources indicate that it is ultimately his decision when it comes to his daughter, and he is not ready to let her go.
“Bobby is the decision maker.”
Last week, Bobbi Kristina was reportedly moved from Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital to an undisclosed medical rehabilitation center. Since then, nothing has been shared regarding her condition. After these grim updates, however, it may indicate that the young heiress may never fully recover.
CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta previously reported that Emory physicians took Bobbi’s breathing tube out in attempt to allow her to breathe through a small opening in her throat area. Gupta states that physicians attempting such a procedure generally indicates that she’ll need breathing support for a long time.
Meanwhile, speculations and rumors about Nick Gordon continue to grow. He remains in the spotlight after police found physical marks and bruises on Bobbi Kristina shortly after she arrived at the hospital. Gordon, Bobbi’s live-in boyfriend, asserts that markings may be from his attempt to administer CPR after finding her unconscious. Matters against Gordon worsened recently when friend Steven Stepho announced that the couple used heroin with him.
Bobbi Kristina Brown has already faced a number of tragedies in her young life. In 2012, her mother, Whitney Houston, was found unconscious in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, and later died. Just last year, she lost a close friend, 20-year-old Chelsea Bennett, to a drug overdose. A few months later, another close friend, Shelby Derrington, 21, died from a brain concussion.
