Bobbi Kristina Brown Undergoes Tracheotomy
A source has revealed that doctors performed a tracheotomy on Bobbi Kristina Brown this week to rearrange her breathing tube in what a family source calls a “normal procedure.” ….The source says the procedure does not indicate a change in status.
“It’s a normal procedure to have the tracheotomy because if you have a breathing tube down there for a long time, it can cause an infection,” said the source.
“She is still critical and we don’t know what the outcome will be,” the source added. “No one is giving up on this kid.”
Brown, 21, has been hospitalized since she was found unresponsive in her bathtub on Jan. 31. This past weekend, a source told PEOPLE her condition remains grim as family including father Bobby Brown and grandmother Cissy Houston keep a bedside vigil.
“There’s a medical reason behind [the tracheotomy], but it’s making things clear to everyone how serious this is,” says the source. “Even if she wakes up, there’s a possibility that this could do some damage to her vocal cords, I hear.”
