Bobbi Kristina Moved to Emory Hospital
CNN: — According to CNN, Bobbi Kristina Brown was moved to Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital on Monday, sources close to the family said, but the daughter of singers Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston remained in a fight for her life after being found facedown in a bathtub over the weekend.
Her family has been tight-lipped on the 21-year-old’s condition after her father asked the media to respect the family’s privacy.
After she was discovered unresponsive in her home in Roswell, an Atlanta suburb, she was rushed to the hospital where doctors placed her in a medically induced coma. As of late Monday, she remained on a ventilator in the intensive care unit, a source close to the family said.
The status of her brain function won’t be known until the sedatives are reduced, the source told CNN.
“Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family. As her father already stated, we are asking you to honor our request for privacy during this difficult time,” the Houston family said, thanking her supporters.
The source close to the family told CNN that Brown’s eyes opened and closed a few times Monday, but that doctors told family members not to read too much into that movement.
Doctors were trying to reduce the sedatives to check Brown’s brain function, but decided to keep her in the coma for now, the source said
It was not immediately clear what medical significance these reported events have in Brown’s case.
She “was not breathing” when a man identified as her husband found her Saturday morning inside her townhouse in the Atlanta suburb.
He called 911 and performed CPR until emergency crews arrived and took over, said police spokeswoman Lisa Holland.
The spokeswoman said when Brown was found, she was “unresponsive, meaning not breathing, no heartbeat.”
In scanner traffic, emergency services could be heard describing an “ECHO-level response” — urgent and life threatening — with “possible cardiac arrest.”
“Twenty-one-year-old female in the bathtub, facedown. PD’s (police department’s) en route.”
Brown was taken to a local hospital, where “she is still alive and breathing. Other than that, I don’t know her condition,” Holland said over the weekend…
Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown who is currently fighting for her life, was never married, a lawyer for Brown has told members of the media.
“We are currently investigating the events that led to the hospitalization of Bobbi Kristina,” Christopher Brown of Brown & Rosen, legal counsel for Bobby Brown, told TMZ and Access Hollywood late Tuesday. “To correct earlier reports, Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon.
Kristina in your thoughts and prayers…Prayer works!
