Bobbi Kristina Brown has been in a coma since being discovered unconscious in her bathtub back on January 31st. Now some reports say her grandmother, Cissy Houston, thinks it’s time to remove Bobbi Kristina from all forms of life support.
Last week doctors tried to bring Bobbi Kristina out of her coma, but she suffered seizures when they did so, prompting them to put her back into a medically induced coma once again.
Doctors have attempted to take Bobbi Kristina out of the medically induced coma she was placed in after being found unresponsive in a bathtub in her home in Roswell, Georgia on Jan. 31, however that attempt failed as Bobbi K was reported to have suffered violent seizures during the procedure. A family source told PEOPLE, “She was taken off the drugs, but she began having violent seizures. She is being put back into a coma.”
Bobbi Kristina has been on life support over the last few weeks and this latest effort was an attempt to check in on her status. Dr. Subhashini Ramesh, a professor of NeuroCritical Care at Georgia Regents University, explained the reasons someone would be taken out of a medically induced coma: Either “the underlying problem has improved” or the doctors want to “get a sense of what the patient is able to do for themselves.”
The seizures are devastating, certainly for the family, who has been praying for Bobbi’s condition to turn around. A source tells PEOPLE, “This is a horrible setback. Everyone was hopeful that this was the sign that she’d turned the corner. We were so optimistic. Bobby is taking this so hard; he was sure this was going to be a good day. But please, everyone needs to pray for Krissi. I don’t care what religion you are, or if you have no religion at all. Send your thoughts, your prayers, your well-wishes. Send everything you’ve got. Please.”
We’re praying for Bobbi Kristina.
