Bobbi Kristina Brown, the 22-year-old daughter of Bobby Brown and Late singer, Whitney Houston, has “global and irreversible brain damage” and has been unresponsive since she was taken off the medical life support.
Brown’s grandmother, Cissy Houston, made this disclosure on Monday, April 20, 2015 after she paid her a visit.
Brown was discovered unresponsive in a bathtub at her home in the Atlanta suburb of Roswell, Georgia, on Saturday, January 31, 2015.
Earlier in February, 2015, Brown was placed in a medically induced coma and doctors at Emory University Hospital subsequently removed her breathing tube which allowed her to be breathe through a hole in her throat.
She was later transferred to a rehabilitation facility in the middle of March where she has been until recently.
Her grandmother in a statement on Monday, April 20, 2015 said, “Meeting with the doctors and understanding that she can live in this condition for a lifetime truly saddens me.
“We can only trust in God for a miracle at this time.”
Houston’s statement matched that from a source with knowledge of Brown’s condition, who told CNN that she remained in the same neurological state she has been in for nearly three months.
The source added that she neither respond to visitors nor familiar voices, and that she also has a tracheostomy in her throat.
Brown’s father, Bobby Brown, on Saturday, April 18, 2015 told a cheering audience at Dallas’ Verizon Theatre that his daughter’s condition had improved.
He said, “I can say today, Bobbi is awake. She’s watching me,” Brown told the audience at .
The family’s attorney, Christopher Brown, made it known that Brown’s condition has improved but that the kind of life she will lead remains to be seen.
He said, “Doctors have indicated that she will have a long life.
“However, Bobbi Kristina is presently embarking on a rehabilitation process, and the quality of her life will not be known for years to come.”
It would be recalled that her mum, Whitney Houston died in 2012 after she was also found in a bathtub.
Investigations linked her death to an accidental drowning, with heart disease and cocaine use as contributing factors.
