Bobbi Kristina Brown is still in a coma after being found face down in her bathtub, Jan. 31 and doctors are praying for a miracle. HollywoodLife.com has learned that the family isn’t focusing on the chance that she might not make it but rather on the treatment she will need if she does.
Bobbi Kristina: Facing a Lifetime of Treatment After Brain Trauma
Bobbi, 21, might have gone without oxygen for several minutes while under water in her bathtub. Luckily, her boyfriend Nick Gordon discovered her and began administering CPR but a source tells HollywoodLife.com that since she went without air she could have suffered major brain damage that could impact her ability to lead a normal life going forward.
“Things are getting better to where living is an option, which is great news that the family is hearing but the family has also been been told she will never be the same again,” our source says. “There is going to be tons of rehab expected that might last a lifetime. She has major brain trauma that they still have to deal with and it will be very challenging to adapt to and deal with for all involved.”
Bobbi Moved To New Hospital In Atlanta
Bobbi was being treated at North Fulton Hospital but was transferred to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
She has opened and closed her eyes a few times according to reports but doctors have said that could largely have been in part due to seizures she was having. Bobbi’s dad, Bobby Brown released a statement telling the world that there is an investigation surrounding what happened on the morning she was found and clarified that she had never married Nick.
“We are currently investigating the events that led to the hospitalization of Bobbi Kristina,” Christopher Brown of Brown & Rosen LLC told Us Weekly. “To correct earlier reports, Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon.”
HollywoodLifers, our thoughts are with Bobbi and her family during this difficult time.
