Bobbi Kristina Brown has slowly been weaned off the medication used to keep her in a coma. But she has not woken up yet and is still on life support, People magazine reports Wednesday.
Brown, 21, has been in a coma since Jan. 31, when she was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her suburban Atlanta home. While what happened to her remains under investigation, her future is equally uncertain. Despite People reporting that Brown's condition has remained "severe," some medical experts believe that this could be a very good sign for the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown.
Subhashini Ramesh, a professor of neuro-critical care at Georgia Regents University who is not treating Brown, explained that this step could mean Bobbi Kristina is getting better. "They take them off a medically induced coma for two reasons – because the underlying problem has improved, or to simply get a sense of what the patient is able to do for themselves," Ramesh told People.
The family is reportedly hopeful that this will lead to good news. Things haven’t been going well for the Brown family. Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend (whom she had previously referred to as her "husband") Nick Gordon was banned from seeing her in the hospital, and the family allegedly believes he was involved in her accident. Family members, like cousin Jerod Brown, have also been fighting over speaking to the press about Bobbi Kristina’s health. Most recently, Us Weekly reports that Bobby Brown canceled his Australian tour so he could be by his daughter’s side.
