Bobbi Kristina Brown is starting to show signs of improvement three days after being found unresponsive in her Georgia home's bathtub. A source told People magazine Tuesday that the swelling in the 21-year-old's brain has gone down. While that’s a change for the better in her condition, a family member cautioned that the daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston isn’t out of the woods just yet.
"The doctor says that that by itself isn't the smoking gun that she's getting better, but it's still a good sign,” the insider confessed. “But she's still not reacting.”
On Saturday, the aspiring songstress was found lying face down in a tub of water. She was discovered by her husband Nick Gordon, who performed CPR until authorities arrived at the scene. Brown was then rushed to a hospital and placed in a “medically induced coma,” according to Us Weekly.
It was questioned if the incident was caused by drugs, considering narcotics were blamed for the tragic death of Whitney Houston, who accidentally drowned in a hotel bathtub in February 2012. During the preliminary investigation of Brown's home by police, no drugs were found “out in the open.” But when authorities searched the home more thoroughly a second time, several items were seized, according to TMZ. A source claims that the items discovered were drugs.
An insider revealed to CNN that since Brown was admitted into the intensive care unit, she has opened and closed her eyes. Doctors have warned family members not to read too much into the eye fluttering. However, family and friends of Houston’s daughter remain hopeful as they take turns visiting, speaking to her just in case she can hear.
"If she's in there somewhere, we want her to hear us," a family member told People. "We keep it positive. We tell her that God loves her, that we love her. That America is praying for her and that everyone loves her."
Although a rep for the Houstons told Us Weekly the family wanted privacy during this difficult time, Brown’s cousin, Jerod Brown, told People that they are all appreciative of the support and well wishes from fans. “Please, everyone continue to pray for BK," he said.
