Joan Rivers is getting the royal treatment in her room at Mount Sinai Hospital, with her hair and makeup still getting done by professionals even while she remains on life support. Rivers, 81, is also staying in a room that was decorated just for her. Rivers was rushed to the intensive care unit at the New York hospital last week after a botched vocal procedure caused her to stop breathing.
Rivers was transferred from the intensive unit and upgraded to a larger suite Thursday, a friend tells the Daily News. The hospital space was “decorated by celebrity wedding planner Preston Bailey with flowers, bows, plants," her close friend Cindy Adams says. The room also includes a white faux mink blanket. In addition to a luxurious room and getting her makeup and hair professionally done, her dogs are allowed to visit her.
"My mother ... is being kept comfortable. Thank you for your continued support," daughter Melissa Rivers said in a statement this week.
Rivers was rushed to Mount Sinai last week after going into cardiac and respiratory arrest during a visit to her doctor. “I know my mother would be overwhelmed by the continued outpouring of kindness and I want to thank everyone for keeping us in their prayers," Melissa Rivers said in a statement at the time. "On behalf of my mother and our family, we are extremely grateful for all the love and support we’ve received.”
