Bobbi Kristina Brown Remains In a Coma Despite Media Reports
By Rosalyn Oshmyansky
While multiple outlets are reporting that Bobbi Kristina Brown has been taken out of her coma, ET has learned that these headlines are not true.
"She is still in a coma, still critical," family sources tell ET.
Just last week, ET reported exclusively that doctors were reducing Bobbi Kristina's medication in an attempt to bring her out of the coma. A source said that she was making improvements with stable vital signs and that her organs are not failing. However at this time, the 21-year-old remains in a coma and on life support as of Wednesday.
It's been over three weeks since the daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston was placed in a medically induced coma and on life support since being found unresponsive in a bathtub and rushed to a hospital in Rosewell, Ga. on Jan. 31.
Legally, the final decision to take Bobbi Kristina off of a ventilator is up to her father Bobby.
Dr. Julian Bragg, a neurologist at Midtown Neurology in Atlanta, who is not one of Bobbi Kristina's doctors, spoke to ET about the road ahead should Bobbi Kristina regain consciousness.
"After spending more than two weeks in a medically induced coma, or for any cause, the body goes through a number of changes," Dr. Braff says. "There is a significant decrease in muscle strength both in terms of moving the limbs and in terms of breathing. Often people require extensive strengthening not only in being able to sit, stand and move around, but even simpler things like swallowing and breathing."
