This could be good news!
Joan Rivers has been in a medically induced coma since last Thursday, after going into cardiac and respiratory arrest while she was having a procedure on her vocal cords.
As of Sunday, doctors were bringing Joan out of the coma, but they’re not sure what to expect on the other side. A source explained:
“The waking-up process has begun and will take until Tuesday. There is real concern that the part of the brain that controls motor skills may have been compromised, leaving her as either a vegetable or in a wheelchair.”
In the meantime, Joan’s daughter Melissa Rivers is thinking of suing the hospital where the 81-year-old’s initial procedure was botched! A different insider said:
“Shock and upset is turning to anger, and they are looking for someone to blame. The night before, she was performing and now she is on life support. An 81-year-old should not have that procedure as an outpatient. Very ill advised.”
Melissa gave another statement on Sunday, where she told people, “We are keeping our fingers crossed.”
We’ll keep ours crossed too! And send lots of positive thoughts the family’s way.
Joan is a fighter, so hopefully Tuesday brings good news!
