It's comforting to know that Joan Rivers has her daughter Melissa Rivers by her side during this tough time.
Despite Joan having been placed in a medically induced coma after she stopped breathing during minor throat surgery, and the recent announcement that she's currently on life support, there might be a silver lining to the comedienne's medical situation.
"It's a slow process, but she's on the road to recovery. She's getting better. Don't believe all this ridiculous speculation."
Well, that is certainly some good news!
In addition, this source commented on what a great support system Melissa has been during this awful time:
"She is a rock. She is calmer than I've ever seen her. All these reports about doomsday are not true. She is her mother's daughter and she's tough as nails. She's the person keeping everyone together…She's focused on one thing: Her mother's health."
We continue to hope for Joan's speedy recovery! Get better soon!
