Bobbi Kristina Brown's aunt Leolah Brown posted a new update about her niece's condition via Facebook recently as the R&B scion remains unresponsive, five months after she was found facedown in a bathtub in her Georgia home.
"We are allowing her to just continue healing in God’s Grace and Mercy," Bobby Brown's sister wrote on her Facebook page (via the Atlanta Journal Constitution). "Please continue to be patient with us. You have no idea how much my brother Bobby and Bobbi Kriss are grateful and appreciates your kind words and prayers! In fact, we are all grateful to Almighty God for allowing us to still have Krissi with us!"
After four months of remaining in a medically induced coma, the one and only daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was said to be awake and no longer on life support in April, according to her dad. Bobby's lawyer, Christopher Brown, told Us in a statement: "There has been improvement. Doctors have indicated that she will have a long life. However, Bobbi Kristina is presently embarking on a rehabilitation process and the quality of her life will not be known for years to come."
Leolah echoed those sentiments in her recent Facebook post, writing: "So with that said, let us keep our hearts and minds on Bobbi Kristina’s complete healing! While continuing in our patience. We love and appreciate you all! May God bless you all for your continued prayers and taking out your precious time to send such wonderful comments! May The Peace Of God Be With You."
Meanwhile, Bobbi Kristina's grandmother Cissy Houston has also publicly discussed her granddaughter's condition, candidly revealing that the prognosis is rather grim, contrary to the Brown family's updates.
"I have just returned from visiting my granddaughter Bobbi Kristina in the hospital and while she is no longer in a medically induced coma she has a tracheotomy and according to the doctors she has global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive," Houston told Us in a statement on April 20. "Meeting with the doctors and understanding that she can live in this condition for a lifetime truly saddens me. We can only trust in God for a miracle at this time."
Weeks later, Houston told Entertainment Tonight that her granddaughter was "not progressing at all."
Bobbi Kristina was found facedown and unresponsive on Jan. 31, in an eerily similar manner as her mother, who died in February 2012 at the age of 48. While she remains unresponsive, Bobby Brown is expecting another baby with his wife Alicia Etheredge. The couple recently celebrated their baby shower at their home.
