Melissa has been offering near-daily bulletins since the Fashion Police host was first hospitalized on Thursday, Aug. 28, when complications arose during an outpatient procedure on her vocal cords. After being admitted to Mount Sinai that morning, Rivers was placed in a medically induced coma. 

Doctors began bringing the star out of the coma on Sunday, Aug. 31, but as of Tuesday, Sept. 2, she was still on life support
