Nearly five months after she was first hospitalized on Jan. 31, Bobbi Kristina Brown has been moved into hospice care, Pat Houston revealed in a statement to Us Weekly on Wednesday, June 24.
"Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition has continued to deteriorate," Houston said of her 22-year-old niece, the only child of singers Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston.
"As of today, she has been moved into hospice care," Pat shared on behalf of the family. "We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God's hands now."
As previously reported, Bobbi Kristina has been under constant medical supervision since January, when she was found facedown and unresponsive in a tub at her home near Atlanta, Ga. Initially hospitalized in a medically induced coma at North Fulton Hospital in Roswell, Ga., she was later moved to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, and then to an undisclosed rehabilitation facility in March.
Updates about her condition have been vague, but grandmother Cissy Houston said in May that she was "not progressing at all" in rehab. "I'm just waiting for whatever happens," Cissy told Entertainment Tonight. "We go to the hospital every day and pray and I talk to her because she can still hear and I rub her hand. We do what we can do. The rest is…all up to Him."
More recently, Bobbi Kristina's father Bobby Brown — who was named a co-guardian with Pat last month — told Us in a statement that he was "making decisions" and working with Pat for the medical care of his daughter. "Right now we are focused on Bobbi Kristina's medical prognosis and the criminal investigation," he said on June 19. "Whoever had a hand in causing my daughter's injuries needs to be brought to justice."
