Bobbi Kristina Brown's closest relatives are preparing to decide whether the daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown should be taken off life support, Radar Online reports.
According to the celebrity news site, the family are scheduled to meet in the coming days, with the final decision on the medical treatment of the 22-year-old daughter made by her father.
Brown has been in a medically-induced coma since she was found face down in a filled bath at her home on 31 January. Her boyfriend Nick Gordon administered CPR until the ambulance arrived on the scene and continued to carry out lifesaving procedures.
A neurologist familiar with similar cases claims that doctors are no longer obligated to continue treating the Brown since the six week window has passed.
"Patients' families can decide if they want to push forward with continued medical treatments, even if their loved one is in a devastated situation and have little hope for survival," Dr. DeGeorgia, from University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland tells Radar. "You would usually abide by the family's wishes, unless you decide that they are brain dead and that they have no brain function."
Earlier in March, Dr Rafael Ortiz, director of the Center for Cerebrovascular Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital, told The New York Daily News that Brown's chances of recovering from a coma are significantly improved due to her age.
"In someone's young we definitely give her a chance to recover as much as possible, so it is not surprising that they're keeping her sedated for a long time," he said.
In February, the reality star, who is on life support at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, suffered seizures when doctors attempted to revive her from her comatose state.
The harrowing incident echoes the death of her mother on the eve of the 2012 Grammys. Houston passed away on 11 February 2012, when she was found unresponsive in a bath of a Beverley Hills hotel. A coroner later concluded her death was as a result of accidental drowning, though heart disease and cocaine use were contributing factors in her death.
Meanwhile, Gordon has appeared on Dr Phil for a TV intervention after posting a series of worrying messages on Twitter that appeared to suggest he is suicidal. In an emotionally charged interview, the 25-year-old Gordon is seen breaking down and threatening to kill himself as Phil questions his mental health.
Gordon, who has reportedly been banned from visiting Brown as police continue investigating the events leading to her being rushed to hospital, explained that he has suffered mental anguish and panic attacks.
"I miss Krissy and Whitney so much. I want them back."
