Bobbi Kristina on life support

Posted

Specializes in Med Surg, Homecare, Hospice.

I'm reading reports stating her family has been told there is "no hope " but "they are leaving it up to the family to decide when to take her off life few support". Here we are again...This young lady has been trying to join her mother since the day she was found dead in health tub.Let her go in peace and with dignity.

I think there may be legal issues since she had "unexplained injuries on her body." Although I agree that families frequently aren't given the informations and guidance they need to make these difficult decisions.

Once the Gtube goes in, she'll be another Jahi.

That's what I was worried about. With Jahi, the family wanted to wait until after the holiday to remove life support, this time they wanted to wait until after Bobby Brown's birthday this weekend. I hope the only thing holding up letting this poor girl go is the investigation. Such a sad, sad, story.

I read (from online tabloid, so take that into account) that they will take her off life support tomorrow which is apparently the anniversary of whitney's death.

I think it is touching that they will remove her from life support on the day of her mother's death.

Just too bad no one intervened after Whitney Houston admitted, on international television, to doing drugs in front of her kid. Maybe Bobbi would still be alive. But fame, money, and power kept her insulated, and now her child has paid with her life. Personally I find the whole thing a disgusting societal failure.

Oh man.....are we in for another Jahi?

Aunt: Bobbi Kristina is 'doing better'

"Leolah went on to say she's 'hopeful' about Krissi's health. 'There are so many signs showing us that she will be OK. Krissi is fine.'"

If that's true, well great. I just highly doubt it when she was found face-down in a full bathtub after an unspecified amount of time.

As sadly tragic as this situation is, I want to point out that the vast majority of children who were parented by addicts grow up to live normal lives free of addiction or suicide.

I had an addicted parent who used to use drugs in front of me. I do not condone this behavior. In fact, I remain very resentful toward this parent for selfishly putting the urge to get high over my need for a developmentally normal childhood. However, the millions of children in the US who didn't hit the parental lottery statistically aren't going to take their own lives.

I heard somewhere that the recent Angela Bassett biopic about her mom was a possible contributing catalyst to her tragic event.

Hmm, just read online that BK was involved in a car accident 4 days prior to her drowning in the bathtub. This gets creepier by the day.

I also read that she has "unexplained injuries" and the investigation is focusing on her boyfriend. Said boyfriend had apparently gotten into it with the uncle who manages her trust fund mere days before. I think we're going to find out this was no suicide or overdose, but something much more sordid, tawdry, and unfortunately common. Poor Bobbi. :(

Maybe the unexplained injuries will be explained by the car accident . . . perhaps other mysteries will be explained by the accident as well. I haven't read anything stating Bobbi is brain dead but sounds like she will soon die from organ failure. (But you know media news!) Sounds doubtful she and Jahi will be roomies. (I bet NJ will be reconsidering their definition of "dead" soon or that state may be full of high-rises filled with ventilated corpses.)

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought her family was taking her down the same path as Jahi. If the tabloid reports are true & she's brain dead, I hope her organs are giving out as well.

But I saw Bobbi Kristina's father wanting to do the same thing as Jahi's mother. Not because of money or greed, I think he just doesn't want to let go of his little girl. He lost his wife & now he's about to lose his daughter.

If Bobbi Kristina does pass I hope it's a wake up call for Jahi's family.

I just heard on the news that she's getting a tracheostomy and that the doctors are "reversing her medical induced coma" due to improvements... hmm.. I hope this is the case but I'm highly doubtful...

Yes I just read the same. I do not hold out much hope that she will be what she once was.

Move her to New Jersey now before the state goes on "brain-dead but still alive" divert.

So what ever happened to Bobbi Kristina? Is she still on life support? Did she pass away? Did she move in with Jahi McMath?
