Her family has been tight-lipped on the 21-year-old’s condition after her father asked the media to respect the family’s privacy.
After she was discovered unresponsive in her home in Roswell, an Atlanta suburb, she was rushed to the hospital where doctors placed her in a medically induced come. As of late Monday, she remained on a ventilator in the intensive care unit, a source close to the family said.
The status of her brain function won’t be known until the sedatives are reduced, the source told CNN.
“Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family. As her father already stated, we are asking you to honor our request for privacy during this difficult time,” the Houston family said, thanking her supporters.
The source close to the family told CNN that Brown’s eyes opened and closed a few times Monday, but that doctors told family members not to read too much into that movement.
Doctors were trying to reduce the sedatives to check Brown’s brain function, but decided to keep her in the coma for now, the source said.
The source added that Brown had some seizures on Monday.
Bobbi Kristina, in her own words
“(Houston) made me promise several times to look after Krissy … and, Mom, I will never ever, ever break that promise,” Gordon told the entertainment show “Extra” afterward, saying Houston “just treated me like she gave birth to me.”
It was unclear whether Gordon came home Saturday morning to find Brown in the bathtub or if he had been in another part of the house overnight, Holland said.
Police have obtained a search warrant to look through the house, but that’s standard procedure, she said.
Concern for Brown surged again after news broke.
Music director Michael Bearden sent along “healing energy to the daughter of a late great friend.” Songwriter Diane Warren tweeted, “I hope Bobbi Kristina gets the help she needs.”
“Poor thing,” Warren wrote. “Almost 3 yrs to the day her mom passed and the same thing almost happened to her.”
