Joan Rivers is reportedly in even worse condition after complications from throat surgery, and is currently on life support.
According to reports, the comedienne, was placed on life support after she stopped breathing during a routine throat surgery. It’s been said that Joan’s daughter Melissa may have to decide whether or not to keep her iconic mother on life support. If Joan“can’t recover and live a full and active life, she would rather be gone,” a friend told the New York Daily News. “She would never want to be a burden on anyone.”
Joan was previously rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC after the complications from her surgery. It was later said that she was in stable condition under a medically-induced coma.
“I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother,” Melissa said in a statement to Mount Sinai on Friday. “She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.”
So sad! I’m really hoping that Joan pulls through. Thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends at this difficult time.
