"We are keeping our fingers crossed," Melissa Rivers, said in a statement released to the Associated Press, thanking people who have expressed support for the 81-year-old comedian.
Legendary comedienne Joan Rivers is still on life support at a New York City hospital two days after being admitted when she stopped breathing during a medical procedure.
As of right now, she is completely reliant on machines to stay alive.
Joan was undergoing throat surgery Thursday at a clinic, reportedly on her vocal chords, when she stopped breathing. She was quickly rushed to NYC's Mount Sinai hospital, where she remains.
Daughter Melissa arrived that same day to visit her mother, and now it seems that she may be tasked with making that one decision no one wants to make.
Sources who spoke to TMZ claim that the family will have to decide in the next couple of days whether to keep the 81-year-old on life support.
Some family members believe if they take her off, her condition will improve and she will fight through and win this battle.
And hasn't Joan Rivers always been a fighter?
