Cissy Houston Gives Emotional Update to Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Condition

Cissy Houston opens up about her granddaughter Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition, and it is heartbreaking.

The mother of the late Whitney Houston revealed the 22-year-old’s condition to Entertainment Tonight on Saturday (May 9, 2015). Although she is no longer in a medically-induced coma, her condition is unchanged.

“She’s the same, she’s not progressing at all. She’s not gone yet, but you know, whatever the Lord decides, I’m ready for her… I have nothing to do with that. That’s His job. It’s His territory, you know? And I understand it.”

Doctors have also told the family that Bobbi Kristina suffers from irreversible brain damage.

On Friday (May 8, 2015), Bobbi Kristina’s father Bobby Brown and her aunt Pat Houston were named co-guardians. A joint statement made by Brown and Houston’s counsel read:

We are delighted to inform the public that the court has appointed Bobby Brown and Pat Houston as co-guardians of Bobbi Kristina Brown (‘Krissi’). Both Mr. Brown and Ms. Houston are jointly responsible for decisions related to Krissi’s care and medical needs…

Both parties are delighted with the court’s decision and are working harmoniously to ensure Krissi receives the best possible medical care. We are appreciative of the manner in which Judge Jeryl Debra Rosh handled this matter.

Of the co-guardianship, Cissy remarked, “It came alright, it was fine. We’re a family… that works together for the best. You want the best for whomever or everybody we can… We can be on the other side too if you make us be but we are not going to do that. There’s no reason for that. That’s why I’m concerned. So, that’s the end of that.”

Houston added a word of thanks to everyone for their support since her granddaughter’s hospitalization on January 31, 2015.

I’d like to thank everybody who was praying. Who really knows the worth of prayer and I’m sure it’ll get through. You know, praying along with me. It’s all I can tell you. I’m just waiting for whatever happens. We go to the hospital every day and pray and, you know, I talk to [Krissi] because she can still hear, and I rub her hand and what not. My daughter-in-law and my son, we do what we can do. The rest is, we can’t do anything about because that’s all up to Him. We know nothing about his plan.

She performed on Saturday evening at McDonald’s Gospelfest in New Jersey, where she sang “The Blood that Jesus Shed for Me,” a song in which the lyrics hold special meaning for her.

“Way back on the cavalry,” she quotes, “The blood that gives me strength from day to day shall never lose its power.”
