A source tells Us Weekly that it’s a “normal procedure after a certain amount of time on a breathing tube” to help prevent infections that can develop when bacteria is allowed to enter the lungs through the ventilator. Currently, Bobbi Kristina is in a medically induced coma at Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital.
According to E! News, Bobbi’s family is in the process of bringing her into consciousness.
“The integrity of the events that led to the hospitalization of Bobbi Kristina must remain uncompromised,” the statement read “Various members of the family have provided media interviews, however, none of them are approved visitors to see Bobbi Kristina.”
“We continue to request privacy in this matter,” he added. “We thank everyone that supports Bobbi Kristina and God is hearing our prayers.”
