Joan Rivers remains in serious condition at Mt. Sinai Hospital, but “she is receiving the best treatment and care possible,” according to her daughter Melissa.
“My mother would be so touched by the tributes and prayers that we have received from around the world,” Melissa said in a statement to E! News. “Her condition remains serious but she is receiving the best treatment and care possible. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts as we pray for her recovery.”
The host of E!’s “Fashion Police” was rushed to the hospital after she stopped breathing during a throat procedure at her New York doctor’s office. There, the 81-year old comic was placed in a medically-induced coma.
Melissa Rivers flew across the country from Los Angeles to be by her mother’s side.
