Melissa Rivers: “On behalf of my mother and our family, we are extremely grateful for all the love and support we’ve received”
Melissa Rivers provided an update Tuesday on her mother, Joan Rivers, saying she remains on life support.
“On behalf of my mother and our family, we are extremely grateful for all the love and support we’ve received. At this time she does remain on life support,” Melissa Rivers wrote.
“I know my mother would be overwhelmed by the continued outpouring of kindness and I want to thank everyone for keeping us in their prayers,” she added.
Rivers was taken Thursday to Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York after she stopped breathing during throat surgery at her doctor’s office.
The 81-year old was later placed in a medically-induced coma. Rivers’ representatives did not respond to requests for comment on anonymously sourced reports Monday that she was being brought out of the coma.
