Joan Rivers' Family Releases Another Statement: 'We Are Keeping Our Fingers Crossed'

While Joan Rivers remains in the hospital, her family remains hopeful.

In a new statement released on Sunday (August 31), the 81-year-old comedian’s daughter Melissa said, “We are keeping our fingers crossed.”

Joan is still in serious condition after being admitted to Mount Sinai Hospital on Thursday (August 28) in New York City’s Upper East Side. She stopped breathing and went into cardiac and respiratory arrest while a doctor was checking on a chronic problem with her vocal cords.

Since then, celebrities have taken to social media to send their well wishes.

Our thoughts are with Joan and her family during this difficult time. We will continue to update you on the situation.

    come on, Joan. Don’t leave us.


    Back in the 1980s I sold a few monologue jokes to Joan Rivers.
    Which makes me an expert on the subject.
    Her current bed ridden state is confirmation of the dying Palermo mother in Moonstruck, 1987.

  • die Joan DIE

  • Cruel woman Joan

    This woman actually wished death for innocent kids
    dying in Palestine.
    People who says she wasn’t mean and she was good
    human being but what about the nasty remarks that
    she made for innocent Palestinian kids dying. WASN’T
    THAT MEAN? actually that was disgusting. Kids are
    innocent no matter they belong from a place or
    group you hate the most. And for people saying they
    can’t believe about some mean remarks of people
    about her dying. but what about the mean
    comments she made for innocent kids dying?
    Imagine it could be anyone’s kids or family dying in
    some horrible incident. I understand some people
    hate Palestinians but wishing death to innocent kids?
    seriously??? I myself won’t even imagine wishing
    death to my worst enemies child let alone

    time has come and your time will come too. People
    like you need to die as soon as possible and the world
    would become a little better place to survive, hahaha.
    And go serve your master Lucifer who is preparing you
    for HELL. LOL

  • Hell is waiting for you Joan

    Once upon a time there was this witch called Joan
    rivers, she use to haunt people in their sleep and give
    them nightmares through her lame jokes and plastic
    horrible face. It was said that if she actually appears
    in someone’s dream they would die of heart attack.
    She haunted people for more than 80 years but like
    every devil her time came too. So Finally she’s dying,
    and many people in this world are actually praying for
    her to DIE and never return again to haunt them. So
    that the world would be a little better place. but like
    every devil she has her followers too who are wishing
    her to get well soon so that they will not loose their
    devil leader. But not even they can save her because
    her time has come to die in pain.

    Wishing death on someone that you don’t even know.. Unbelievable. Take the speck out of you own and judge not lest Ye be judged the way you judge others is the way you will also be judged. Don’t waste your time crossing your fingers but pray instead in the name of the Father Son and Holy Spirit that’s the only way you’ll get your prayers answered.

  • 81

    81 YEARS is a good run in life.
    If she does not make it I am sure she feels she has lived her life to the full with few regrets.

  • Dawn Fusaro

    I wish her a speedy recovery and for her family to be strong and positive. No matter how long you live when your time is up you realize that we are only here for a short time. Cherish every precious loved one and every passing moment. All we are given is THIS moment. Live it with love and be kind.
