Joan Rivers Being Brought Out of Induced Coma (Report)

Joan Rivers Being Brought Out of Induced Coma (Report)

Joan Rivers is reportedly being brought out of a medically induced coma and her family has “fingers crossed” that she will make it out of this scary situation.

“The waking-up process has begun and will take until Tuesday,” a source close to the family told the New York Daily News. “There is real concern that the part of the brain that controls motor skills may have been compromised, leaving her as either a vegetable or in a wheelchair.”

Joan‘s family is also reportedly considering legal action against Yorkville Endoscopy, where the legendary comedian was having a routine procedure done on Thursday before she stopped breathing and had to be rushed to the hospital.

“The night before, she was performing and now she is on life support,” the source added. “An 81-year-old should not have that procedure as an outpatient. Very ill advised.”

We continue to send our thoughts and prayers to Joan and her family during this difficult time.
