Bobbi Kristina Brown Undergoes Tracheotomy in the Hospital

Bobbi Kristina Brown Undergoes Tracheotomy in the Hospital

Bobbi Kristina Brown has undergone a tracheotomy this past week to rearrange her breathing tubes.

“The tracheotomy is a different place for the tube to go,” a family source told People about the procedure, which they call “normal.” The source added, “Everything else remains the same. It’s a waiting game. The family is hoping and waiting.”

“It’s a normal procedure to have the tracheotomy because if you have a breathing tube down there for a long time, it can cause an infection,” the source continued. “She is still critical and we don’t know what the outcome will be. No one is giving up on this kid.”

“Even if she wakes up, there’s a possibility that this could do some damage to her vocal chords, I hear.”

Our continued thoughts are with Bobbi Kristina Brown and her loved ones.

    My prayer’s are with this family.

    It is very difficult to remove someone from life support. As a health care worker I see this almost on a daily basis and each case is different. With Joan Rivers as soon as her daughter learned that her mother was brain dead and realized that there was no “miracle” in her mother’s future she removed her from life support. However, I sympathize with every family who must eventually make this decision. This family must be given the patience that they need and eventually come to a decision to put this young lady at rest.

    I have read 2 stories.. this one which says that Bobbi Kristina undergoes a tracheotomy & I also read this one: https://www.yahoo.com/music/s/removed-ventilator-bobbi-kristina-browns-condition-unchanged-source-200557157.html that states that Bobbi Kristina has been taken off the ventilator and her condition is unchanged. It does not mention that she undergoes a tracheotomy. Which story is the truth?

    we did the same thing. removed it the day after. it’s a hard decision, but what are you holding on for? the person is gone. not sure why they are keeping her on life support, but the family isn’t right in the head anyway. they all have motives, likely fueled by money

    God Bless you for your work!
    I had to make the hard decision to take my beloved husband off life support and it was the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life. Cannot say enough about the kind hospital staff, and I sent a note to them about one particular nice who was especially kind.
    I wish her well, but it honestly does not sound too good for her future.
