Joan Rivers’ family has announced that doctors began the process of lifting the legendary comedienne out of her medically induced coma on Sunday.
Though the news seems hopeful, doctors are still not sure what Joan will be like if or when she wakes up.
“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.”
As they wait to see if Joan will wake up, her family is shifting their focus to getting justice for the 81 year-old icon.
“Shock and upset is turning to anger, and they are looking for someone to blame,” said a source who went on to say that the family is considering a lawsuit against the surgeons who were operating on Joan when she stopped breathing mid-surgery.
Despite her anger and devastation, Joan’s beloved daughter Melissa sounded hopeful in a short statement she released on Sunday.
“We are keeping our fingers crossed.”
