Bobbi Kristina Brown's Breathing Tube Has Been Removed

It's been nearly one month since Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unconscious and lying face down in her bathtub. Whitney Houston's 21-year-old daughter has remained in a medically induced coma since that time, while rumors about her deteriorating condition and whether her family will take her off of life support continue to spread like wildfire. We finally have what we believe is an accurate update: Bobbi's doctors have reportedly removed her from the ventilator that has helped her breathe for the past few weeks—but her condition remains unchanged.

Before we jump to conclusions, doctors have made it clear that it was necessary to remove Bobbi's breathing tube in order to prevent infection. She will now reportedly be ventilated through a hole in her throat, and medical experts say this is an indication that she will likely remain in this same state for weeks and months, rather than days and hours.

In other words, the young woman's condition is unchanged and there is no sign that she will recover in the near future.

We are also learning that doctors at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta are attempting to slowly lift Bobbi out of her coma, but that the extent of her injuries is unknown.

Dad Bobby Brown has continued to ask for privacy while he and relatives keep vigil over his daughter. He has also made it clear that certain members of his family are attempting to cash in on Bobbi's tragedy and that many are providing false information to the media about her condition.
