Unfortunately, there’s no good news to report about Bobbi Kristina‘s health at the moment. The last we heard, Bobby Brown was telling everyone his daughter was “awake”, though he clearly only meant that metaphorically, and then he applied for guardianship over her estate. That title was given to him and Cissy Houston jointly, and it seems necessary since Cissy revealed this weekend that there have been no improvements in her granddaughter’s condition.
“She’s the same, she’s not progressing at all,” Houston told Entertainment Tonight‘s Kevin Frazier on Saturday. “She’s not gone yet, but you know, whatever the Lord decides, I’m ready for her… I have nothing to do with that. That’s His job. It’s His territory, you know? And I understand it.”
Houston will perform Saturday evening at McDonald’s Gospelfest in New Jersey, singing “The Blood that Jesus Shed for Me.” She tells ET that the songs’ lyrics hold special meaning to her today.
“Way back on the cavalry,” she quotes, “The blood that gives me strength from day to day shall never lose its power.”
Well, the whole thing is, you can keep a person on life support for years when they’re still a vegetable. They’re medically alive, but they’re not alive in any other way. Eventually, that difficult decision may have to be made by the family. That’s not for any of us to decide when that is, of course, but this tragedy needs some form of conclusion so they can try to begin and find peace and closure.
