Cissy Houston has broken her silence about Bobbi Kristina‘s condition and how she’s handling it.
It’s been nearly two months since Bobbi slipped into a coma after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub at the end of January. Doctors at Emory University have tried their best to revive her in that time, but nothing they’ve done has gotten her to wake up.
Bobbi was taken to a rehab facility for long-term care last weekend, and WBLS was curious whether there had been any improvement in her condition. Sadly, Cissy reported that nothing has changed for Bobbi and the family’s confidence that she’ll recover is beginning to fade.
“She’s the same. We’ve moved her now to a place for rehabilitation,” Cissy told WBLS. “But you know, still not a great deal of hope. We’re praying.”
While Cissy has already done all the praying she’s going to do about Bobbi’s medical status, she won’t discourage others from praying for her granddaughter. As a matter of fact, she’s petitioning for more of them.
“I don’t pray like that. I give it to God one time because I know He’s able. And I cannot change a thing,” Cissy stated. “So I’m asking everybody, just pray to the Lord who we know can do something about it.”
When she heard that a WBLS dj had encouraged get listeners to send up some prayers for Bobbi, Cissy graciously said, “I know it and I feel every bit of it. I truly do.”
As hard as it may be to let go of Bobbi just three years after her own daughter Whitney Houston passed away, Cissy is emotionally preparing herself for that possibility.
“If He works a miracle, thank God,” said Cissy. “If it happens the other way, I’m alright.”
