Joan Rivers’s loved ones said Sunday that they remain hopeful about her recovery three days after she stopped breathing during a surgical procedure.
“We are keeping our fingers crossed,” her daughter, Melissa Rivers, said in a statement, thanking people who have expressed support for the 81-year-old comedian.
Joan Rivers has been unconscious since her arrival three days ago at a New York City hospital, but her daughter expressed hope today that the 81-year-old comedian will recover from her illness.
Joan is still in serious condition after being admitted to Mount Sinai Hospital on Thursday (August 28) in New York City’s Upper East Side. She stopped breathing and went into cardiac and respiratory arrest while a doctor was checking on a chronic problem with her vocal cords.
Since then, celebrities have taken to social media to send their well wishes.
