Joan Rivers Taken Out of a Coma?
It has been quite the traumatic week for Joan Rivers and her family. During a surgery on her throat, the comedienne went into cardiac arrest, and reportedly also stopped breathing. Her daughter, Melissa, rushed to be by her side in the hospital. Since then, Melissa has been updating Joan’s fans via social media on her status. The latest update made it sound like Joan had been taken out of her medically induced coma.
“My mother has been moved out of intensive care and into a private room where she is being kept comfortable. Thank you for your continued support.” – Melissa Rivers 9/3/2014
This may or may not mean that Joan is still on life support, or that her condition is any better. She had been placed in a medically induced coma following her cardiac incident during throat surgery.
I really cannot imagine celebrity gossip without Joan Rivers. She was a TRUE trail blazer for women comedians, and even me, a woman blogger that dabbles in the celebrity gossip world. She started the whole “Who are you wearing?” on the red carpet! You may not agree with her, but she really is amazing and we send our prayers to her, her family and her doctors.
Get better Joan.
