Irreversible brain damage

IllnessMakes Statement

Houston issues a statement saying that Brown’s prognosis is unclear.

While she is no longer in a medically induced coma she has a tracheotomy and according to the doctors she has global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive…Meeting with the doctors and understanding that she can live in this condition for a lifetime truly saddens me. We can only trust in God for a miracle at this time.
