Bobbi Kristina Brown's aunt gives update on her recovery

By Sarah Kelsey

Little on Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition has been known since she was taken out of a medically induced coma back in February, but the 22-year-old's aunt, Leolah Brown, gave a public update on Facebook (via the Atlanta Journal Constitution), stating that she has "continued to make progress."

“We are allowing her to just continue healing in God’s Grace and Mercy. Please continue to be patient with us. You have no idea how much my brother Bobby and Bobbi Kriss are grateful and appreciates your kind words and prayers! In fact, we are all grateful to Almighty God for allowing us to still have Krissi with us! So with that said, let us keep our hearts and minds on Bobbi Kristina’s complete healing! While continuing in our patience. We love and appreciate you all! May God bless you all for your continued prayers and taking out your precious time to send such wonderful comments! May The Peace Of God Be With You.”

The positive support seems to echo recent news that the singer, daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was no longer on life support. Back in April, Bobby’s lawyer told US, "There has been improvement. Doctors have indicated that she will have a long life. However, Bobbi Kristina is presently embarking on a rehabilitation process and the quality of her life will not be known for years to come."

The statement was at odds with another update provided by Bobbi’s grandmother, Cissy Houston.

On May 11, she told Entertainment Tonight that her granddaughter’s condition had not improved and that her outlook was grim. Krissi, as she’s called by family, may have long-term brain damage.

"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."

She went on to thank everyone for their ongoing support.

"I'd like to thank everybody who was praying… Who really knows the worth of prayer and I'm sure it'll get through. You know, praying along with me. It's all I can tell you. I'm just waiting for whatever happens. We go to the hospital every day and pray and, you know, I talk to [Krissi] because she can still hear, and I rub her hand and what not. My daughter-in-law and my son, we do what we can do. The rest is, we can't do anything about because that's all up to Him. We know nothing about his plan."

In January, Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in a bathtub by her husband, Nick Gordon.
