A day after news broke that Bobby Brown and Pat Houston were named co-guardians of Bobbi Kristina, Cissy Houston is letting the world know that her granddaughter is still in the same unresponsive condition as she was a few weeks ago.
“She’s the same, she’s not progressing at all,” Houston told Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier on Saturday.
“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.”
Houston will perform Saturday evening at McDonald’s Gospelfest in New Jersey, singing “The Blood that Jesus Shed for Me.” She tells ET that the songs’ lyrics hold special meaning to her today.
“Way back on the cavalry,” she quotes, “The blood that gives me strength from day to day shall never lose its power.”
Bobbi Kristina, the only child of Houston’s daughter Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, remains hospitalized since she was discovered unresponsive in a bathtub on Jan. 31st.
Krissi is no longer in a medically induced coma, but according to reports, her condition has not significantly improved.
As far as Cissy’s thoughts on Bobby and Pat being named co-guardians of her granddaughter:
“It came alright, It was fine,” Cissy said of the news. “We’re a family…that works together for the best. You want the best for whomever or everybody we can…We can be on the other side too if you make us be but we are not going to do that. There’s no reason for that. That’s why I’m concerned. So, that’s the end of that.”
According to a source close to the family, the co-guardianship states that Bobby will no longer be able to make decisions about Bobbi Kristina’s medical care on his own. Pat and Cissy have control over the estate inherited by Krissi when her mother Whitney died in February 2012.
ET’s source also reports that doctors have told the family that Krissi suffers from irreversible brain damage, and that nothing can be done to better her condition. The family has been turned down by several hospitals to transfer Krissy, though she no longer remains on life support.
“I’d like to thank everybody who was praying,” Cissy says. “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.”
