Not much news is coming from the hospital room of Joan Rivers
. What is known is that she is on life support after being placed in a medically induced coma. No one is telling if Joan would be able to survive on her own if she was taken off life support or if she is going to stay on it for some time to try and recover. No one is telling if she will recover. The family is planning on suing the doctor who performed the throat surgery that landed the 81 year old in the hospital after she stopped breathing and suffered cardiac arrest during what was called a minor procedure on her vocal chords. Melissa Rivers says that the family is touched by all the support for Joan and the hospital where she is located has been overwhelmed by the number of flowers and cards sent to the Fashion Police host.
