Joan Rivers has been moved from the intensive care unit at Mount Sinai hospital to a private room. Her daughter, Melissa, issued a statement yesterday confirming that her mother has been moved to a private room and thanking everyone for their love and support. She also said that her mother remains on life support.
Melissa has been by her mother’s side throughout her medical crisis. She’s making sure that Joan is well taken care of. While in the hospital and not yet conscious as far as we know, Joan has been getting her hair and makeup done. Her room has also been decorated by a professional party planner, and her dogs have been allowed to visit her.
Joan Rivers is getting the regal treatment when she was upgraded to a larger suite, according to a friend.
Rivers hospital room “got decorated by celebrity wedding planner Preston Bailey with flowers, bows, plants,” close longtime pal Cindy Adams says, who adds that the legendary entertainer has with a white faux mink blanket with her and “Oklahoma!” on CD in the room.
The gossip columnist revealed the 81-year-old comedian is still getting her hair and makeup done and Mount Sinai, where Rivers is located, is allowing her dogs in to see her.
Adams was photographed leaving the medical center in New York City on Sept. 1.
Rivers was transferred to a private room from the intensive care unit after one week Thursday.
I wonder if Melissa has been doing her mom’s hair and makeup for her or if they hired a professional to come in. I also wonder if she called the party planner or if the decorator is long time friend of Rivers and asked to help. I wouldn’t be surprised if Joan has had many friends volunteer to help in her time of need. It’s sweet that everyone is taking care of her.
While it looks like the family may have to make some tough decisions soon, the news about Joan is not all negative. Entertainment Tonight reports that a family source says that tests show that Joan has brain function and the Melissa is remaining positive. Their source says that Melissa “refuses to acknowledge any other outcome than Joan coming out of this.” We’re thinking of her and Joan and hoping Joan pulls through.
