Joan Rivers remains in serious condition but is receiving the best treatment possible ... so says her daughter, Melissa Rivers.

Melissa just released a statement thanking everyone for their support ... adding that Joan would be touched.

TMZ broke the story ... Joan was rushed to Mount Sinai hospital in NYC Thursday morning after she stopped breathing during a procedure on her vocal cords.

After originally being listed in critical condition ... she's been "resting comfortably" and surrounded by family since late Thursday afternoon, according to her daughter.

Hate to see anyone suffer, but karma is real and it just might be biting Joan's ass.

Got to love Joan..she is a strong woman who can tell it like it really is with her own spin on it..she was strong when her husband killed himself, she worked hard and overcame the "boy's club" on TV, she has raised a beautiful and smart daughter and a well behaved grandson...Joan, we don't ever want you to go, but you have really left your mark here on Earth...GET WELL and shoot for 10 more..love you

I don't care what anyone says. I think she's a great comedian. I hope she fully recovers. The world needs people like her to keep things not so serious all the time. Humor is the only way to keep life from being too much sometimes and Joan Rivers helps provide that.

Sounds like she had a polyp removed on a vocal cord..I see these people make cracks about more plastic surgery...I doubt that her family would agree to that at her age or she could find a dr to do it..I think her plastic surgery days are over...it'll come out, and I could be wrong..let's see..

This is what happened. She went in to look at her vocal cords because of hoarseness. Polyps what have you... she has underlying heart disease and her heart stopped the procedure, totally unrelated to anything being done during the procdure. It took several minutes to get a heartbeat, she lost oxygen to her brain for over four minutes. They had been preforming tests to see if there are any brain waves. I feel they already know by this afternoon there is no brain function. So she is on life support and they are waiting for lawyers, saying good byes, arrangements , etc... before they shut it off on Saturday morning and make an official statement. Thats it, the end..

Whatever    

Joan is a hypocrite. She trashes other people's kids but don't you dare say anything about her untalented, horse faced daughter and she will go off. Joan's own husband committed suicide to get away from her, so that should tell you something.

She's a hack comic. By far, this is the funniest thing she's ever done...
