Joan Rivers

Out of Intensive Care ...

But No Sign of Improvement

9/3/2014 9:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Joan Rivers has been moved out of intensive care -- but that does not necessarily mean her health has improved greatly.

Melissa Rivers just released a very guarded update about her mother, saying ... "My mother has been moved out of intensive care and into a private room where she is being kept comfortable."

It's not a great sign that she's been moved to a private room from intensive care -- where she would be more closely monitored by doctors and nurses. 

As TMZ first reported ... Joan has been on life support since being rushed to Mount Sinai hospital in NYC last Thursday.

We don't know if she's still on life support.

Foolish headline. How can you be out of intensive care yet still on life support and how do you show improvement when still on the machine?

Would do E! network a huge favor if she just remains in the hospital the rest of her life

We want her to live and blame the clinic where she went that better go out of business. This is not allowed to happen knowing it's a possiblity and not having someone near or equipment ready to steady her heart. Sue their ass. All of them involved and put them out of business forever. She has to live. Joan was vibrant and alive and so entusiastic about life, a good role model for elders and all of us young 'uns too. This should never have happened and our hearts go out to Melissa. Bad enough we would miss Joan but to lose her beloved mother she is so close to, horrific. Money isn't an option but go for their juggular. They deserve to suffer when they've killed Joan by their indifference to her plight. There should have been something around just in case anything happened and they know it. I can't say enough, I'm so angry!

Back in 1996, my Dad had a heart attack and his heart was restarted at the hospital. Infortunately, he never woke up. Instead, he remained in a coma for almost 2 months... I kept hoping that he was going to wake up, but looking back on it, I realize that he was pretty much "gone" ever since the heart attack happened... I'm afraid that it seems that Joan Rivers is in the same situation... It's very difficult, because you keep hoping that your loved one will "pull through" and you will be granted "a miracle".... I wish the family much strength and peace .

Well working in nursing usually what being kept "comfortable" means is doses of liquid ativan and morphine until they drift away ... They feel nothing and are basically already gone ... I hope for a miracle for her family, but if she's ready to go let time take it's course
