“The latest statement from Joan Rivers’ daughter gave no new information about the comedian’s condition three days after she was rushed to a New York hospital.
““Thank you for your continued love and support,” Melissa Rivers said Sunday. “We are keeping our fingers crossed.”
“Rivers, 81, stopped breathing during throat surgery at a Manhattan medical clinic Thursday morning, according to the New York Fire Department. She apparently suffered cardiac and respiratory arrest during a procedure.
“She was listed in critical condition in New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital, where paramedics took her by ambulance.
“Her daughter’s initial statement, made public late Thursday when she arrived at the hospital after a flight from Los Angeles, said her mother was “resting comfortably.”
