The daughter of the late Whitney Houston has been taken out of the medically induced coma that doctors put her in at the end of January of this year. After being found unconscious by her boyfriend Nick Gordon in a bathtub, Bobbi Kristina has been in the hospital surrounded by family member in hopes of a recovery. Doctors have taken her off the medication that allows her to be in a coma hoping for the best.

While Bobbi Kristina has been in the hospital, her boyfriend Nick took the time to vent via twitter:

Subhashini Ramesh, a professor of NeuroCritical Care at Georgia Regents University, explains the reasoning to PEOPLE. “They take them off a medically induced coma for two reasons – because the underlying problem has improved, or to simply get a sense of what the patient is able to do for themselves.”

Dr. Ramesh, who is not treating Brown, says that her recent tracheostomy signifies one bit of positive news. “Obviously, she did not meet the criteria for brain death if she underwent a tracheostomy,” Dr. Ramesh says. “She still could have a devastating injury, though.”

For now, Bobbi Kristina remains on life support, which includes a ventilator and feeding tube. “We’re hoping for a significant change soon,” says the family member, “but we know that it may not change anything.”

While awaiting new developments in her condition, the family is trying to ignore the ongoing drama with Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon. “He can say whatever he wants to say,” the family member tells PEOPLE, referring to Gordon’s recent social media posts.

“We are leaving the investigation in the hands of the authorities,” the family member continues. “Our focus has always been Bobbi Kristina’s health and recovery. That’s all that matters to us right now.”
