Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of the late legendary American singer Whitney Houston, still remains in a medically induced coma nearly 10 weeks after she was found unresponsive in her bathroom on Jan. 31. Now her family may soon have to make difficult decisions.

According to previous report by Gospel Herald, one attempt was made to lift 22-year-old Brown out of her coma, but it ended in violent seizures. Family members, including grandmother Cissy Houston, have acknowledged that while there is little hope of recovery, they are determined to wait for any changes in her condition.

"It's on our mind, what we should do," a family member said. "We don't know the answer."

The unnamed family member told Steve Helling of People that the longer Brown stayed unresponsive, the more likely permanent effects could remain.

"If she's in there somewhere, and I hope to Jesus that she is, what would happen if she woke up? I don't know," the family member said. "She hasn't been walking or even sitting up."

Despite the lack of progress from Brown, Helling reported that the family had no plans to remove her from life support, refusing to give up on her.

"You have to put yourself in Bobby's position," the source said. "If there was a 1 percent chance that she was in there, wouldn't you wait? Your daughter would deserve that."

According to a report filed by TMZ, her father, Bobby Brown, has been by her beside. However, he is scheduled to play three shows in Australia with Treach and Kay Gee of Naughty by Nature at the end of May.

"The dates are make-ups for shows he cancelled back in March," TMZ wrote. "Even though Bobby wanted to postpone again, so far, the promoters are holding him to his contractual obligation."

A relative indicated to Helling that Bobby was not interested in performing the shows in Australia at this time.

"He doesn't care or want to do it," the relative said. "It's more important to him that he spends his time with Krissy. So we'll see what happens."

According to Helling, there have been reports about the family squabbling over the inheritance left to Brown left by her mother, which is supposedly around $20 million. However, a family source told Helling that money is not an issue within the family.

"Bobby is not thinking about the money and never has been," a family source said. "I want to think that Pat and Gary [Houston] aren't thinking about the money either."

The family source added that everyone wants "what's best for Krissy."

"It doesn't matter if she has $20 million or $2 in the bank," the source said. "We love her and want her to recover."
