Family and friends of Bobbi Kristina Brown are entering their fourth day of waiting for any positive information from doctors that could hint toward her possible survival. The 21-year-old daughter of R&B singing couple Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston was found face down and unresponsive in her bathtub this past Saturday and was taken to Fulton Hospital just outside of Atlanta, Ga., where she remains in a medically induced coma.

Brown’s husband, Nick Gordon, and a friend discovered her unconscious body just after 10:00 a.m. on Saturday and administered CPR until ambulances arrived at their home in Roswell, Ga. While Brown was reportedly alive and “fighting for her life” at the hospital on Monday, doctors are unsure as to exactly how long she was deprived of oxygen and what effect that could have had on her.

3-Year Anniversary Of Whitney Houston’s Death

Yet another tragic event for the Brown family comes less than two weeks before the anniversary of Whitney Houston’s death. Houston, who was found submerged in a bathtub at a hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Feb. 11, 2012, died in an eerily similar fashion as her daughter. Brown repeatedly expressed how hard she was hit by the death of her mother.

"I can sing her music, but to hear it now, I can't," Bobbi Kristina told Oprah Winfrey in a 2012 interview. "I can hear her voice telling me, 'Keep moving, baby. I got you.' She's always with me. I can always feel her with me. She used to always say, 'Do you need me?' And I said, 'I always need you.'"

While the Los Angeles County coroner’s office originally ruled Houston’s death to be an “accidental drowning,” it later added “the effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine.” A toxicology report also revealed traces of marijuana, Xanax, Benadryl, and Flexeril. Although an initial search of Brown’s home by the Roswell Police Department revealed no drugs or evidence of drug use, drugs were discovered during a secondary search of the home, TMZ reported.

Coping With The Loss Of A Parent

The death of a parent is always a devastating moment for any child, no matter what age they are. Certain factors often intensify the grief felt by the child, including the relationship between parent and child, both parent and child’s age at the time of death, and the suddenness of the parent’s death. Common emotion and reactions to the death of a parent include confusion, anxiety, remorse, fear, frustration, yearning, and depression.

Brown, who was 19 at the time of her mother’s death, not only dealt with the suddenness of her mother’s death, but also dealt with her mother dying at the relatively young age of 48. Above all else, the bond that Brown shared with her mother and how open she was with her feelings over the loss of her mother may have intensified her grief.

A study conducted by psychologists from Stanford University found that people who dwell on the loss of a spouse or parent for too long tend to be at a higher risk for long-term depression compared to people who recover from their grief within a month. Researchers found that, on average, people who had lost a loved one were faced with four additional stress factors that year which accurately predicted if they would be depressed six months after the death of a loved one.

"Depression is a normal response to the loss of a spouse or parent," lead researcher Susan Nolen-Hoeksema said in a statement. "But there are big differences in people as to how long that depression lasts. Most people show significant recovery from a grief-related depression within six months, but people who are still very depressed after six months are at high risk for remaining depressed for a very long time after that."

The Houston-Brown family remains by Brown’s side and report that she is still “fighting for her life.” Countless movie stars, musicians, and entertainers have extended their thoughts and prayers for the family while they deal with their second tragedy in the past three years.
