“These seizure are not new,” a source close to the families tells crownheightsmom.com exclusively. “She has been having them,” adds the source.
Daily visits to the 21-year-old’s bedside come from family on both sides – the Browns and the Houstons- including her father Bobby Brown and her grandmother Cissy Houston, the pair, whom have not been seen together since Whitney’s funeral in 2012
. Cissy, who arrived on Feb 6 had been a constant, although recently there has not been sightings of her. Cissy reportedly had been singing to her granddaughter and even celebrate her birthday early with roses .

Cissy also only stayed a week a source close to the Brown and Houston families reveals to crownheightsmom.com exclusively. “Cissy left Atlanta on Feb 12. She’s back in New Jersey.” Adds the source, “People will probably ask, why isn’t she still there with her but Cissy is not that close to her granddaughter plus people must understand she’s old and this takes a toll.”Also adds the source, “There is not much Cissy can do there, at the end of the day Bobby is there and any decisions made regarding Krissi’s health and well-being will come from him.”
Meanwhile, second cousin, Dionne Warwick, 74, has been unable to make it to Atlanta to see Bobbi Kristina . Says a Houston family source, “Dionne had a fall in January and hurt her ankle and is now back in the hospital, but just to get rehab on the ankle.” Adds the source, “She was admitted because she wouldn’t keep off her feet.” Warwick was reported to have fallen in her bathtub in January. She was just re-admitted to the hospital recently in order for the rehab and physical therapy to begin and to work..

A parent will love and protect their children by all means necessary and Bobby Brown is no stranger to this . In 2011 the R&B singer when questioned about Bobbi Kristina’s by PEOPLE
responded, “I am protecting my daughter.” Since his arrival to Atlanta, Brown has been a constant at his daughter’s bedside and even delayed an upcoming Australian tour
to be by her side. His protectiveness now though many may say has come a little too late. Says a source, “She needed that fatherly protection constantly the last three years.”
