Last week reports surfaced that the 21-year old suffered a violent seizure after she was taken out of her medically induced coma by her doctors . She has since been induced to stop the seizures and is back in a coma
“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.”
As Bobbi Kristina’s birthday approaches wishes for her recovery are being posted daily by well wishers on her social media . Ellin LaVar of LaVar Hair Designs in Harlem and the longtime hair stylist of Whitney Houston says, “I am speechless and saddened by the circumstances but I am keeping Bobbi Kristina and Cissy in my prayers.” Adds LaVar, “I am praying that God will bring Bobbi Kristina through this difficult situation.”…..by DEBRA LEWIS-BOOTHMAN
FRIDAY’ S CUTE PIC OF THE DAY on crownheightsmom goes to Magnolia, the heart-stopping, cute-as-ever little 20-month old happy tyke who along with her BABY stopped me in my tracks on Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights, Brooklyn on Thursday afternoon.
Meet MAGNOLIA . She literally brought the sun out today. In fact I think her cuteness is the reason the expected snow storm for Thursday went bye-bye!
I spotted the lil darling taking her baby out for a walk on Eastern Parkway. Along for the stroll was mum Natalie and dad Matthew. The 9-year Brooklyn residents have been residing in Crown Heightsfor the past three years. Before Magnolia came along the gorgeous couple were living in Do-or-die Bed-Sty!…
Brooklyn is fast becoming that borough young families are flocking to. Crown Heights, Prospect Heights, Lefferts Gardens and Flatbush are the new favorite areas for new renters and buyers. Don’t get me wrong there is still interest in Fort Green, Bedford Stuyvesant, Ditmas Park, Sunset Park, Park Slope and Boroum Hill areas .
Let’s not even begin to talk culture. Brooklyn is a gumbo pot of cultures. It is the epitome of what New York stands for. For young families moving to Crown Heights you can walk down the street and bump into someone from every caribbean island known to man, meet young hip fashionable Hasidics, or a Korean grocer selling the freshest fruits and vegetables this side of Chinatown, or even talk politics with the Yemen corner store owner . The cultures my friend in Brooklyn are infinite .
So as our little cutie pie Magnolia continues on her walk here’s to wishing her a wonderful year and hoping when she hits her 2 year mark on May 19 that she stays as sweet as ever for mummy and daddy .
Enjoy your walk little Magnolia and take in all that your wonderful neighborhood has to offer. Soak it up!
I am in Love and man, oh mannn, have I fallen hard!
Yup, ya heard me right. There is a new man in my life . He is such a puppy so maybe it’s puppy love.
I don’t know. All I know is that I just love everything about him.
I was thinking that it’s his cuteness because he takes full advantage of this factor and it renders me useless. But, he is learning that the cute face isn’t working for him all of the time .
It is hard not to love him. He has all the lovable qualities a girl wants. He’s loyal. Yes, ladies I said loyal. You can trust him- although I wouldn’t trust him near my plate of food because boy can he eat!
He’s soft and warm all over which is great for hugs . He gives wet kisses and you can even play with his ears, with permission of course!
Meet my new love. He goes by the name of Hiro aka Hirothewolf.
The love affair. It started in late May and has since grown in leaps and bounds just like he has too. In fact too quickly if you ask me. I still yearn for the return of his puppy stage.
We all immediately melted at the little cotton fluff. At 4-weeks
Keeping him healthy and his coat thick and white as snow. Daily brushing, massages and hugs and of course food and water. Kudos goes to Trader Joes because they carry a wonderful dog food brand that’s healthy and affordable. Top this off with raw veggies and fruits like carrots, bananas and peeled apples from the farmers market .
His love is infectious. Just ask the kids.He does everything they do…..like skateboarding.. He’s even in the Dillon Cooper music video KNUCKLE UP.
An unconditional love between us that will go on and on.
For most of us Thanksgiving morning begins at the crack of dawn getting up to season that turkey that has been sitting in the fridge after being rubbed down and washed in lime and salt.
Coming from Barbados, West Indies that Turkey will have to be seasoned well in seasoning that consists of a mixture of spices including chopped/minced onions, garlic cloves, salt, peppers, scallions, thyme and a half or whole scotch bonnet pepper( depending on how spicy you like it). Mixed together in a bowl take little handfuls and spread throughout every crevice and pocket of that turkey. The end result? One tasty seasoned bird that ‘s fit for a King.
I hope you try this seasoning recipe . It’s good for all meats, poultry and fish. If you do, let me know with a comment.
Sharing this special day with delicious food and drink with family and friends close is what’s its all about.
