Bobbi Kristina Can Move Her Eyes: Sources

Bobbi Kristina Brown's family had been in discussions with doctors about pulling life support after the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was found unresponsive in a bathtub Saturday, Page Six reports, but sources are saying those talks have been halted now that the 21-year-old has shown "minimal response" to tests of brain activity. TMZ reported yesterday she was doing "significantly better," citing sources who said the swelling on her brain was down, oxygen levels in her brain were up, and she was able to "move her eyes," a good sign. But, the gossip site says, the situation is still "touch and go" as Brown was submerged in the tub and without oxygen for 2 to 5 minutes, and could have neurological damage.

"Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family," her family said in a statement yesterday. "As her father already stated, we are asking you to honor our request for privacy during this difficult time. Thank you for your prayers, well wishes, and we greatly appreciate your continued support." TMZ also reports that, according to family sources, police found nothing in a first search of Bobbi Kristina's house, but a second, more thorough, search yielded drugs. Law enforcement sources previously said they believed drugs to be behind the incident. (More Bobbi Kristina Brown stories.)
