Bobbi Kristina Brown continues to fight for her life in an Atlanta hospital as her father, Bobby Brown, and other members of her family stay by her side.

Bobbi Kristina underwent a tracheotomy this week in what family members say is a "normal procedure" for someone who is going to be on a ventilator long-term.

"The tracheotomy is a different place for the tube to go," a family source tells People. "Everything else remains the same. It's a waiting game. The family is hoping and waiting."

However, there is still no report on any change in Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition.

The source added, "She is still critical and we don't know what the outcome will be. No one is giving up on this kid."

Another family source told People that the operation on Bobbi Kristina Brown did have effects on the family, however.

The source said, "There's a medical reason behind [the tracheotomy], but it's making things clear to everyone how serious this is. Even if she wakes up, there's a possibility that this could do some damage to her vocal cords, I hear."

The source added, "This is happening because there are no other options. If there was another way, Bobby would do it."

There may be no more than a remote chance for Bobbi Kristina to survive, and attention has fallen to what will happen to Bobbi Kristina Brown's (Whitney Houston's) fortune should she not make it.

Whitney Houston's will named Bobbi Kristina Brown as the sole heir to her estate. But, Bobbi Kristina was never meant to inherit Houston's fortune all at once. T

The will stipulated that Bobbi Kristina would receive the money, a reported minimum of $20 million, in a series of payments over nine years. She got 10 percent at age 21, and she will get a 30 percent distribution at 25, and the remainder when she turns 30.

Attorney Bruce H. Gaynes makes clear that the will says, "if Bobbi Kristina were to die unmarried, without children of her own and had left no will and testament of her own, the estate would be divided among Whitney's living relatives."

That would be Whitney Houston's siblings and her mother.

The will does name Robert Brown, aka Bobby Brown, however, their divorce nullified him as a beneficiary.

The big question is, will Nick Gordon be entitled to receive any of Bobby Kristina Brown's money?

Chances are slim, according to Gaynes. Despite many a social media reference as "husband" and "wife", lawyers for Bobby Brown say the two never married.

Unless Nick Gordon can produce a marriage certificate, he is entitled to nothing. And even if he can, he is only entitled to Bobbi Kristina's money, not Whitney Houston's future estate payments.

But, a marriage isn't likely, given the fact that the family has barred Nick Gordon from seeing Bobbi Kristina Brown in the hospital. If they were legally married, there would be nothing they could do about it, as he would have every right to see her.

What do you think about the future of Bobbi Kristina Brown's assets, should she not pull through?
