Bobbi Kristina Brown remains on life support, is breathing with the help of a ventilator, and has not regained consciousness since she was admitted to the hospital after being found facedown and unresponsive in the bathtub of her Atlanta area home on Jan. 31.

Many are wondering whether Whitney Houston's only daughter can pull out of her coma and have a complete recovery? According to the family, friends and even doctors, it's just impossible to tell at this point.

"She's got some color back," a family member told People magazine, "but she's still not responding."

Much of the confusion over the status of Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition comes from the family itself, with various family members reporting different things.

As for Bobby Brown, who has remained silent for the most part on his daughter's condition, has shot down many reports about his daughter's situation as "egregious" and "false."

In a Facebook post, Bobbi Kristina's cousin Jerod Brown said that doctors "don't see any hope."

On the other hand, Bobbi Kristina's aunt Leolah told FOX 5 Atlanta that while Bobbi Kristina is "still on life support," she is "opening her eyes ... There are a couple more things that she's doing but Krissi is doing well right now."

Another family member insists, "She is not brain dead. There is hope."

People magazine cites a doctor who told them that her hope for recovery depends on how long she went without air.

"Even minutes [without air] can be grim," said neurologist Eli Zimmerman of Massachusetts General Hospital.

In all reality, it is just too difficult to determine if Bobbi Kristina will recover.

And while there are varying reports on the exact condition of Bobbi Kristina, the family stands united amid the confusion.

"Everyone may be giving different stories, but that's because it's so confusing," the family member told People.

"No one is trying to mislead anyone. Everyone is still praying for her. That's what matters."

Meanwhile, Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend Nick Gordon, who is reportedly the focus of an investigation into the events surrounding the morning Bobbi Kristina was found, is suing for the right to visit his girlfriend at the hopital after he was banned from her room following a heated argument with Bobbi Kristina's family.
