Bobbi Kristina Brown Was Flown to Chicago to See Specialists Before Being Moved Hospice Care
Pat Houston flew her ailing niece Bobbi Kristina to Chicago to have her evaluated by experts before she was moved to hospice care, PEOPLE confirms.
The 22-year-old was hospitalized in January after being found unconscious and unresponsive in a bathtub in her Atlanta townhouse. Still unresponsive after months in the hospital, Bobbi Kristina was transferred to an Atlanta-area rehab facility in March and ultimately moved to hospice care last week.
Bobbi Kristina’s aunt Pat flew her to Chicago to be seen by doctors in a last effort to help her. The move was also to help her father Bobby Brown understand that every effort has been made to treat his daughter, a source tells PEOPLE.
Relatives gathered at Bobbi Kristina’s bedside over the weekend as her condition continued to deteriorate.

Visitors included Pat – who is married to Whitney’s brother Gary and serves as her legal joint-guardian – and Bobby’s sister Tina Brown. The women were seen embracing each other outside the care facility, crying.
“Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, [her] condition has continued to deteriorate,” Pat said in a statement last Wednesday, later adding, “We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now.”
