Joan Rivers daughter speaks on mother's current condition

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Sep 2, 2014

Although it's been four days since comedienne Joan Rivers, 81, went into cardiac and respiratory arrest during throat surgery, her family has offered little update on her current condition.

On Sunday, Melissa Rivers, Joan's daughter and co-star of their reality show, "Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?," says in a statement, "Thank you for your continued love and support," reports CNN. "We are keeping our fingers crossed."

Three days prior, Melissa said Rivers was "resting comfortably" despite reports that she was in a medically-induced coma and listed in critical condition in New York's Mount Sinai Hospital.

Rivers was allegedly undergoing a minor elective procedure.
