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

The insider continued, "It's a normal procedure to have the tracheotomy, because if you have a breathing tube down there for a long time, it can cause an infection. She is still critical and we don't know what the outcome will be. No one is giving up on this kid."

A second family source added, "There's a medical reason behind [the surgery], 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 chords, I hear."

The insider claimed “there are no other options. If there was another way, Bobby would do it."
