According to People, Bobbi Kristina Brown, in hospice care since earlier this week, is receiving visits from her distraught family members preparing for the worst.

Bobby Brown's sisters Tina and Leolah Brown, as well as Pat Houston, who is married to Whitney Houston's brother, were all seen at Peachtree Christian Hospice near Atlanta. In a noteworthy departure from previous protocol, the women from both sides of Bobbi Kristina's family have been visiting her at the same time, and have even been seen exchanging hugs. This marks a big shift from the past, when the Houstons and Browns have feuded.

Bobbi Kristina was moved into hospice care because her organs have been failing. She is no longer receiving any mechanical assistance, such as help breathing from a ventilator, and that medications and alternative nutrition have also been ceased. Under these conditions, someone in Bobbi Kristina's state would be expected to pass, though it could take days or weeks.

Pat Houston, one of Bobbi Kristina's legal guardians, said in a statement last week, "Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, [her] condition has continued to deteriorate ... We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God's hands now."
