According to TMZ Joan Rivers is now on life support requiring the use of machines to stay alive:
According to our sources, the family will have to decide in the next couple of days whether to keep the 81-year-old on life support. We're told the family remains hopeful that if they do decide to turn off the machines, she will make a turn for the better and fight through it.
Rivers was rushed to the hospital after she stopped breathing during throat surgery on Thursday.
