Comatose comedienne Joan Rivers was shifted Wednesday from the intensive care unit to a private room at an Upper East Side hospital, her daughter announced.
Melissa Rivers, in a two-sentence statement, offered no indication why the decision was made to move the “Fashion Police” star.
Her mom, 81, has been kept alive by life support since the weekend.
“My mother has been moved out of intensive care and into a private room where she is being kept comfortable,” read the statement. “Thank you for your continued support.”
The tart-tongued Rivers was brought to the Mount Sinai Hospital last Thursday after going into cardiac and respiratory arrest during a doctor’s visit.
She remains surrounded by family and friends as Melissa Rivers — who flew in immediately from California last week — considers the options for her mother’s care.
Sources told the Daily News that the best case scenario at this point included months of rehabilitation that would keep the perpetually busy comedienne sidelined.
