Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition has improved after she was found unresponsive and face down in a filled bathtub over the weekend.

Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's daughter is "fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family," the Houston family told People in a statement. "As her father already stated, we are asking you to honor our request for privacy during this difficult time. Thank you for your prayers, well wishes, and we greatly appreciate your continued support."

Earlier in the day, Bobby Brown told Just Jared in a statement, "Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time."

According to TMZ, Bobbi is doing "significantly better" after she was revived and placed in ICU Saturday. While her condition is reportedly still "touch and go," and she continues to breathe with a ventilator, sources told the site, doctors determined Monday morning that the swelling on her brain had gone down.

A source also said Bobbi can "move her eyes," and the oxygen levels in her brain have increased significantly – four times better than Sunday.

The big problem is Bobbi was deprived of oxygen from about two to five minutes while she was in the tub, and doctors are afraid she will have neurological damage, according to TMZ. Sources also told People that it would "take a miracle" for her to recover.

The 21-year-old's husband, Nick Gordon, and a friend found her unconscious in the tub in her Roswell, Ga. home Saturday. Bobbi wasn't breathing and Nick immediately started CPR until police and paramedics arrived.

News of the incident came just a couple of weeks before the third anniversary of her mother's death. Whitney was found in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel after she died from accidental drowning on the eve of the Grammys in 2012.
