Cissy Houston is clarifying Bobby Brown's comments days after he told fans Bobbi Kristina Brown is "awake."

The 22-year-old's grandmother said in a statement Monday that Bobbi is no longer in a medically induced coma, but she remains unresponsive and has "global and irreversible brain damage."

"Meeting with the doctors and understanding that she can live in this condition for a lifetime truly saddens me," Houston said. "We can only trust in God for a miracle at this time."

A source also told CNN Monday that Bobbi is in the same neurological condition that she has been in for nearly three months. She reportedly doesn't respond to visitors or familiar voices, her eyes don't follow a person around the room and she has a tracheostomy in her throat.

Two days before these reports, Bobby told fans during a concert in Texas that Bobbi Kristina's condition had improved. "I can say today, Bobbi is awake. She's watching me," he said.

His attorney also went on to clarify his statement Monday, saying "Doctors have indicated that she will have a long life. However, Bobbi Kristina is presently embarking on a rehabilitation process and the quality of her life will not be known for years to come."

"We thank everyone that supports Bobbi Kristina and God is hearing our prayers," he continued. According to People, Bobby's wife Alicia Etheredge-Brown, also spoke out, saying he was in an "emotional state" when he addressed the crowd.

Bobbi Kristina was found unconscious in a filled bathtub in her Roswell, Ga. home Jan. 31 and was in a medically-induced coma for three months.
