The medical situation surrounding Bobbi Kristina Brown continues to grow bleaker, as reports say doctors have told her family that little can be done to save the 21-year-old.

A family source told Fox News that "it's now a matter of when the family wants to let go," as the odds of a recovery grow longer with each passing day.

Doctors have "left it up to the family as to how long they want to keep her alive," sources told the outlet, adding that Bobbi Kristina's relatives are "refusing to acknowledge the worst-case scenario," holding out hope for a miracle.

Brown family friend Debra Antney presented a slightly more optimistic picture, telling Extra TV that while "it ain't over with yet," Bobbi Kristina's "not out of danger" by any means.

"She blinked her eyes, she did do that," Antney said.

Antney added that the ailing young woman's father, Bobby Brown, is understandably "a wreck," and that she was "thankful Brown's got a good wife" in Alicia Etheredge "that stands right by him, you know, and he has a little support team there."

As previously reported, Brown was transferred this week to Emory University Hospital. She remains brain dead, in a medically-induced coma, after she was found face-down in the bathtub of her suburban Atlanta home Jan. 31, nearly three years to the day her mother Whitney Houston died under similar circumstances. Authorities said that during a sweep of the house, drugs were recovered.
