Meanwhile, her daughter, Melissa, has kept quiet on the details of her mother’s condition over the past few days, only saying, “We are keeping our fingers crossed.”

Rivers’ network, E!, has been tight-lipped about her condition, but they told FOX411 on Tuesday that filming had been suspended on the series Rivers’ co-hosts, “Fashion Police.”
