Cissy Houston heads to Bobbi Kristina's bedside

Bobbi Kristina Brown's grandmother, Cissy Houston, has arrived at her hospital bedside, a source close to the family tells USA TODAY.

Bobbi Kristina's dad, Bobby Brown, has been by her Emory University Hospital bedside. And we know that various other family members from Whitney Houston's side of the family are there - although not Nick Gordon, the man who may — or may not be — her husband. A restraining order was taken out against him by Bobbi Kristina's aunt Pat.

But, finally, today, Cissy Houston, 81, Whitney's mom, arrived at the scene.

It is unclear why Cissy hadn't made her way from Edgewater, N.J., home until now. But Cissy and "Krissi" have not always seen eye-to-eye.

When Cissy's book, Remembering Whitney, came out in February 2013, Bobbi Kristina boycotted it because it included details of her mother's drug abuse, rumors of a gay relationship and problems with ex-husband Bobby.

Bobbi Kristina said it was "disrespectful."

Cissy responded with an open letter, writing, "I want you to have a good life that you can be proud of."

Meanwhile, the family continues to surround Bobbi Kristina, who has been on a ventilator since Saturday.

A family cousin, Jerod Brown, shared an Instagram shot of Bobbi Kristina, and starting a campaign #StillPrayforBK. In the caption he mentioned that doctors are saying the outlook is bleak.

"Though it seems the odds are against her, though doctors don't see any hope for change, though we might want to play detective and find out how she got there, though it looks impossible for her to stand again STILL PRAY FOR BK ‪#StillPrayForBK‬ Campaign starts NOW!"
