Doctors are keeping Rivers sedated and under close supervision, the source said, until they're comfortable with her condition, which is described as "serious."

In a statement, Rivers' daughter Melissa said, "My mother would be so touched by the tributes and prayers that we have received from around the world. Her condition remains serious but she is receiving the best treatment and care possible. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts as we pray for her recovery.”

Rivers was rushed to Mount Sinai hospital in critical condition when she went into cardiac arrest at a nearby clinic while undergoing what her network, E!, called "a minor endoscopic procedure."
