Melissa Rivers is contemplating when to take mother Joan Rivers off life support, a source reportedly told the New York Daily News on Thursday.

The 81-year-old Rivers is in a private room at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City -- in full hair and makeup and surrounded by flowers -- and is being kept alive by machines, the source reportedly said.

This person also said that Melissa Rivers may decide to remove the "Fashion Police" star from life support this weekend.

Melissa said in a statement Wednesday that her mother "is being kept comfortable." The elder Rivers was transferred Wednesday from intensive care to a large, private room "decorated by celebrity wedding planner Preston Bailey with flowers, bows, plants," Rivers' friend Cindy Adams told the Daily News, adding that the comedian has a white faux mink blanket and her "Oklahoma!" CD is playing in her room

"If she is off all life support and in a private room, and resting comfortably, it's possible the family is waiting for nature to take its course," an emergency medicine doctor at a prominent New York hospital reportedly said.

Rivers suffered cardiac and respiratory arrest last week while undergoing a procedure on her vocal chords. After being rushed to the hospital, doctors put her in a medical-induced coma over the weekend, of which they were reportedly bringing her out earlier this week. There hasn't been any information as to whether they were able to do that, nor have their been any specific updates on her condition.
