joan-rivers-family-clinic-lawsuit.jpgWhile Joan Rivers' family continues to hope that she wakes up from her medically induced coma without too many complications, they're also considering suing the clinic that performed the throat surgery Rivers underwent when she stopped breathing.

"Shock and upset is turning to anger, and they are looking for someone to blame," a family source tells the New York Daily News. "The night before she was performing and now she is on life support. An 81-year-old should not have that procedure as an outpatient. Very ill-advised."

The waking-up process takes several days, so it will be Tuesday (Sept. 2) at least before they find out the true consequences of the "Fashion Police" star's health issues. Melissa Rivers said in a statement that she has her "fingers crossed" that her mother will wake up healthy.
