    It would appear that Children's Hospital in Oakland was correct in their initial assessment... She ain't coming back .... Mom & Dads hooping & hollering was pointless






    Teen girl still hooked to machines 1 year later

    A year ago, 13-year-old Jahi McMath underwent a tonsillectomy and tissue removal at Children's Hospital in Oakland, California, to treat sleep apnea. The girl suffered massive bleeding, had a heart attack and was declared brain-dead Dec. 12.

    Her family battled to keep her on a ventilator and to have breathing and feeding tubes surgically inserted. Under a court agreement, the family and the hospital agreed that Jahi's mother, Nailah Winkfield, could remove her from the hospital if she took responsibility for the girl's care.

    A year later, Jahi remains on a ventilator and hooked to feeding tubes, and her case has ignited a debate over the definition of brain death. Here's a look at the latest:

    Because there was very heated discussion this time last year in the news regarding this story... The hospital (who was footing the massive bill for this kid) wanted to pull the plug because the kid was clinically dead....... The family swore the kid "moved" when they talked to her, therefore they thought there was a chance she could recover--& they tried to block the hospital from removing her from life support....... Another medical facility came forward and agreed to take the kid off the original hospitals hands........ Fast forward a year later--- kid's still a lump of unresponsive meat .. Hundreds of thousands of dollars pissed down the drain, simply to pacify two parents who refused to acknowledge that their child was deceased

    The kid was morbidly obese... These things sometimes happen to people who are in horrendous health

    The doctors didnt screw anything up. She had severe obstructive sleep apnea, partially due to obesity. They removed tonsils and throat/nose tissue. Severe bleeding is a risk. Period.

    According to court documents,[18] McMath was admitted to Children's Hospital Oakland on December 9, 2013 to perform an adenotonsillectomy, uvulopalatopharyngoplasty and submucous resection of bilateral inferior turbinates. It was hoped these procedures would provide improved airflow during her sleep at night. The hospital described these procedures as complicated.
