Wouldn’t it be great if the child declared brain-dead one year ago, just woke up one day and resumed life as it was before she went to sleep? While this might seem kind of far-fetched, recent signs of life is coming from a young girl whose family has been waiting with baited breath for her to wake up.
Thirteen year old Jahi McMath never woke up last year following a routine tonsil and adenoid removal surgery to treat sleep apnea at Oakland Children’s Hospital. After what doctor’s apparently thought was a significant amount of time, the coroner pronounced her brain-dead. But now, McMath is responding to her mother’s voice, and recently, moved her hand and her foot as prompted by a very happy mom. The attorney for the attorney now aims to get the determination of her brain death reversed.
