ANOTHER "Exclusive" :lol


EXCLUSIVE: "She's Still Asleep," Jahi McMath's Mother Says of Daughter

In an exclusive interview, Jahi McMath's mother, Nailah Winkfield, talks about her daughter, who she says is "still asleep" and not brain dead. Here are some excerpts from that interview.

I think she's confusing asleep with "the big sleep".

I came across this... I believe the author has nursing credentials...H/T Data Venia

Data Venia wrote:
Let me explain a little better about the issues around feeding, since the rhetoric was that the hospital was "starving" Jahi, and that's simply not the case.

We know from the medical reports (released to public) that Jahi suffered a lack of oxygen to not only her brain but to her whole body, intestines and digestive tract included. When this happens, the intestinal lining -- the cells that enable you to absorb the nutrients you eat -- dies and begins to slough off, because it is particularly sensitive to lack of oxygen. That happened to Jahi. Any food given to Jahi via a feeding tube at that point would not have been absorbed and would have been wasted (at best) and caused complications at worst.

In a living, non-brain-dead person, hospitalized with post-ischemic (lack of oxygen) injury to the bowel, the standard procedure is to stop any feeding via the digestive tract and to give nutrients only via IV until the intestines can recover or until it's determined if the damage is so severe that emergency surgery is needed to go in and remove dead portions that are beyond recovery. This is called "bowel rest." So, the fact that Jahi was getting fluids and nutrients only by IV was medically appropriate even in the absence of her fatal brain injury.

However, given that Jahi had been examined and declared dead by two CHO doctors and a 3rd court-appointed specialist, there would be no emergency surgery to remove dead sections of intestine. While the court battle was fought, she would be maintained only on IVs. If the damage was too severe, the intestines would perforate, she'd become septic, and things would go downhill quickly from there. If the damage was mainly to the intestinal linings and wasn't full-thickness of the intestines, the linings would eventually regenerate on their own, given enough time -- which she certainly has had by now -- then feeding via the GI tract could safely resume. But no-way, no-how should Jahi have been getting food via a feeding tube while active intestinal sloughing was still going on. Even the family's own doctor held off doing so for a while after she was removed from CHO. That doctor knew the risks.

Now that the ischemic colitis has resolved, she should not still be sloughing intestinal lining (unless her blood pressure is too low to perfuse the intestines well enough, and repeated episodes of ischemia have developed), and the intestines should now be able to absorb the nutrients given by a feeding tube. Those nutrients will do nothing to reverse the brain death, since none of them will be going to the brain (brain circulation ceases with brain death), but they will be enough to keep other body tissues going so long as the ventilator continues to run, the heart continues to beat, and blood continues to circulate.

Hope this explanation helps.

Good gravy. I can't believe that this is still going on. When can the state step in and charge this crazy family (I do remember that their hands were out for monetary help right away) with abuse of a corpse.

Entry on "Keep Jahi McMath on Life Support" Facebook page.....

https://www.facebook.com/keepJahiMcmathonlifesupport

Quote:
Thank you for all your support and prayers for Jahi. As Jahi fights to recover, the school year is coming to an end, and her fellow students are preparing to graduate. Jahi has been a student at E.C Reems Academy of Technology and Arts Oakland California, from kindergarten to 8th grade. Jahi should be graduating from the 8th grade this month but it may not be possible for her to make it to the ceremony, as she is fighting to recover. Please take a minute of your time to call the school and let them know we want them to acknowledge Jahi McMath at the 8th grade graduation ceremony, she deserves to receive the graduation certificate as she has completed most of the 8th grade work. Thank you for all your kindness, prayers and support for Jahi, and thank you for taking your time to call the school. God bless you all.

Brain-Dead Girl to Receive Honorary Diploma: Uncle
By Lisa Fernandez
Wednesday, Jun 11, 2014 | Updated 1:30 PM PDT

The uncle of an Oakland teen who became the subject of national headlines last year when she was declared brain-dead after a tonsil surgery wants his niece recognized at her former school’s upcoming graduation.

And it seems like he got his wish. On Wednesday, Jahi McMath's uncle Omari Sealy tweeted that his niece's school will give an "honorary 8th-grade diploma for Jahi to a family member."

Sealy did not return a phone call, and neither did the school's chief operating officer, Lisa Blair.

But that solution is likely to appease Jahi's family, who has largely stayed out of the public spotlight since the family won a court order allowing them to keep the teen on life support and move her to an undisclosed location, despite declarations from doctors that the girl was legally dead.

Sealy, who frequently spoke on behalf of the family during the court fight, took to social media this week to voice complaints that EC Reems Academy of Technology and Arts had not been planning to include the teen in its graduation program.

“The school said they received too many complaints about displaying anything about Jahi McMath….Really????” Omari Sealy tweeted on Tuesday.

Then, on Wednesday, he tweeted again: "All we want is to hear her name called like the other students crossing the stage. We dont (sic) want any special tribute or ceremony."

OK, first of all, who gets a diploma for passing 8th grade? You have to be kidding me. Second, how could she have completed the course work? She has been mostly dead for quite some time. Lastly, why not just give her an honorary doctorate and she can be her own doctor?

I wonder who she will be voting for in the next election?

I see an opportunity for posters at True Gossip Forums... veteran "victim" supporters.... The "I am...." crowd...

They could in this case use the status "I am Jahi".... or more clearly....... "I am Brain-dead"

Jahi McMath: Brain-dead Oakland girl receives honorary diploma
By David DeBolt
Posted: 06/13/2014 03:29:37 PM PDT0 Comments
Updated: 06/13/2014 03:35:57 PM PDT

OAKLAND -- The family of Jahi McMath, the 13-year-old girl declared brain-dead six months ago, accepted a diploma on her behalf at an East Oakland school's eighth-grade graduation on Friday.

Her mother, Nailah Winkfield, and other family members were on hand to receive the honorary diploma from E.C. Reems Academy of Technology and Arts, where Jahi attended school since kindergarten. Jahi's younger sister also graduated kindergarten Friday.

"Jahi deserved it," Winkfield said. "She worked very hard."
