Yes it is safe to have tonsil surgery at Children's Hospital, it isn't safe to eat a Big Mac afterwards.

Clergy Criticizes Children’s Hospital’s Continued Insensitivity
By Tasion Kwamilele Posted 2 hours ago

Oakland clergy are still demanding answers from Children’s Hospital Oakland in regards to the way they handled the case of Jahi McMath.

McMath was declared brain dead three days after complications from tonsil surgery. The family fought to keep the teenager on life support, and during the ordeal, the hospital was criticized for its insensitivity towards the family.

“…We watched the hospital spokesperson tell the public “there is no amount of hope, there is no amount of prayer, she is dead”; we watched as the hospital hired extra security for people who were hurting but demonstrated no violent behavior,” said Rev. Harold Mayberry of First AME Church in Oakland.

Mayberrysays clergy members began working in December to negotiate a meeting with hospital staff, clergy, and a member of Jahi McMath’s family.

Because the hospital is an important institution in the community, he said, the goal of the meeting “was to attempt to bring healing to what has been a very painful situation for the community.”

However, it wasn’t until the end of January, after clergy pointed out a breach in protocol by hospital staff that CEO Betram Lubin finally responded, according to Mayberry.

The "shake-down" continues?

I wonder what sort of an "Unholy State" the corpse is in?

Died on (or just before) 12th Dec 2013..... animated for 2 months now. :eek

Ice still invokes a reflex, so I guess they'll go on that for a while. (I left a comment at the article you just linked.)

From the fb "support" page........

Keep Jahi Mcmath on life support
2-19-14

https://m.facebook.com/keepJahiMcmathonlifesupport

Quote:
A letter from Nailah;

It has been over a month since I have spoken about my life with Jahi to anyone outside a very small circle of family and friends. So many people have asked how we are doing and if Jahi is alive. This has and continues to be an unbelievably difficult time for me as a mother and for us as a family. I have withdrawn for reasons of safety and privacy and to focus on my daughter and my role as her mother. However, I have not been alone. I have been surrounded by the love, support and prayers of so many kind people. Despite what people say about my daughter being dead and how I must be ignorant not to get that, I can tell you that she is much better physically since she has left Children's Hospital and I see changes that give me hope.

As I prayed today, I felt called to express to people that I am truly grateful for the amount of love and support my daughter Jahi McMath and I have received from people all over the world. We feel your prayer and support. Because of your unselfish generosity I was able to do what I was afraid I would never be able to do, move my daughter from Children's Hospital Oakland before they removed her from her ventilator and stopped her heart. This was itself a miracle. Please know that all of the support we received has been used towards helping Jahi. If I had it my way, I would say thank you to each and every person in their native language so they could understand how much I appreciate them for all their support and, most importantly, prayers. It is my belief that faith in God, your prayers, and the incredible kindness of good hearted medical professionals, are the main reasons my daughter is alive today. I know people are concerned and I want to make sure you know that Jahi is not suffering, she is surrounded by love. I will never let her suffer.

On the long hard days when I'm feeling down I think about all the people who are praying for me and Jahi and I feel so much better. I want you to know that I'm praying for you as well.

Thank you to all of the people who view my daughter as the sweet, innocent, 13 year old girl that she is and not a dead body or a corpse, I deeply appreciate that. Thank you to everyone who hasn't forgot how my daughter got into this situation in the first place. No one should have to go through this.

I would like to thank all of the people who have reached out to me and shared their stories of their family members. Some have been heartbreaking, some have given me hope. All have helped me feel that I am not the only person who has had this struggle. Some of you have shared how you fought for your loved ones and they got better, some of you have shared your regret with not fighting more and some shared with me the incredibly difficult decisions you made to let go. I have prayed for you as you have for me. Sadly I can say I know how you feel.

I also want to thank those who felt the need to go public with their opinions about me and my daughter, positive and even negative. It is because of you that my daughter's experience is so relevant and that people all over the world know who Jahi Mcmath is. What you may not know is that her name, Jahi, means one who is known by many. Hopefully my daughter can change some of the ways brain death is viewed in today's society. Honestly, I think she already has.

Finally, thank you for all the love, support and prayers you give Jahi every day. I am certain that she knows you are praying for her. I feel the support from your prayer all the time. I don't think I or Jahi would be here today without you. May God bless all who have shown love and compassion as well as those who have expressed their contempt. All are deserving of God's grace and love. For those who believe, please, keep praying for Jahi. God can overcome all things and I believe that his will has yet to be fully revealed. I love Jahi and where there is love, there is hope.

Nailah Winkfield , Jahi's mom

No new mani-pedi pics? Why no videos of this progress? I can't begin to wrap my mind around the visual of Jahi today. IMO, this was just another plea for more "support".

I have lost the plot.

I can see that pretending that Jahi is alive, might be a way of avoiding the truth that she is dead... denial by the mother, a part of the grieving process, but really going on more than a day or two indicates a serious psychological problem. She needs advice/psychological help/counseling.
If it is just a cynical "small potatoes" scam to raise money, then I think it has failed. There are not likely to be any fortunes made... small trickle of donations only I would think.
If is is a bigger scam as part of law suits... I can't see it succeeding. People are going to have to inspect the body and the game will be up.
I don't understand why some sort of authority is not involved with a dead body hanging about somewhere. I would think some department or other would want to see what is being done to the body. Perhaps public healthy and safety issues? abuse of a corpse? Something?

I just hope that when they swap out her brain they don't get one from Abby Normal. But then again, that would be Super Duper!

RUMOUR ONLY: (but its persisted a few hours)

Heart has finally stopped, and so I guess some news about to break.

I resisted posting since I can't find confirmation yet.

I am sure they can find her a transplant. I mean, got to keep her "alive" as long as possible. She needs one last Big Mac before she dies again.
