I pray that Jahil Mcmath wakes up soon.

It seems the hospital is in a hurry to pull the plug on Jahil. The parents should fight to prevent the hospital from ending their young daughter's life. Some doctors think they know-it-all; they do not know everything. Jahil could wake up anytime-God knows.

I Agree

You're right. It is in God's hands only...not the courts or the hospital.

See another heartbreaking story underlining cold tactics of hospital adminstrators when medical malpractice is evident and bullying of the family begins by the hospital bullies:
84 yr old Dolores was not given her CT Scan report results that she had a mass in her pancreas and when she asked the hospital questions about the crucial error the hospital administrators told her the doctor who ordered the tests is "not an employee of the hospital" even though he is on their website and that they weren't liable for the error! When Dolores and her daughter resisted discharge because it was unsafe and she was still very ill the hospital administrators had a Hospitalist (who didnt even know Dolores document she was "incompetent" and hospital filed a petition in court deeming her incompetent, get a Public Guardian assigned and revoke the Power of Attorney of her caring daughter. All because they asked questions about the crucial error. They never would have known she was terminally ill and only found out by accident because Dolores was so ill her daughter took her to the ER and there they found out about the results never told to them and then learned there was a second CT Scan taken 3 yrs earlier with the Radiologist's recommendations to do further testing of the pancreas (medicare didn't cover that test). This is all about money getting medical malpractice and statistics of mortality off of hospital property asap as they did with the Bedin family. Dolores recited all 44 Presidents in the 3 part investigative series and was covered in the Chicago Tribune. Her own doctor was not allowed to get involved or write in the record. The family asked for Dolores to be discharged to rehab which was her only chance to become mobile and qualify for the stronger chem her only chance to fight her cancer. But the Hospitalist wrote she got up an walked all alone from her bed to the bathroom so she was ready for discharge home and no rehab! Untrue. After two court hearings and further bullying by the hospital attorneys her daughter took her home and Dolores never got the stronger chemo because she was not mobile. She had the right to know she was terminally ill and to fight her cancer. When it was first discovered it was Stage I and was never informed about the results. Dolores died broken hearted about the system today that favors hospital lobbyists and liability phobic Risk Managers never valuing a human life. Dolores was a switchboard operator during WWII and died invisible and threatened to have a stranger make all her decisions for her and never to see her children again. The CEO of this non-profit hospital made $9.7 million they are to give to charity care like pick up the extra costs for tests that Medicare doesn't approve in exchange for non-profit status. When Dolores and family went to medical malpractice attorneys and no one would take the case because is on contingency all saying "she lived past her life expectancy" and therefore the damages would not be worth it for them to cover their time. Shame on them - the young and old are forgotten because they have no proven salary and years as enough of an award in damages for an attorney to get involved. God Bless Jahil's attorney for doing the right thing and not about $.
We are praying for Jahil and for her family to stay strong and fight back.
God is
