A mother in California wins the battle, at least for now, to keep her daughter on life support after being declared brain dead.
Doctors declared 13-year-old Jahi McMath brain dead after complications from a routine tonsillectomy. McMath's family sent the hospital a cease and desist letter to keep them from taking her off a ventilator.
I don't want her off life support because i really feel she can wake up, says the mother. I feel like it's been a rough week for her, and if they give her some more time, she'll be able to wake up.
McMath's mother believes the hospital is trying to cover up something. She says her daughter was fine and alert after the surgery, but then something went very wrong.
