Is there no foreseeable end to this madness?

My mind is imagining all sorts of macabre scenarios...like how they are maintaining her BP, likely with fluids and pressors, but we know what pressors do and how they damage the periphery... Gah. That's not even including the bloating/distension/infection that is bound to happen if she does indeed have a PEG tube and they feed her. Ugh.

What exactly is this mother's aim? Is she thinking of her daughter or herself? Even if she truly believes that her daughter is alive, and I can imagine that denial can be that strong, has she once considered the quality of life she is subjecting her daughter to? I just...I can't with this. I seriously cannot believe this is happening.

I am a deeply religious person but, ironically, it is my understanding of science which deepens my faith in God. These people? I don't even want to touch their fanciful notion of "faith."

Wow. This is getting completely out of hand. If doctors *DID* insert a trach & gtube they have for to be as dirty as the family & attorney. I think the family is past the point of denial & is just out for money. Their attorney isn't helping the cause either. If her condition has indeed stabilized, then where are the pictures? If she's moving & such like the family claims, what about videos? It's just funny to me that they finally get Jahi to a facility & the family wants "privacy". Wouldn't they want privacy all along instead of running directly to the press? My guess is Jahi's condition has gone downhill, maybe her heart stopped beating too, but they are gonna draw this out as long as possible. Which is truly disgusting.

After bringing up this story on my Facebook page the day before yesterday, I've learned I'm 3 degrees of separation from this family via a teacher at her school. I only mention that to say that I believe she is an only child.

Frozen peas. OMG.

Oh! And, the population of this child's school is deeply impoverished and mistrustful of the medical system in general. Those two things plus undereducated equals cash cow for Saul Goodman. He is a disgusting man. And I bet the gofundme was his idea. Purely speculation, of course.

Ditto. In fact, I was forcibly busted out of my comfortable agnostic shell when I started attending my science courses in pre-nursing. It sickens me that the family and their supporters are committing/endorsing such an atrocity while touting God and alleging miracles.

It actually ****** me off, not only as a nurse, but as a Christian too. The entire point of a miracle is to bring glory to GOD and no one else. When Lazarus was resurrected he had been dead for four days and was likely already in stage 2 of decomposition. The bible clearly states that he had begun to stink. When Jesus brought him back to life, there was no denying that the miracle came directly from God.

For this to be a true "miracle" in Jahi's case, she would have to be off the vent and be able to regulate her basic body functions on her own. Then, there would be no denying that the miracle came from God and not from an advent of modern science...you know, the very thing this family is thumbing their noses at. It's like they're claiming to have faith and put it in "God's hands" while relying on "man" to bring the miracle they are hoping for into fruition. That just strikes me as backwards.

Grr.

I need to distance myself from this case completely because it's seriously starting to get to me.

She's not an only child. She has two younger siblings and an older sister in her 20's.

The hospital generously provided counseling, child life specialists & chaplain services on call to help the family deal with the tragedy. The older sister is on twitter but getting frustrated with the backlash. She's no where in the league of the money grubbing uncle, she's just part of the family's web of gross denial about the child's death.

Yes. Who? Not a name I've seen associated with this situation. The attorney is Dolan

The people on her Facebook page have been posting stories about people coming back to life after being declared brain. I think they are confused.

Aren't you familiar with the zombie apocalypse? ;-)

The lawyer. Have you seen breaking bad? If not, I'm sure you can find a wiki on him. He's a total sleeve with hair only marginally worse than Chris Dolan's.

Oh, I've never watched Breaking Bad. I saw he was a lawyer but since I didn't watch the show I didn't make the connection.
