My 2014 thought's about............... Jahi.

Waiting for  a "miracle" may have undermined
legal action against  the hospital. ( Photo of Jahi McMath)
I  have a few  bones to pick for the new year , I wanted to start off with a few of the stories that are on  the news ,and one has  made it on the national headlines . There can be no worse  a story this year than the  Jahi McMath case . This is making me angry no much less that it is tragedy , but I am beginning to feel that that the parents of Jahi hoping for a miracle may have been "duped" on a medical misdiagnosis . I have to ask a question that NO BODY has asked . Why are't the parents  into litigation against the hospital for "wrongful death". Why for God's sake are they wasting public time , and why did this girl need to have her tonsils removed ? When more medical professionals are getting  away from the practice , it's like male circumcision , many in the medical field  are asking why do males really need to have their foreskin removed? Like our tonsils?   Many other body parts as well. I remembered what President Obama said way back a few years ago .  ##I don't  want to politicize Jahi McMath  story as much as it has been , but there is a boiling point connection to this . Do Americans want a federal board deciding if their kids need surgery? Those greedy doctors. “You come in and you’ve got a bad sore throat, or your child has a bad sore throat or has repeated sore throats,” President Obama explained at  one time  press conference. “The doctor may look at the reimbursement system and say to himself, ‘You know what? I make a lot more money if I take this kid’s tonsils out.’” So the story goes have the McMath's been duped ? Why don't they sue the hospital  (  ***as I repeat it ) Now the story is getting a bit mixed . The Family of Terri Schiavo, the brain-damaged Florida woman who died in 2005 after almost 15 years in a vegetative state, has urged continued life support for a California teenager left brain dead after a tonsillectomy. --- I ponder what is the difference between a "Brain damaged"  and "brain dead ."  Jahi medically is not a legal definition of being in a coma . For me the McMath family are seriously making fools of themselves . I also do sympathize with them that they do need a miracle , but also they must face the facts.

Common Dangers Ignored .

hundred press accounts have described the procedure McMath underwent as a “routine tonsillectomy.” Not so, according to Brandon Peters, M.D. at

There is a paucity of known facts in this situation. The family and their lawyer have released few specific details. Oakland Children’s Hospital, bound by the privacy restrictions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), has offered even less. Jahi underwent three surgical procedures for the treatment of her sleep apnea. This included a tonsillectomy, uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), and removal of nasal turbinates. Though initially described as a “routine tonsillectomy,” this degree of surgery in children is not routine. It is extensive. When performed on a child, the risk is high.


***There have been  some questions about what "religious faith" the McMaths have . I have known Christian Scientists who have avoided certain medical procedures based on Faith. I was hoping my self for a REAL MIRACLE for this girl , just to see her "wake up" and prove some of the medical professionals idiots, but it's getting granny here . The devastated family should sue the hospital on wrongful death , that should have been investigated as a court order from the "judge" . So far nothing was ever said of that from the family's own attorney .... In the end we are going to be all devastated because no real miracle came , worse off is that the hospital  got away from its responsibility of making sure Jahi was alive.

## President Obama politicized the Trayvon Martin case  as much , ye this might get an Obama response ?
