“Brain-dead” California teen gets surgery at new facility after court fight

I have personally seen a supposed “brain dead” person make a great recovery and even go to college.
Check it out:

A California girl who was declared brain-dead after a tonsillectomy last month and later moved to a new care facility after a legal battle has undergone surgery to insert feeding and breathing tubes, a family attorney said on Wednesday.

Jahi McMath, 13, was transferred from Children’s Hospital and Research Center in Oakland, outside of San Francisco, where she had remained without brain activity for nearly four weeks, to an undisclosed Catholic care center on Sunday night.

Doctors at the new care center performed tracheostomy and gastrostomy surgeries, Christopher Dolan, attorney for the girl’s family, said in a Twitter message on Wednesday.

“She is doing very well, and now getting the treatment she should have gotten 28 days ago,” Dolan said. “Doctors are optimistic that her condition has stabilized.”
