Jahi McMath

A family member posted a new photo of Jahi McMath on a Facebook page that is dedicated to keeping Jahi on life support.

The Oakland teenager remains brain dead and on life support at an undisclosed location after she was pronounced dead following routine tonsil surgery more than 2 years ago.

Enyo Inyang posted a new photo on Facebook along with the caption: "Jahi Will Rise. A recent picture of beautiful Jahi, doing very well, hair, skin and all very healthy, growing into a beautiful young lady right in front of her mothers eyes."

The Facebook author warns disbelievers to leave the page and take their negative comments with them.

"This page was created to support this lovely child, Jahi McMath and her family, if you are here to spew your negative thoughts please kindly delete your comments and remove yourself because each and every comment will be read, and if deemed necessary, both you and your comments will be removed and you may be permanently banned."

Jahi, who is now 15, was pronounced brain dead after undergoing what was supposed to be routine tonsil surgery in December 2013.

The surgery went well but Jahi experienced bleeding complications during the recovery period. Doctors weren't able to stop the bleeding in time to prevent catastrophic loss of oxygen to her brain.

Her family refused to believe the once lively teenager was brain dead. A court battle ensued leading to a judge ruling Jahi brain dead and ordering her removed from life support.

A New Jersey facility stepped in and agreed to take possession of Jahi's body and keep her on life support.

    Oh my... I don't know what to say. She is beautiful. I totally understand how her mothers feels. This is a hard decision to make!

  • Lisa Daniels

    There was a girl who went blind after her tonsils were removed and her daddy is a doctor. Crazy.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    I have NO comment on this. I'll just say God bless this family.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    OT: Sandra you didn't do a crime post today. Did you see where Clarence was down to the turnpike tryna rob the toll booth?

  • SameoleJ

    I agree. It is heartbreaking and I can't say what I would do in this situation.

  • NicolaLoves

    I'm not trying to be negative, but people need more faith. If God wants Jahi to live, take her off the ventilator. She'll live. If not, let her go be with Him.

    Her mother is keeping her alive for her own comfort, not Jahi. Let the child be free.

  • nucynu25

    I kinda agree , but I couldn't imagine ...its just a situation..

  • A D N

    God gives and He takes away...

  • WetPntees

    Chile!!! I agree but at the same time scared to upvote you due to these trolls on this blog...Therefore I will write it (upvote)on a post-it and place it ever so gently on my puter monitor screen...

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    I will keep my opinions on this to myself. I wish this family all the best.

  • rayne215

    i actually wonder about Jahi from time to time and appreciate the update. I wish her home state wasnt so stubborn and at least allow another brain dead test. That said, Jahi, from all that ive read, will never "rise" again. The brain doesnt regenerate well

  • Milani

    I honestly don't know what to say about this, so I'll just say I hope the family finds peace sometime soon.

  • TE69

    Is that the lighting or did they pierce her lower lip?

  • GuestSTAR

    Wow, sad.
    Maybe a medical professional could give some insight. I'm curious to know what is happening internally with this young lady, like her organs for instance. She's lying comatose, in a stationary position, seemingly not urinating, menstruating how does this affect her? What about her blood flow, bones, not moving around, like how does this affect the rest of her body.

  • Yoni

    Almighty forgive me, but she looks real "coffin crisp" in that pic. Almighty cover them.

  • SG

    None whatsoever. ?

  • shell

    She actually didn't just have a routine tonsil surgery she had several other procedures that were very high risk to help with her sleep apnea.

  • Yoni

    All I keep singin in my head is "I SHOT the sheriff. But I did not shoot the Deputy." :facepalm:

  • WetPntees

    I think that's the lighting... Her lip gloss is poppin *Lil Mama vc*

  • SameoleJ

    She would be catheterized for her urine output and would have someone come in and turn her and do simple Range of Motion exercises on her. There will be some muscle deterioration and if she awakens, she would need to go through therapy to learn to use her limbs again, if she is able to. Not sure about her cycle, but her condition may cause amenorrhea.

  • Branch Davidian

    I wonder if these people are related to Bobby Brown?

  • Lovezoe

    I was wondering if you were going to post this.

  • WetPntees

    Oh!!! Well that makes it a little clearer for me now. Thanks!

  • NicolaLoves

    I had the misfortune/fortune of being in the room while someone was going to God.

    We were doing things the "lazy" nurses weren't, just to keep him alive (draining his lungs). Then I realized/accepted that he was gone and those "lazy" nurses weren't lazy, they just understood that's how his body was going to go out. We were merely prolonging the inevitable.

    I swear I can tell you the moment he went, and it was a good 14 hours before his body gave up. The energy in the room changed. I'm convinced of it.

    So all the heroics we did, were for our benefit, not his.

    This poor woman. I feel for her. But she won't begin to heal until she lets go.

  • Yoni

    I ALWAYS wonder about comatosed women and their monthly "girl thing". Like do they feel cramps, have cravings, mood swings. Like does the monitors react to what's going on inside of their bodies. Who's "taking care" of the hygiene of it. Yall know what I'm sayin'/askin'. :facepalm:

  • Yoni


  • Lovezoe

    I gotta go. I can't deal with this.

  • Yoni

    Gone 'head with your medically terminological self. Look at you all A&P biology and shit! LOL :nun:

  • Meme81

    I wonder how the family is affording this? I know insurance is really picky about what they will and wont fund. I hope God brings them a peaceful resolution they can accept soon because this can't go on forever.

  • SameoleJ

    LOL I was a CNA 20 years ago, when you had to actually go through schooling and in externship.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Go babes. ?

  • LadyFrance

    I lost my own daughter to SIDS at 8 weeks old 6 years ago. If I had found her in enough time that they could have put her on life support, I cannot say if I would have been brave enough to let her go and remove the support. To be faced with the death of a child is beyond what most people can understand until you have been faced with it. Logically we can say pull the plug, but in the midst of it is another thought.

  • SameoleJ


  • GuestSTAR


  • Yoni

    When you didn't just wear scrubs and keep yo hair cute.

  • SameoleJ

    No problem

  • It’s Taurus Season

    God bless you hun. So sorry.

  • LA

    Bless your heart...

  • SameoleJ

    Exactly, Had to keep hair up, nails short and uncolored, wear all white................

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    smh...I think you've met your quota for the day. please clock-out! ROFL!

  • Yoni

    REAL schoolin'! <---- STILL has to keep nails with no color on'em. The devil is a lie tho'.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Bless you

  • SameoleJ

    So sorry to hear that and God Bless you and your family. My family was faced with that when my 8 year old cousin was shot in the head. After a week and the fact that he would not fully recover, his parents donated his organs and pulled the plug, but for years they questioned their decision. It is not just the act of pulling the plug that has to be dealt with, but the "Did I do the right thing?" question that lives in the living.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    Blessings to you. :hugs:

  • SameoleJ

    And uniforms white, no stains and iron with a crisp!!

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    aww man... God bless that baby's parents. :sad:

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Bless them is all I can say, for I cant imagine.

  • SameoleJ

    Thank you...He and my youngest were born 2 weeks apart and very close. It was one of the most painful experiences that my family faced. He would be 22 this year.

  • WetPntees

    May God continue to bless you with unquestionable strength and faith through your testimony. NONE of us on this blog can say what we would do UNLESS we were in this situation.. My prayers are going up for her family, and May our Father be the light in her mother's testimony once her baby awakens.. Amen!


    Very beautiful young lady but she looks like she's casket ready lying there so peacefully! I'm sorry to say it but 2 years is a long time to be on life support but I do understand that this family doesn't want to let go, nobody wanna let o of someone they love, so all umma say is fix it Jesus or go ahead and call your child home to rest...

  • Afiya

    Aww, bless their souls.

  • WetPntees

    I agree, but a mother's love surpasses any other kind of love imaginable... I was researching her story over the internet just a few moments ago and was moved to tears at watching the pain and sorrow through her mother's eyes. I cannot imagine what I would do in her situation, but I'm almost CERTAIN it wouldn't be as easy for me to give up on mine either..

  • Yoni

    I ain't did nothing today! I've been real good. We ain't even had that many post. *pouts*

  • Nonya Bizness

    Please stop repeating the lie that she had "routine tonsil surgery" because she didn't. She had 3 procedures that day. Saying she had "routine tonsil surgery" scares everyone who is having or whose kid is actually having routine tonsil surgery.Children's chief of pediatrics Dr. David Durand said " Jahi's surgery was "very complex," not simply a tonsillectomy."It was much more complicated than a tonsillectomy," Durand said. He refused to elaborate, citing health care privacy laws.

  • Sexy CJ

    A recent picture of beautiful Jahi, doing very well, hair, skin and all very healthy, growing into a beautiful young lady right in front of her mother's eyes............As a mother...... .I'm at a loss for words.......So Sad......

  • Sexy CJ


  • Carrington

    Really? The child was declared brain dead and you're putting make-up on her face so you can share the pictures on social media. Lord. make it stop for this mother. Release her from the pain so that she can stop putting herself through this.

  • WetPntees

    Like a church usher and what not? No cute scrubs?

  • felinelurker

    Same here. I was there when my bro-in-law transitioned. There was no point keeping him on the ventilator bc his lungs were filling w/ liquid. I remember thinking they didn't want to deal with it either but in reality, it's no more they could do. He was having seizures/convulsions bc his organs were shutting down.

  • Mister Fantastic

    Poor girl, but family is delusional to think this young lady is "healthy as ever." NEVER give up hope, but don't say a lie and expect us all to swallow it.

  • Mega Yawn

    I understand that it's hard to let go of a loved one, but come on! What if their keeping that poor child's soul hostage from moving on.
    Plus by the end of it, the family will be broke! Comatose maintenance is far from cheap! Hell a day or two in the hospital with good insurance isn't cheap. I'm all for keeping hope alive but once the brain is damaged,it's normally all over.
    So sad to see people so burdened by sadness. I wish them well even though I think they should pull the plug

  • Faithz

    Lord have Mercy.

  • AnonymousRose

    Its hard to even phantom this, Give them the Strength to move forward. in whatever Decision you make on this baby shall be

  • Dakota H

    I seen a video they posted awhile she moved her foot and her hand on command from her mother. I don't know if she really did it or if the body just moved from stimulation or what. But no one can tell her what to do with her child b/c when you pull the plug or turn the machines off its over.

  • AnonymousRose

    I can agree, but I'm not in her shoes so....

  • therealashland

    Her mom needs a mental health eval

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today


  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    ooh, that made my heart hurt... so sorry your family experienced such a loss, smh

  • I cAll ThE sHoTs…

    She started her period last year sometime. I don't think dead people menstruate, right? They said that she would start decomposing but look at her now? She appears to be aging like a normal 15 year old. Why does she still have a death certificate?

  • The Mrs.

    Wow, a judge can order someone to be taken off life support? But if she is brain dead, she can never come back from that, can she?

  • imright

    its already over

  • Ke$hiaFromBelly

    New post PLEASE :(

  • Auditor

    A judge can do whatever the hell they want...

  • Auditor

    Well I'm guessing if she's not on life support she has some type of brain activity? Or am I mistaken?

  • Auditor

    Somebody is paying for it they said...she's an experiment to whomever is paying. You know they don't get enough Black participants in studies and force folks to do it without their knowledge. AKA Tuskegee...

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I'm glad this isn't me as a mother. This is ...... Looking at the picture eeringly beautiful . The teenager is beautiful but I don't know if her soul is at rest . Maybe she will wake up and her parents will be right. I believe in miracles and she looks peaceful. I just am baffled....

  • Liah

    Prayers to the family

  • Canary Red™

    Got to LOVE their faith! Even if she don't wake up ( which I hopes she does)...they are some believers and prayer warriors!!
    God bless y'all!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Her original doctors said even with the ventilator she would die within a few months. The fact that she hasn't had complete organ failure is continue " on" is what give the family hope. I looked on Facebook and there are videos of her moving her hands. I know people say that's involuntary . I don't know. People have woke up from comas .... The rest is in God's hands. I hope someday either way the parents get peace.

  • LetHerGo

    Taking someone off life support is not as simple as telling the doctors to take them off. They bring you a ton of paperwork to sign. The actual document is titled "Termination/End of Life". They keep asking you if you are sure. Of course you are not sure. After I signed it I had instant diarrhea. It was awful. I almost knocked the nurse down trying to get to the bathroom. Then it takes hours for the person to actually "die".

  • ramosyo

    This is NOT negative...BUT...anyone in a vegative state, that isn't deceased...nails,hair, etc will grow BC u have not departed. Your organs are still functioning even if your brain is not! Must be hard to accept the obvious. But they cling to the what if hadn't pulled the plug? The what if she woke up?? She should be let go. Her spirit is gone, the body in tact. I'm wondering won't her muscle tone fade with no activity? Her face is full so maybe she is getting nourished...idk. So sad

  • Hummingbird_225

    I am so glad you cleared that up because my 7 yo daughter might have to get hers removed and that made me nervous

  • Deno Spencer

    There was this one story a few years back were this woman was in a coma for 20years and her parents never took her off and the mom said she prayed and prayed and one day she woke up. And was healthy!! I no brain dead is Differnt but I'm sending my prayers up for them. I believe although the doctors say this and that we have to trust our hearts. God bless them.

  • LaGrl562

    I believe that is why she is not in her home state. The original institution she was in wanted to pull the plug (due to the mounting costs) the family contested and had to find another place to care for her. I believe someone is donating the fees for the expenses now.

  • NicolaLoves

    Honestly, when I think of Jahi I think of how many young kids could have been saved had her organs had been donated. I suspect it's too late now.

    That's her child, but the little girl in the bed isn't her child as well, if that makes any sense. She's going to spend the next 5 years + visiting her daughter's shell.

    The horrific thing is when Jahi passes, it will probably be because of bedsores.

    She has my prayers.

  • missarewa

    I remember this story.. it's just so sad :( Lord please intervene

  • Auditor

    Yup many of cases

    Bed sores are HORRIFIC...I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy

  • beba micou

    Cells in the body individually regenerate in 7 years. The brain cells do not regenerate once maturity is reached (this girl has not reached maturity), but brain cells in parts of the brain do regrow. Also read an article of a man who was diving and went 10 mins without oxygen and was revived with pure oxygen as this was all that was available before ambulance arrived and he lived and is fully functioning. He is petitioning hospitals and emts to revive heart patients and others who go without oxygen to resessitate using pure oxygen;which could kill someone who is not lacking oxygen but proves to work and fully revive those who've gone without it for 6 mins or mor; without leaving the person brain dead.

  • Gina

    I noticed that too, but I didn't want to say it

  • Auditor

    Never seen a person die but I put my dog to sleep. One of the hardest things I ever did and I felt like a murderer for the longest. He went peacefully but he did let go of his bodily fluids right after.

  • surprise2012

    I was there when both of my grandmothers we're taken off of life support. One grandmother raised me and OMG, I thought I was going to loose it but I knew she was ready to go. Never an easy decision. Now if this was my boys I would probably be like this mother, these 2 young men are my life.

  • NicolaLoves

    And they happen so fast. Most people don't know that Christopher Reeves died from an infected one. And he had 24 hour care.

    Jahi pretty tiny, but I fear as the media attention wears off, so will her care. :(

  • ?E?E?M?A

    She's as healthy as ever?? Let that girl go

  • Cricket404

    I read that once the doctors were inside, they removed her soft palette and adnoids in addition to her tonsils. After surgery, her operating physician was unreachable. Sad all the way around. She is bacially laying in wake. My daughter was scheduled for this surgery and Ive cancelled 2 times. I just can't, I'm way too unstable to deal with losing her.

  • Molly Church

    Very sad & painful situation. ?The mother is N denial. Jahi is not there, just the shell of her body. ?Sadly, the mother is using her now for her own "Comfort.?

  • SummerBaby

    I was just thinking about her yesterday. Thanks for the post Sandra.

  • stanley

    It's the anesthesia that does it... Some people are allergic to that particular drug that puts you to sleep. I had complications to that too, luckily I had talented Anesthesiologist that was able to bring me back out of it...

    An Easy Routine procedure can turn into a death trap real quick.. And it's almost no way of knowing how your body will react to it.

  • SandraRose

    You're welcome hun.

  • facingrealit1

    Jahi's Mom and Grandmother are not able to accept that THEY not the hospital are responsible for the condition Jahi is in. Many do not realize that a couple of days after Jahi returned to her room from the surgery her GRANDMOTHER caved in and allowed her to have a HAMBURGER which probably burst the stitches and caused her to bleed out. Most reasonable and rational people KNOW that after such a surgery the child should have remained on a liquid diet until she was healed. But NOOOO - they fed her a hamburger. If they were convinced that the hospital was responsible they would be awaiting a judgment.

  • Prettybootnikki

    Has anyone ever thought about what happens after you die? Or what do you think death is like? I wonder about that a lot since loosing my mom 2 years now.

  • facingrealit1

    There is a lot more to the story that the parents are not sharing nor are the doctors for legal reasons. When asked what happened prior to her bleeding out there was a conversation that the relatives had caved in and allowed her to eat solid food when her diet called for all liquids. I think the grandmother allowed her to eat a hamburger which probably busted the stitches. So don't be overtly concerned about your daughter just make sure to follow the diet restrictions given for her.

  • facingrealit1

    I believe that there is an afterlife as the soul doesn't die; only the body.

  • Django the God

    Well I didn't know this all stemmed from sleep apnea.

    Guess I'll just keep trying to wear my mask every other night... Fokdot.

  • barbeez

    This child needs to be put to rest. What kind of life is this? We are looking at a well kept corpse. Sorry. I know that was harsh but its true. Her family needs mental help. This has got to end. God took this child and they have to learn to accept it.

  • barbeez

    a piercing...sigh... imma leave it alone..

  • Prettybootnikki

    Thank you for sharing. I do too. And then I be thinking what if u come back as something else. It's just hard loosing a parent.

  • That’s Interesting

    I know. It's sickening and creepy, and yes, I am going to judge. Her mother is wrong! Dead wrong! I don't understand how she could want to see her daughter like in and day out. It's just sick.

  • whitty hutton

    My mother is a retired "noyse". I remember starching her white uniforms (no pants), running to the sto' for white stockings (Queen size) ? and she wore that little white hat...put it back in the clear plastic case er' night and polished her white SAS nursing shoes. **memories** ??

  • ATL White Guy

    This is a tough one. On one hand, the family can't move on as they are in a way keeping a barely living memorial alive to Jahi. It's slightly selfish to not let God's plan run it's course. But on the other hand, it is hard for a parent to let go. What would happen if something tragic happened to the Mother? Would she want strangers keeping her daughter alive on a breathing machine?

  • Queen B

    Wow, she looks gorgeous ? But 2 years is a long time to be on life support. I hope God touch the minds, hearts, and souls of this family and guide them to do the right thing. At some point those donators funds will run dry and a decision will have to b made.

  • That’s Interesting

    I'm sorry for your loss. I have lost one person and it pains me to think that I will never see them we were. That's the worst part. I am a Christian and believe in afterlife in heaven or hell, but it has been interpreted that we won't know our loved ones in heaven....but deep down, I don't believe that. I think we'll recognize our loved ones in heaven.

  • Futuredocdonte

    Did...... Did......? Did they pierce that child's lip?!

  • SandraRose

    Wow. Thanks for the memories! I had to wear those stiff white caps in nursing school. ???

  • parisjok dean

    oh, I'm thinking her mom might be feeling really guilty and is blaming herself for letting her have multiple procedures at one time and having that terrible unexpected outcome

  • Prettybootnikki

    Thank you. And yes, I heard that too from a friend but I haven't came across it in the bible. I guess because I don't recall the actual scripture/verse.

  • Mrs Mary

    so what is the difference between this girl and bobbi kris? why was bobbi kris taken off of life support? was it because her organs were shutting down and this young ladies organs are doing just fine? someone please explain the difference. I believe in miracles for sure, however I also believe in letting go when it is time, I can't tell a parent to let go of their child so that is not for me to do. just trying to understand the whole situation, praying for her full recovery just like I prayed for bobbi kris.

  • Megan L

    People always have their opinion until it's one of their own. I can see why the had to tell people to keep their comments to themselves. Everything you guys are saying they have been hearing for 2 LONG years. All the " Let her go " comments no nobody cares about please stop. When someone dies we ALL wish that person was still physically here with us. I know for a fact how hard this Is for her. Had to make this choice for my baby brother when I was only 20 years ago. Accepting it wasn't the hard part Letting go was. Bless everyone.

  • SandraRose

    I believe the difference is Bobby Brown didn't want Bobbi Kris to linger in a vegetative state for years. So the hospice doctor gave her Morphine and other drugs to assist her passage.

  • Thereza

    My father passed from artereosclerosis after being bed ridden for 10 years. Wish my mom had saved her own health rather than not letting him go. It was tragic to see his fingers bend, bed sores fester and a great big man just waste away. The blogs that have shown the insider photos of similar things occurring to Jahi are horrifying. This child of god passed a long time ago. No lip gloss, pancake, covers to the neck or sunglasses can cover up this indignity.

  • leapyearpisces

    Thank you! Someone FINALLY touched on my concern. I will not judge the family, because I cannot imagine life without my two nerve-wreckers, with that said, I just wonder is her spirit in limbo. Is it scared, wondering around? Is her spirit running into malovent spirits that haven't yet crossed over as well? Is the spirit in a constant state of lucid dreaming or astral projection, and it's like a movie real that loops over and over again? I just pray that her spirit is at peace / rest THAT is my concern, because at the end of the day that is what matters, because her physical being is no more. We all (myself included) have to understand that having faith, does not guarantee that our desired results will be yielded, unfortunately. It's understandable they (the family) want to have faith that this young lady will rise again, but what about having faith that OUR father has called his angel back home and I mean no harm or disrespect. Nor do I mean to be insensitive. Trust! this situation is very FRESH to me as we removed my ex father in law from life support two weeks ago. I was there when he took his last breath and transcended.

    No lie I think that's 1 reason my mother in law had a stroke, she couldn't get used to the mask & doesn't wear it.
    I'm trying to use mine, it's not easy when you sleep on your side, but man I don't want to end up can't use 1 hand or write or hardly walk.

    My thoughts exactly! I keep saying I'm going to wear mine more. Been real sleepy lately. I'm masking up tonight!

  • T3

    It is uncomfortable and takes some getting used to. The refreshing feeling you get when you wake up is so worth it (preaching to myself, I don't wear mine regularly). We're really playing ourselves. I be thinking how pissed my moma and daddy would be if I died from complications and I have the damn machine right by my bed ?. We can do it!

  • Miss Thang

    I work in hospice. Assisted suicide is illegal. More than likely they removed the traech and she died because she couldn't breathe on her own.

  • Miss Thang

    The difference is...this family wants to keep this girl on life-support and Bobbi Kristina's family did not want to keep her on life-support.

  • sunni_daze

    Her family made sure to keep her wake up ready. Hair and make-up look good.

  • SandraRose

    She was taken off the ventilator and breathing on her own long before she died. The coroner found Morphine in her system. I wasn't a hospice nurse but I had hospice patients, and it's common knowledge that doctors routinely give terminally ill patients Morphine to help them along since Morphine depresses respirations.

  • Brian

    I feel so bad for Jahi. I don't know where the soul is in situations like this, but I often wonder, what if she's trapped? Like her soul is just trapped lying there for years and SHE wants to move on? I think it is very selfish of her family to do this. The situation is unfortunate, and I wish nothing like this happened to her in the first place, especially during a routine procedure...but damn! Two years? I don't think it's right!

  • jadapooh2

    Yikes; she looks dead :( :(

  • jason

    At this point, it's selfish to keep this girl on the machine. Got her out here looking like Weekend at Bernie's.

  • Hmmm~?

    This girl is STILL on life support? You have to be joking. I feel terrible for the mother and understand that it's hard to let your baby girl go, but good grief. The girl is dead. Brain death is irreversible. She needs to sit down and have a talk with Bobby Brown or something. That girl is never coming back and the sooner she accepts this, the sooner both of them can have peace.

    Though I use to, I no longer limit my thoughts to Biblical teachings. At this point I think it's probably a complete mystery to mankind as to what happens when we die since no one has really been capable of returning after death to let us all know what happen. But many humans have adopted and written about the possibilities such as the Biblical heaven or hell scenario or the Buddhist teachings of reincarnation. As you stated I often ponder the possibility of reincarnation in some form and I think that is a plausible possibility since we are made of energy that is released when we die. But I always fall back on the famous phrase, "Who knows?" Humans have created religions in my opinion partly because the unknown is very unsettling and it's easier to have beliefs and peace of mind.

    You made really good points. And it's so funny how just yesterday when I came home from work, I watched the view that I record daily and they were talking about the same thing. Morgan Freeman was on the show. Raven said pretty much exactly what you just said. That she sometimes wonder if things were created by man in order for us to have a piece of mind. And being made up of energy. Needless to say, it was a pretty good conversation.

    That is so sad. But who can tell a parent to let go?

    Thanks, I've been wrestling with these type of thoughts for a good while. I'll have to look up that episode of The View, sounds interesting.

    I feel real sorry for the family... are they receiving government financial assistance for the bills behind this - Child support, Medicaid, TANF? Just wondering...

    And you were "capped" in a ceremony, correct? Getting that little white hat was a milestone in nursing school. My mom was the librarian in the Malden Hospital School of Nursing Library. She loved all those budding nurses and treated them all as if they were her own. :)

    She's trapped in there. While the shell she is in, is still functioning, as it were, she is trapped.
