the family does not want to accept she is dead and is that justification to monopolize equipment the living need.

I won't pretend to know what is in Jahi's family's hearts and minds - other than the grief they're going through must be excruciating beyond belief. As I said above, no one expects a child to die as a result of a routine surgical procedure that's so common it's literally unthinkable that one could die from it.

I cannot imagine the shock that they must have experienced to put them in the state they're in and I can only hope and pray that I never experience it.

Our family lost my younger brother in August 2012 due to a brain aneurysm. He was literally dead before he hit the floor. While tragic and shocking to our family, I don't think I could compare it to losing a child. A childs death goes against the natural order of things.

I agree with you about the poor family, but this was kind of made political because of the endless use of the machine the family wanted.
I respect the loss, pain and all that and the hospitals are made to look cruel as they try to get the machine for other living people, but there are just so many machines like that and there are so many others in need that want a chance for life that could maybe make it.

I do think this is a sad lose / lose situation here.
