I would like to thank each and everyone of you for your financial donations and prayers. I was just informed that the hospital my daughter was going to be airlifted to has backed out due to lack of Cooperation from Children's Hospital Oakland. My family and I are still striving to find a location that will accept her in her current condition. All donations will go torwards the fight to keep her on life support. Let us pray that some one will have the heart to accept her despite what Children's Hospital says. So that we can get her air lifted away from this place as soon as possible.

Today makes one year that I walked my daughter into the hospital to get a routine tonsillectomy and by the end of the night her life and my life changed forever. Today is hard for me because I assured my daughter she would be ok. I know I didn't cause her injury but as a mother it kills me daily to know that there was nothing I could do to stop it even tho I pleaded numerous times for someone to come help my daughter. Jahi's life is worth more to me than my own and I will fight to save her life even if it kills me. One year later and I still have her here with me despite the fact I was told she wouldn't make it more than a few weeks before she started to deteriorate and her brain would liquify. NONE OF THAT HAS HAPPENED!!! Her brain is still in tact and her skin is looking better than mine. She recently just had some lab work done and her labs look pretty good no changes needed to be made all her organs are fully functional and she is still responding to my commands if I catch her in the right mood, like any other teenager sometimes she cooperates with no problem and some days she doesn't. Once again I want to thank everyone for every donation, positive thought and faithful prayer it is because of your beautiful hearts and generosity that I was able to wake up this morning kiss my daughter and tell her I love her one year later!!! God is awesome and he has blessed me and Jahi to cross paths with some amazing people YOU! May you all continue to be blessed. #Jahiisalive

Hello Everyone I wanted to take this time out to thank you all for every donation every prayer and every positive thought you send Jahi's way. Jahi is physically stable. All of her organs are fully functional, her skin is flawless and all of her joints are nice and loose. She is a real life sleeping beauty. She is alot more responsive to my voice now than what she used to be. If you catch her at the right time she confirms that she knows left from right a leg from an arm a thumb from an index finger ect...... Once she follows the command it seems to just wipe her out so I try not to over do it but sometimes I'm so excited I can't help but to keep pushing her. It is amazing to me how something so small as a wiggle of a finger can mean so much!!! I love my daughter very much and I have watched her progress from December until now. There is definitely an improvement. She recently just had an MRI done and it does show damage but it also shows brain structure and blood flow. She had a lot of other test done as well and they confirmed what I already knew. JAHI CAN HEAR ME!!! Her EEG shows brain waves which I was told she didn't have when she was in California. I can not express the happiness I felt when I seen with my own eyes that my daughter had a brain with structure. I was told previously that it would be liquefied or have holes in it because it had been without blood flow and oxygen for 9 months. That is not the case with my daughter. Every person is different and every person heals differently. Jahi has also started puberty!! She started her menstruation a couple of months ago and it comes on time and last 3-5 days like any normal female. If you really think about it Jahi is capable of giving life how can something dead give life? Thank you all for your donations, kind words of encouragement and PRAYER. Please keep praying for Jahi that is the most important thing you could ever give her. I believe more than anything it is the positive thoughts and faithful prayers that have been keeping her going. We will pray for you all as well thank you.

Im so sorry about not giving any new updates, I was locked out of this account :-( Once again thank you all for supporting Jahi and most importantly praying for her. Jahi is still sleep but physically stable! No pic lines, no catheters, no I.V, she maintains all her vitals on her own, no medicines needed. I am giving her lots of vitamins and fish oil thru her feeding tube. She moves around so much that we have to put pillows around her bed. She responds to pain, cold and touch. She can turn her head from left to right and her ventilator is set to room air so she is not getting any extra oxygen like she was before. Her skin is flawless and she gets a mani and pedi every week done by me (mom) She gets physical therapy three times a week and never has a stiff joint! All organs are healthy and fully functional! She is such a fighter! Remember she didnt get any nutrition for 28 days from the other hospital and she recovered from that quickly. Prayer is so powerful! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I tell Jahi everyday about all the love and support she has been receiving from people all over the world. I am truelly amazed by your kindness. God bless you all
