OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The mom of a California girl is asking for prayers for her 13-year-old who a hospital says is brain dead following a routine tonsillectomy.

The family of Jahi (juh-HY') McMath got a judge to keep Children's Hospital Oakland from removing the teen from a ventilator, but the judge says an independent doctor must examine her.

Jahi bled profusely following the surgery and went into cardiac arrest.
