(SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE) (12-30) 17:04 PST Oakland – A judge has extended a temporary restraining order prohibiting Children’s Hospital Oakland from removing Jahi McMath from a ventilator, the hospital and family said Monday.

The temporary restraining order, which was scheduled to expire at 5 p.m., has been extended through 5 p.m. on January 7. Jahi’s family sought the extension as they sought to move the girl to a long-term care facility in New York that they said is willing to take her.

Jahi was declared dead by doctors at Children’s Hospital on Dec. 12 following complications from a tonsillectomy, and the family – who insists the girl moves in response to her mother’s voice – has been battling the hospital since.
