(Fox News) Jahi McMath, the 13-year-old California girl who was declared brain dead after complications from tonsil surgery, is reportedly doing “much better physically.”

In her first public update in over a month, Jahi’s mother, Nailah Winkfield, released a letter on Facebook informing her followers of Jahi’s status, stating that she sees changes in her daughter that “give [her] hope.” Winkfield said she has spent the past month focusing on Jahi’s health, and she had to withdraw from the public eye for safety and privacy reasons.

In the letter, Winkfield also thanked everyone who had supported her as she fought to move her daughter to another medical facility.
