Before 13-year-old Jahi McMath went into a surgery meant to improve her quality of life, she had a terrible premonition.

“The worst thing about all of this is that Jahi told my sister, ‘I don’t want to get this surgery, something bad is going to happen. I’m not going to wake up,’ ” Jahi’s uncle Omari Sealey told CNN in a phone interview Monday.

Jahi went in to have her tonsils taken out. Now, the Oakland, California, girl is brain dead, her family says, and they are fighting to keep her on a ventilator.

They have presented the hospital with a cease-and-desist letter aimed at preventing the hospital from taking her off of life support, family attorney Chris Dolan told CNN Tuesday.
