(FOX 2) – Doctors at Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor declared 14-year-old Bobby Reyes brain dead. Right now, he is on life support.

But his family was not going ready to say goodbye. They took the hospital to court to give their son a chance. On Wednesday the family got the news they had hoped for, finding a new hospital for him.

“This is what we have been praying for,” said Sarah Jones, the boy’s mother.

It is the first time Jones said she has smiled in more than two weeks since her son Bobby had a severe asthma attack.

“He told me to call 911 and Bobby doesn’t complain so I knew it was serious and I took him to the firehouse and they didn’t answer the door,” she said. “I was banging and screaming and he got out the car and he fell – and that’s when I did the CPR and he got life-flighted [to Mott].”

Doctors at CS Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor declared him brain dead, ready to take him off life support. CONTINUE
