She WILL live, but she won't be as 'able' because she has been denied therapy all these years (thanks to her supposed 'husband')

I just pray that her parents will be able to bring some kind of joy into her life after all this is said & done. MS has done his best to see to it that she has NO outside stimulation or inter-action with others. No therapy, no love. In essence, he has actually tried to kill her while she was still alive. Hasn't worked, Michael.

Better luck next time.

by LAURA GRIFFIN.
St. Petersburg Times. St. Petersburg, Fla.: Nov 12, 1992. pg. 3.B

see article at
http://pqasb.pqarchiver.com/sptimes/

(excerpt)

Tuesday night, a jury awarded Mrs. Schiavo and her husband, Michael, more than $2-million in a lawsuit they brought against the gynecologist who never asked about her medical or nutritional history while treating her.

During the trial, attorneys for the Schiavos showed a film of a day in Mrs. Schiavo's life at Sabal Palms Nursing Home in Largo. Although she's in a vegetative state, said St. Petersburg lawyer Glenn Woodworth, "you can tell she has some sense of her predicament."

"It's a tragic case," Woodworth said. "She was on the threshold of her life. They were ready to start a family . . . (On the film) she knows her husband and looks into his eyes."

As a child, Mrs. Schiavo was heavy. As a teenager, she weighed about 200 pounds. But she weighed only 120 pounds at age 25. She kept her weight off through a dangerous eating disorder, bulimia, which involves vomiting after eating.

The couple had been married about six years when Mrs. Schiavo began thinking she was pregnant because she kept missing her menstrual periods.

Her family doctor referred her to Dr. Stephen Igel, an obstetrician-gynecologist in Clearwater. But she wasn't pregnant, Woodworth said. She was missing her periods because of poor nutrition.

Woodworth and Miami lawyer Gary Fox maintained that Igel saw Mrs. Schiavo four times over a year and never asked about her nutrition and never noticed the loose skin and stretch marks resulting from her substantial weight loss.

"There were no questions about weight loss, eating habits or anything," Fox said. "She had significant stretch marks on her thighs. This was something a prudent gynecologist would not miss."

Igel treated only the symptoms, he said, not the cause.

On Feb. 24, 1990, after a year of treatment, Michael Schiavo heard a thud in the bathroom. When he went to see what happened, he found his wife crumpled on the floor. She had suffered a heart attack, Fox said.

"I think there are a lot of gynecologists out there who are treating women with Teri's symptoms in an ordinary way," Fox said. "But it's not an ordinary problem."

Igel's attorney, Kenneth Deacon, could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

Fox said Igel's attorney contended that Mrs. Schiavo should have disclosed her problem and that even if he had suspected and asked, she probably would have kept it from him because bulimics are often secretive.

The jury agreed partly with the defense. They originally awarded the Schiavos more than $6-million but found that she was 70 percent at fault. So they subtracted her liability from the award, bringing it down to $2-million, her attorneys said.

The verdict could have been higher, Woodworth said, if the jury hadn't found that because of the bulimia, Mrs. Schiavo had a life expectancy of only 17 more years.

Woodworth said he and Fox questioned the jury's decision to decrease the award and will discuss with Circuit Judge Phillip Federico whether it is legal.

The couple also sued Mrs. Schiavo's family doctor, Joel Prawer, but Prawer settled earlier this year for an undisclosed amount, Woodworth said.

Michael Schiavo has stayed with his wife and takes care of her, Fox said. He is in nursing school so that he can care for her on his own, Fox said.

"This is the kind of guy whose wedding vows are just that - vows," Fox said. "Ironically, Tuesday (the day of the verdict) was their eighth wedding anniversary."

To Fox, the case represents a larger problem: a dangerous societal pressure placed on women to be thin.

"I think it's important that women who have these eating disorders know the downside. I don't think they know how dangerous it is," he said.

>> Possibly Michael was still having her medical records sealed.

It has been said that the bone scan was indeed sealed until three (?) years ago, when it figured in some legal proceeding. I've also heard that most of Terri's medical records remain sealed, on Michael's orders (presumably rubberstamped by the judge). Don't take any of the above as gospel until we can come up with documentation. Pat Anderson would know.

One would think the bone scan would have been damning to Michael had it been available at the malpractice trial.

Ohio-thanks for reprinting this here!

ALL-Please see post #107 and read it all...the award was more than we thought, Michael promises to tend to Terri, Micheal is cast as an absolute angel. This article so contradicts what this man has done in the last ten years it needs to be broadcast to the heavens. To Sean, and Glenn Beck, and Larry King and Greta and News Max and World Net Daily and to the ACLJ, and to everyone you know who would care!

If ever there was a damning article against Michael, isn't this it?

This is from the St Petersberg Times, Nov, 1992-and speaks to the settlement Michael received.

Barnett Bank Trust Company v. C. Stephen Igel MD, Pinellas County Circuit Case No. 92-939-15 -- http://www.terrisfight.org/Headlines/Civil_Lawsuit.htm

#107 has excerpt from St. Pete Times article -- http://pqasb.pqarchiver.com/sptimes/

Dr. Igel is still active in Pinellas Cty; seems is well regarded. I wondered if this went to trial because it seemed a weak case.

I've wondered if Felos has something on Greer as well. Greer is a two-term frmr Pinellas County commissioner. (http://www.terrisfight.org/Headlines/Civil_Lawsuit.htm)

I wonder if Fox made this comment before or after Michael Schiavo removed her wedding and engagement rings from Terri's hand and had them made into a ring for himself.

On Feb. 24, 1990, after a year of treatment, Michael Schiavo heard a thud in the bathroom. When he went to see what happened, he found his wife crumpled on the floor. She had suffered a heart attack, Fox said.

Let me get this straight now. On LKL he heard the thump and found her at the bottom of the stairs.

Didn't he also say in another interview that he heard the thump and found her in the hallway?

Gee, it's so difficult to keep up with the lies!

Well-this comment was printed in 1992-so it was probably just before....2,000,000 doesn't go very far when you promise to make someones life as good as possible with it and then decide, instead, to use it to fund attorneys willing to see that person murdered, legally.

He probably had the rings molded into a ring for Jodi. (Oh yikes---what if he didn't do that at all...but simply GAVE Jodi Terri's wedding ring? Wonder if the Schindler's ever looked at Jodi's finger when she was the prison guard, sent to watch them, as they visited Terri.

Help - This has nothing to do with your remarks, as I need to know how to do something. How do you post without going into someone else's post? I'm not even sure my terminology is right. But, I've had to go into someone else's remarks in order to post my remarks. Also, are there instructions as how to get something copied in a post, like an e-mail, something from the net, another post, etc. And, how are italics, underscores, large/small fonts, etc. done? Thanks, SweetLiberty for your help. If anyone else wants to answer, too, that'd be great.

Without reading the trial transcripts, we're all just speculating. I would speculate that it was Schiavo's attorneys who demanded a jury trial. No way would the defense attorneys want the Schindlers, Michael and Terri to be in front of a jury. It's hard to imagine more sympathetic witnesses. The jury would see a very young, physically beautiful woman in a severely brain damaged state, possibly brought into the courtroom in a wheelchair. They would see a young, devoted husband who wants to become a nurse so he can bring Terri home and spend the rest of his life caring for her every need. At the time of the trial, I would guess that Terri's parents did everything within their power to make sure Terri got the maximum possible award for her rehabilitation and care. That would've included testifying about the loving, made-in-heaven marriage between Terri and Michael.

I'm not a lawyer, but I think the defendants would've been committing legal suicide to even suggest to a jury that the tragedy that befell Terri, her husband, and her devoted family had anything to do with spousal abuse.

I've read interviews with the Schindlers, their attorney, and Terri's friends all saying there is no proof she had an eating disorder. They seem to admit there's some possibility of that, but it isn't a certainty. The malpractice defendants had to have some legal theory about Terri's contributory negligence, or they would've been libel for up to $20 million. There had to be some reason given as to why this seemingly healthy and very young woman's heart suddenly stopped beating. Since Shiavo's attorneys sued on the basis of the undiagnosed potassium imbalance, that's what the defense had to prove they didn't cause. Terri had lost nearly 80 pounds since her marriage and was going to a gyno for diagnosis/treatment of missed menstrual periods, both possible symptoms of an eating disorder. Michael and the Schindlers were unable to testify that Terri did not have an eating disorder. This seems like the best winning argument the defendants could've proferred.

It would've been a very different case if Michael Schiavo had been the target of a criminal investigation. According to what we've read here and there, the ER staff where Terri was taken that night was suspicious enough to call law enforcement. The police questioned Terri's father about Michael, and Terri's father said there was no reason to suspect foul play. Under the circumstances, with a wife and daughter fighting for her life in an ICU, I think many law enforcement agencies would've just closed the book, quietly walked away, and given the family their privacy at such a painful time.

I'm a little too busy right now to get into detail at this time, but if you still have questions, drop me a note- either here or in an internal email- and I'll try to explain how I do these things. It's really pretty easy; you just need a few tips how to do it.

Just delete the name in the box and put "All" there or someone you want to respond to.

Thanks, backhoe - appreciate your help. I'm not desperate - anytime will do. However, this is really embarrasing, but, how do I drop you an e-mail? Now, I'm really feeling stupid.

LOL! Next thing you know you'll be wanting to know about moose and cheese and AYBABTU and viking kitties and how to tell if something is hugh or merely series.

I assume by "somebody else's remarks" you mean that you have to hit "post reply" and the name of that poster shows up in the "to" field. That can be modified at will. You can add the names of other posters, as many as you like, by separating the screen names with semi-colons, or you can remove all names by simply highlighting the name in the "to" field and deleting, that way it posts to no one in particular.

Here are a few links you might find helpful. I think we have all had your dilemma in our early FReeping days.

The Schindler's were probably not lying about the bruises. I have tell you, as others here can too, they are very sweet and very trusting. They probably believed whatever explanation Michael gave them. You have to remember too that Michael and Terri lived with them for a while. I think that, for a long time, the Schindler's accepted Michael as a son (and we all know that nobody wants to think negatively about their "son").

Are you practicing in Florida? We seem to be uncovering a "good-ole-boy" network there that is very disturbing. We could sure use your help.

Don't- it's one of those "plain as the nose on your face" features that is hard to notice unless you are looking for it! See that "private reply" in

That's the internal email function here... just drop me a note so I'll remember to get back to you tomorrow-- the wife & dog are already giving me dirty looks, so I have to return to my househusband role and drop offline soon. Dang it...

Others can do better than I, but I'll at least TRY to answer, jackibutterfly

Help - This has nothing to do with your remarks, as I need to know how to do something. How do you post without going into someone else's post?

When you hit "Post Reply" you will aanswer directly to that person. Check the window above where you actually type the message. You'll see it as "To: (use semi-colons to seperate multiple recipients)" In the "To" box you can change or add to the person you're replying to.

Also, are there instructions as how to get something copied in a post, like an e-mail, something from the net, another post, etc.

Use the "copy and paste" like an e-mail. Then you must worry about formatting. That i will try to explain when I attempt to answer ---

And, how are italics, underscores, large/small fonts, etc. done?

To seperate paragraphs use < p> (Only without that space before the "p")< p>

Example.

To use italics, do the same, < i>once again, without the blank space, use < /i> to turn off italics.< p>

< u>Underscore< /u> works the same. The "/" turns < font color="Red">OFF< /font> a command.

I hope I'm not getting you too confused!

< b>turns on bold and < /b> turns bold off.

< font size="6">Makes a fairly large font, < /font> turns it off.

HOpe this helps a little, jackibutterfly!

I was impressed with Jay Sekulow from the ACLJ on Hardball last nite (Wed nite). He did a great job defending Terri's interests and the concept of right to life for disabled people.

HINO - Husband in Name Only. That's the perfect term for Michael Schiavo.
