There are four other relevant posts that I want to highlight here in case anyone missed them or didn't get pinged. These are a general Terri thread troll alert, an especially thoughtful post about the sincere effort that FReepers are making in Terri's behalf, the Father's Love Letter , and remarks made by Jim Robinson on this issue and reposted here by lonevoice.
This thread serves as a place for posting all new general information and references, along with links following Terri's case, plus information on cable news and talk radio shows dealing with the issue, court cases and press releases. This is also the place to post contact information, prayers and general discussion.
If you have something that qualifies as BREAKING NEWS or FRONT PAGE NEWS, please post it on a separate thread in that category in order to give it maximum exposure and then post a link to the article/thread here so that it will be included in the next update of links. Also, if you post links to articles from original sources and there is also a thread on FR, please link to the FR thread. Many original links become corrupt over time and we want to be able to access the information at will.
There was a tremendous amount of information posted on the previous thread. For anyone who hasn't been following the daily threads, links to relevant posts and information from the previous thread are contained in the body of the present one. I have found that very helpful in trying to find something later. You people are doing a spectacular job of getting information out and also in helping to keep all of us updated here. What a great joint effort. This fight, to me, illustrates beautifully what Free Republic is about and what it means to be a FReeper. Way to go FRiends. Keep up the good work!

Makes you wonder what MS did to Terri to break hers.
Very interesting point, about the femur being the toughest bone in the body to break. It is also the longest and thickest bone. I think Dr. Baden was right on when he said Terri sustained injuries from foul play, consistent with TRAUMA or a CAR ACCIDENT, and not a potassium imbalance.
When did this start in Florida?
Yeah, all those abnormalities on her bone scan, the stiff neck, oxygen deprivation, clutching her throat.....yeah, those were probably just from a potassium imbalance. Unfreakinbelievable, this guy.
She took a heck of a fall and beat herself up pretty good, didn't she? (MS BS alert)
It's sickening, that he got away with this...till now.
"In a study published in the June 1991 Archives of Neurology, it was found that of 84 patients with a firm diagnosis of PVS, 58 percent recovered consciousness within three years."
Thank you for bringing that out. That time (three years) coincides with Michael's discontinuation of any effort at rehabilitation, does it not?
You pretty much covered all the points, sweetliberty, but one of the first things I would do for Terri, once she has escaped the clutches of the Husband from Hell and the Attorney from Hell ~ I'd put a little kitten in her hands or under her chin ~
Pegita, I have been thinking the SAME THING....she has had a desire to be a vet. What she needs is to hold a kitty that purrs,or have a sweet puppy brought to her bedside. I have a beautiful collie that I would love to bring and come to Florida to " visit" Terri ......I pray that God will allow this to be so.
In Your Name, and For YOUR sake Dear Father, let it be so.
Campbell said he did not know when the payments stopped or how much the outstanding bills were. Last week, Felos and Bushnell told reporters that Terri Schiavo receives Social Security benefits and Medicaid for some basic care costs. A fund for indigent patients run by the Hospice of the Florida Suncoast paid for up to $5,000 a month of hospice care, they said.
Hospice Woodside is receiving no Medicare or Medicaid money for Terri Schiavo, Campbell said.
"No one's tax dollars are paying for hospice care," he said. He said that Felos has told him that the estate owes numerous parties more than $100,000.
I think this is utterly ridiculous! Either they paid or they didn't pay. That should be pretty easy for someone in their accounting/bookkeeping dept to find. Oh, wait! Isn't this the hospice that has convicted felons (embezzlement) working for them? I bet they taught their new employer a trick or two. And then proceeded to rip them off. Maybe that's why it's never been paid.
