I wish I could be there too. I guess we do what we can from a distance.
My family spent yearly vacations in nearby Bradenton, FL and we even lived there for a few years on 2 seperate occasions. I haven't been back since '87 tho and with the state of affairs in FL I'm not sure I would want to go back.

Thanks for clarifying that Dr. Wolfson is not an MD, but a PhD. Still, his duties will include determining whether she can be rehabilitated, and I thought that might include looking at the diagnosis of PVS. Do you know if he can call in other MDs to offer fresh medical opinions? I didn't see that mentioned in this article, though it does say he won't be representing her interests, which might mean he won't have as much leeway as Pearse did, when he (Pearse) recommended that the feeding tube not be removed.

>> You claim to be well informed

A lie.

>> To enlighten you and disabuse you of your presumptions

Personal attacks like these are flagrant violations of forum rules, as I pointedly warned you the last time. You are on report for abuse.

You cited a datum from, quote, "the Cardiac Institute." I would like to see the rest of that med report if you or anyone here has it. Also any report from the Northside Hospital.

_REPOST WITH CORRECT ADDRESS FOR THE HOSPICE-ping your Terri lists


From Terrisfight.org)

Terri's Birthday

Terri's Birthday is December 3rd. So many people have contacted us, recently, to ask how they may participate. We are so delighted that so many people want to help Terri enjoy her special day and we appreciate the kindness that people have shown to Terri.

Because Terri's husband does not permit her to have flowers in her room, we ask that you consider doing something else that would be as meaningful. Here are some things you can do:


Join us in wishing Terri a very happy birthday.

Hospice Woodside
6774 102nd Avenue North
Pinellas Park, FL
33782-2909, US

You can send a card or a note to us at the foundation. We will deliver them all to Terri.

If you've placed a light in your window for Terri, please send us a picture.

Terri adores animals. If you have a picture of your favorite pet, feel free to send it along!

Terri enjoys music. Piano music, John Denver, Journey and Wham! are just some of her favorites. Since she has a CD player in her room, a CD would make a great birthday gift.

Terri enjoys lotions and nice-smelling things for her skin.

Would you like to send a personal message to Terri? Tape record your own message and we'll play it for her!

So many people have already sent a prayer to Terri on our Share a Prayer page. We read these to her as often as we can. Be sure to include yours.

Terri's husband does not permit her to receive physical therapy, but "stress balls" are great for relieving the contractures in her hands.


The Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation

It is also know locally as the Heart Institute. But I posted that she was admitted to "Northside Hospital and Heart Institute" whose "emergency room is staffed 24hrs by a team of doctors, nurses and technicians who have been specially trained in emergency cardiac care. The facility is nationally known as a training center for cardiologists.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one thinking that! Every time I hug my kitty, I wish Terri could have one, too -- my heart goes out to her there alone in her room. I hope how soon she gets out! I hope for the holidays -- she can spend that time with her family and their now HUGE extended family. [Hey, Mrs. Schindler -- can we (all) come over?!]

I do hope and pray for a good outcome, soon -- this has gone on WAY too long.

I'm not sure what you are trying to imply. The term stable condition means there are no major active medical issues and the patient's basic vital functions are not fluctuating or in need of support. It doesn't mean that the patient is cured or in anything even approaching "normal". I'm sure you have heard patients' conditions described as critical but stable condition. This means that the patient is at the time stable as above, however still in critical condition meaning that the patient's life is in the balance.

It's to bad, that Terri don't have her two cats with her
in that Jail Cell, it would of brought healing, and joy
to her, maybe that's why the **BEEP** KILLED them.

Her cats would of found a way to communicate, and confront
her, and Terri would of cared for them.

Animals have a way in healing humans, just like the Dolphins in the water...

Maybe MS KILLED them, because they were eye witnesses
to the attempted murder, and he felt that from them...
,or since Terri loved them so much & they loved her.
It was to punish her some more, and destroying her rings...
Maybe this is why, Terri crys when ***BEEP*** is in the room....

Micheal why, why, why are you doing this.....just a feeling

373mg.dl, I'm guessing. Isn't "normal" considered 80-120mg/dl before eating?

Also, remember how MS said on LKL that he picked her up in his arms and shook her and then made the phone calls? BS! Unless he flipped her back over on her stomach before making the calls! http://zimp.org/documents/SPPD%20Police%20Report%20022590.pdf

You have my respect for adopting a child with CP, pollywog.

The joy has been ALL OURS!! Actually our dear Saudia has exceeded all expectations. When we first got her they said she was a " veggie"...(where have I HEARD that term before??)...within months she was responding. She has a learning disability, but walks, and acts normal in most respects. She had surgery two years ago on her " bad leg"...and her spine is now giving her some problems, but WHAT A JOY she is.She received " President Bush's Honor of Achievement" when she graduated from grade school in June. Of course I wept! She is below grade level( in 7th grade and works about on a 5th grade level) but has she "Come a long way Baby!!" We also have a 25 year old autistic/deaf/ developmentally delayed son. He is a real handful but we wouldn't trade him for anything or anyone.!! God has blessed us so. No wonder Terri's case has gripped my heart.

It's true.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - An appeals court Tuesday lifted a stay which blocked a brain-damaged woman's husband's fight with Gov. Jeb Bush over a new law that restored her feeding tube.
The ruling by the 2nd District Court of Appeal in Lakeland is a victory for Michael Schiavo, who has fought his in-laws in court for years for the right to remove the tube, saying his wife, Terri, would not want to be kept alive artificially.

Michael Schiavo's attorney, George Felos, asked the appellate panel Monday to let his constitutional challenge to the new law move forward while Bush takes issue with failing to be served with a formal notice of the lawsuit and in Tallahassee.

The three-judge appellate panel agreed, and also denied a motion filed Friday by Bush's attorneys asking that all proceedings in the case be halted.

"It's very bad news for Terri and good news for the voices of death," said Pat Anderson, an attorney for Bob and Mary Schindler, the parents of Terri Schiavo.

Felos said he was pleased by the prompt ruling.

"I think it's an indication that the court recognizes that fundamental human rights are at stake here," Felos said.

The governor's office had no immediate reaction to the order. Bush's attorneys have until 5 p.m. Wednesday to file papers with their arguments on the constitutionality of new law in Circuit Court in Clearwater.

"The court has forced the governor to stop delaying this case and show up in court and explain why he should be permitted to meddle in this case," said Howard Simon of the American Civil Liberties Union and Michael Schiavo's co-counsel.

Michael Schiavo contends that the hastily passed law that let Bush order reinsertion of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube is unconstitutional because it violates her right to privacy and separation-of-power provisions of the Florida Constitution.

Terri Schiavo suffered severe brain damage in 1990 when her heart temporarily stopped, cutting off oxygen to her brain. Her parents dispute that she is in a vegetative state and believe her condition could improve with therapy.

Florida courts had repeatedly affirmed the right of Michael Schiavo to remove the tube. It was removed for six days when Bush ordered it restored Oct. 21.

Attorneys for the governor insist Felos must serve legal papers as required and argue the lawsuit must be filed in Tallahassee, the seat of state government.

Circuit Judge W. Douglas Baird issued an order Friday to let the lawsuit move ahead, but the appeals court issued a stay hours later on Bush's appeal.

"The governor should not be allowed to hide behind alleged procedural deficiencies to support further delay," Felos wrote.

Bush spokeswoman Alia Faraj said the governor is not trying to delay the case and just wants to ensure Felos follows proper procedure. She said the case should stop completely until procedural questions are settled.

Faraj said Felos is "basically trying to circumvent a lot of rules and procedures that are in place for a reason."

"We can only hope that those who value all of Terri's constitutional rights will give this the most careful consideration, including her rights to enjoy life and not be discriminated on the basis of her disability," Anderson said.

Doublespeak royale? Bush was sued. That's not "meddling." How about the "meddling" of the death ghouls with Terri's even more inalienable right to life?

You're preaching to the choir. Perhaps your post should be directed to those that splatter the Terri threads with prayers, religious quotes and dogma to support their position and attack those that disagree with them.

Maybe you could take up your complaint about prayers on Terri threads with this poster:

Well, I think all of you who fought this battle are to be commended. Saving this life and others who may be caught in the same predicament is a great thing. And I pray that it is not too late for Terri. I also know that the battle is far from over, but with your continued diligence and prayers, it can be won.

_______________________________________________________
From reviewing your comments page I see that you've been camped out on the Terri's daily threads since November 10th. Prior to that you camped out on the Laci Peterson threads where you claimed to be receiving hate mail in response to all your disruptions there. Did you vacate those threads when the abuse reports about your disruption became overwhelming?

I believe it's understood by everyone on the Terri daily threads that this is an activism thread for the shared purpose of helping Terri Schiavo regain her legal right to not be killed. The regulars on this daily thread have rather civily let it be known to you that your disruption is not welcome, yet you persist in this obssession. By now it should be clear to you that no one on this thread is buying what you're selling, nor will they, in spite of your mighty effort.

Isn't it time for you to move along to topics where your opinions might be better received?

Who knows what warpage lies ahead. Felos' wet dream is that the hurry up hearing ends up with the gavel banged "unconstitutional!" and Terri is starved while the courts take their sweet old time to develop the argument fully. I.e. first the verdict then the trial.

P.S. I hope Senator Jim King is REAL proud of himself for the monster he has let loose (his boastedly "strongest" right-to-die law in the country).

Witch 1: The three-judge appellate panel . . . denied a motion filed Friday by Bush's attorneys asking that all proceedings in the case be halted.

Witch 2: "The court has forced the governor to stop delaying this case and show up in court and explain why he should be permitted to meddle in this case," said Howard Simon of the American Civil Liberties Union and Michael Schiavo's co-counsel.

Witch 3: "I think it's an indication that the court recognizes that fundamental human rights are at stake here," Felos said.

                 William Shakespeare
                    from Macbeth

A dark Cave. In the middle, a Caldron boiling. Thunder.

            Enter the three Witches.

   1 WITCH.  Thrice the brinded cat hath mew'd. 
   2 WITCH.  Thrice and once, the hedge-pig whin'd. 
   3 WITCH.  Harpier cries:—'tis time! 'tis time! 

     1 WITCH.  Round about the caldron go; 
     In the poison'd entrails throw.— 
     Toad, that under cold stone, 
     Days and nights has thirty-one; 
     Swelter'd venom sleeping got, 
     Boil thou first i' the charmed pot! 

  ALL.  Double, double toil and trouble; 
     Fire burn, and caldron bubble. 

     2 WITCH.  Fillet of a fenny snake, 
     In the caldron boil and bake; 
     Eye of newt, and toe of frog, 
     Wool of bat, and tongue of dog, 
     Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting, 
     Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,— 
     For a charm of powerful trouble, 
     Like a hell-broth boil and bubble. 

  ALL.  Double, double toil and trouble; 
     Fire burn, and caldron bubble. 

     3 WITCH.  Scale of dragon; tooth of wolf; 
     Witches' mummy; maw and gulf 
     Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark; 
     Root of hemlock digg'd i the dark; 
     Liver of blaspheming Jew; 
     Gall of goat, and slips of yew 
     Sliver'd in the moon's eclipse; 
     Nose of Turk, and Tartar's lips; 
     Finger of birth-strangled babe 
     Ditch-deliver'd by a drab,— 
     Make the gruel thick and slab: 
     Add thereto a tiger's chaudron, 
     For the ingrediants of our caldron. 

  ALL.  Double, double toil and trouble; 
     Fire burn, and caldron bubble. 

     2 WITCH.  Cool it with a baboon's blood, 
     Then the charm is firm and good.

Jim King is responsible for this? Shame on him. Is he in bed with Felos and all these judges?
We have to find a way to by-pass these judges. Maybe the disabilities organizations can do something.
I've lost all confidence in these courts.

Hectate: 
O! well done! I commend your pains, 
And every one shall share i' the gains. 
And now about the cauldron sing, 
Like elves and fairies in a ring, 
Enchanting all that you put in. 

Witch 2: 
By the pricking of my thumbs, 
Something wicked this way comes. 



From Shakespeare's Macbeth, Act IV, Scene I

"This is also the place to post contact information, prayers and general discussion."

"Isn't it time for you to move along to topics where your opinions might be better received?"

I agree with you lonevoice, and I think there is likely a pretty strong consensus about daylate. He isn't here to contribute but to criticize, detract and spam the thread with his cut and paste nonsense which he can't support. We have suffered him through several thousand posts over at least 3 or 4 threads. Enough is enough!

Yep, thank the abortionaires for a lot of the precedent that has gone into this.

I should have italicized that line, too. You're right...that's what started all this mess. ALL OF IT.

If this is "meddling," God grant us a generation of "meddlers." Just as if the filibuster'd [hey, I can do a Shakespeare too] judges are neanderthals, then God send us a herd of King Kongs.
