From video Terri Big Eyes; see it at www.terrisfight.org-- http://www.terrisfight.org/
Terri starts out apparently asleep. A doctor wakes her to start his tests.
Doctor: Terri. Open your eyes up...
Terri: (Startled at hearing her name. She starts moving her mouth and fluttering her eyes, like a person who is just waking up)
Doctor: Open your eyes, Terri open your eyes
Terri: (slowly at first, Terri struggles to open her eyes, then turns toward the doctor, and opens her eyes a normal amount)
Doctor: There you go, good.
Terri: (then, either to show off(?) or wanting to perform well, she leans further forward toward the doctor, looks straight at him and opens her eyes as WIDE AS SHE CAN. >> Note the WRINKLES ACROSS HER FOREHEAD caused by her also RAISING HER EYEBROWS as high as possible )
Doctor: [now obviously impressed] GOOD!! GOOD JOB! GOOD JOB YOUNG LADY! Good Job.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Bunny Story
She (Terri) once ran into the house crying because she had run over a rabbit. No one could console her.
Her father went outside, came back, and said she was mistaken, there was no dead rabbit in the road.
When she finally calmed down and left the room, her dad said, "Man, she nailed it."
Keep fighting! ((((((Terri))))))
Happy Birthday, Terri Dear, may God Bless your precious life and fighting heart.
God works in mysterious ways, his wonders to perform, and it becomes clearer each day that you, Teri,are serving God with each day of your life. From right there in your bed, you have touched lives all over the world, in positive ways.
From what I have learned, even those who would have denied your life support, previousely, seem to have had a change of heart, we pray that is so.
May God bless you and your wonderful family, Teri.
You remain in my prayers.
Happy Birthday, Terri.

Happy birthday Terri and love and blessings to you and your family.
Thank you for starting this thread! Hospice informed us that they will not allow a prayer vigil for Terri on their grounds. They have new sod and they don't want us to destroy the grass.
You are beloved to my heart, sweet Terri, my sister in Christ, and I want to Praise our King with you, Share Eternity with you, Glorifying our God together Forever in His Kingdom of Peace and Love. I Love you, and Praise our Merciful One for Being your Shield and your Protector for all these years. You are a Blessing to many, dearest sister, and I wish you a Blessed and Happy, Happy Birthday, Secure in the Love of your family, and in the Eternal Love of the Sweet King of kings.
Happy Birthday and Dominus nos benedicat!
I pray that this year is the year that Terri is finally freed from her windowless prison - the "hospice" where she has been kept against the will of her family for over a decade.
On this, her birthday, I ask all who care for the disabled to give Terri this gift: take your precious charges out with you to see the trees, the sky, the sun. Let them hear music, let them pet cat, or touch a child. Give them a balloon, or let them watch a happy show on the TV. Let them sit near the window and have the light of the outside world shine on them
All these things are denied Terri - let them be your gift to her if only in spirit.
God bless her Mother, Father, Sister and Brother, and may He keep them in the palm of His Hand. May this year see Terri at home once again with those who love her.
If anyone wants on or off my ProLife Ping List, please notify me here or by freepmail.
Love has kept you alive so far.
I pray that love will seep into the evil ones who keep you imprisoned
And that they will free you to sit in the sunshine,
hear the birds sing,
and enjoy the loving care of your family.
And may God's love be with you always.
Terri's 41st Birthday ping! If anyone would like to be on/off my Terri ping list, please let me know here or by Freepmail.
Happy Birthday, Terri!
Of course not. Wouldn't want to kill the precious living grass. /sarcasm
It's not living grass, it's vegetative! < / sarcasm>
Happy Birthday, Terri. May there be many more and a miracle.
