Terri's Former Nurse Accuses Michael Schiavo From April 1995 to August 1996, Carla Sauer Iyer was one of Terri Schiavo's caretakers at Palm Garden in Largo, Fla.
This morning on Fox News' "Fox and Friends" program, she gave a frightening account of Michael Schiavo's actions and words, and also a hopeful description of Terri Schiavo's condition at that time. Ms. Iyer said that Terri could: Interact with staff. Laugh. Talk - saying words like "mommy," "help me" and "hi." Let you know if she was in pain. React reflexively on command. Interviewer Steve Doocey asked Carla why, in her opinion, Michael Schiavo was not telling people this. She answered that she believes "he wants her to die." Doocey then revealed that Carla was fired from the care facility because of a disagreement with Michael Schiavo in an incident where she claims he injected Terri with insulin. Ms. Iyer said that after Michael visited Terri one day for about 20 minutes, with the door shut, she went in after he left and saw Terri sweating, lethargic and "crying hysterically." Carla checked Terri's blood sugar, and it was barely reading on the glucometer. She also saw a vial of "insulin concealed in the trash bin." According to Carla, there were needle marks underneath Terri's breast, under her arms and near her groin. Carla talked to the police and then went to the director of nursing, who was very upset that Carla had gone to the police. She doesn't think Michael Schiavo was a caring husband and claimed to Fox News that he refused to send Terri to rehabilitation of any kind. Doocey then said that he had heard a story from another nurse who tried to feed Terri, and when Michael Schiavo found out about it, in Doocey's words, "it all hit the fan." Carla concurred, saying that Terri could be fed by mouth - jello and pudding, etc. - without aspirating, but that when Michael found out Terri was being fed by mouth, he told the nurses he was going to get them fired. Doocey then asked Carla why she was coming forward now. She answered that she wanted "to let the truth be known. I was one of the very few people who was able to see Terri. She would interact with all the visitors. ... I want everyone to see Terri."
GOD Save the Vulnerable from the Bullies
TERRI = Breathes, Eats, Speaks / MICHAEL = "When is that B-TCH gonna die?"
Criminal action needs to be taken against him based on these nurses' statements.
Terri has the characteristics of an infant. I seriously doubt she is unhappy in her condition. She might not have a concept of time and consequences, but that doesn't mean she doesn't enjoy life.
Terri Schiavo is being used as a diversion from this country's real problems... Namely, Illegal immigration, Activism, Multi-culturalism and the ACLU, just to name a few...
Congrats... It's working to near perfection!
She was fired because she reported it to the police.
This woman risked being sued for libel by speaking about this.
She just put everything on the line.
Why is she not credible? This has been in the courts for a decade. So she must either be not credible or the courts are bad.
Those issues are important but so is this.
There are much larger issues here than just the life of one woman.
Escaped from your facility again I see.
This creep of a husband is an abuser in disguise. Its time for a criminal charge to be brought against him based on these new affidavits. FREE TERRI from the legally sanctioned actions of this monster and the judicial deathocrats.
Was she on the show in person or was it a telephone interview ?
I didn't see it, Just heard Rush play it.
Gosh, ya think?
Are you actually a conservative? Have you paid any attention to anything going on in the past decade vis-a-vis the runaway court system?
You are here at FR every day. Do you not read anything here?
or his continued attempts to finish the job -
This is a frightening scenario - not just for Terri and others who will follow the same fate, but for our very country.
How long can a country stand that murders it's innocents? How many millions more before God says "Pull the plug on America?"
That's funny. I've asked myself the same thing about Destro. Can't quite put my finger on it yet. ;-)
I think we can walk and chew gum at the same time. The Schiavo case points out the tyranny of the judicial system, IMO one of this country's most important issues.
Look what I found on eBay:
oh yeah, why have I not thought of that. We have other problems, so let Terri be murdered...she is only one tiny life among all the other problems.
better Hope it isn't, one day, your life hanging in the balance to be decided on by folk like you
