Posted on 03/16/2005 10:06:33 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- A state appeals court has refused to block the expected removal of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube on Friday.
Yes, her name was Cindy Shook. She has since gotten married to someone else, but she and Michael were planning to live together back in 91/92, but Michael's attorney didn't think it looked too good to go before a jury begging for $ to take care of his disabled wife while he was shacking up with Cindy, so they never did live together.
Too bad Terri's cats got euthanised for it. Michael didn't want them to not get along with Cindy's dog(s). He didn't try to find them a home, he just had them killed because he didn't know what else to do with them. I bet Terri would be thrilled to learn about that. Wonder if he ever told her? Terri loved animals!
But that's getting a little off topic. Michael has apparently been having affairs even before Terri collapsed. Little bit like Bill Clinton in that regard. Of course I will admit these are rumored affairs, but from pretty credible sources. Until they are substantiated I guess it would only be fair to Michael to call the other relationships he's been in alleged affairs.
Personally, I'd rather see food and water withheld from you until you die a miserable death than Terri be subjected to such a sentence. After all, she's not hurting anyone, but the world would be improved by the extirpation of your venomous and ignorant absence of compassion.
I have to second that wholeheartidly and with all candor...
He didn't waste any time, did he?
Incorrect. The 'court' has declared that no one is allow to give her a spoon either. Her family is forbidden to even feed her jello. why? is that 'extraordinary means'?

The CAUSE came on to be heard on November 15, 2002 upon the Emergency Motion to Hold Ruling in Abeyance
Pending Development of Additional Medical Evidence filed herein by Respondents, Robert and Mary Schindler.
Before the court were Patricia Fields Anderson, Esquire, and Lawrence D. Crow, Esquire, attorneys for Respondents; and George J. Felos, Esquire, attorney for Petitioner. The unverified Motion had been received by the court via fax on November 11, 2002 and the court scheduled this hearing in order for evidence to be presented to determine if there was a sufficient basis to hold a full evidentiary hearing.
The Respondents presented three affidavits in support of their motion, those affidavits being from themselves and from Eleanor Dreschsel. Petitioner presented affidavits of James Carnahan, M.D. and Eugene Alcazaren, M.D. The court then heard argument of counsel in support of and in opposition to the Emergency Motion. The court has considered the affidavits, the argument of counsel and the Emergency Motion and accordingly rules as follows.
The thrust of the Emergency Motion centers around a 1991 bone scan report by W. Campbell Walker, M.D. The report indicates that the bone scan was performed at Mediplex Rehab in Bradenton, Florida on Terry [sic] Schiavo in March of 1991. The report indicates some fractures which Dr. Campbell felt were caused by trauma, the major one being on the right femur. Dr. Walker concluded, "the patient has a history of trauma". The affidavits in support of the Emergency Motion relating to this bone scan report simply established that affiants did not have actual knowledge of that report, although counsel in argument conceded that the report was available, and was in the possession of Respondents' several attorneys over time. There has been no suggestion that the bone scan report was secreted or the information withheld intentionally from anyone. The affidavits as they relate to room temperature do not remotely suggest an issue for the court to pursue. In opposition to the Emergency Motion, Petitioner submits affidavits from two physicians at Mediple Rehab who dispute the conclusions of Dr. Campbell. One of these affiants had actually ordered the subject bone scan.
The court concludes that while it might be interesting to pursue the issue of trauma as it may have occurred almost twelve years ago, that has nothing to do with Theresa Marie Schiavo in 2002 and the Mandate of the Second District Court of Appeal in this cause rendered October 17, 2001. Accordingly, it is
ORDERED AND AJDUDGED [sic] that the Emergency Motion to Hold Ruling in Abeyance Pending Development of Additional Medical Evidence be and the same is hereby denied.
DONE AND ORDERED in Chambers at Clearwater, Pinellas County, Florida this 22 day of November 2002.

Ending chemotherapy and going to a hospice is a completely different situation. A person who is dying of cancer can have their life prolonged sometimes with additional chemotherapy but at a cost- often in suffering and (lack of) quality of life. In a hospice, the patient can be made comfortable, given morphine or other strong pain killing drugs as they die of their cancer. The difference here is that instead of being defensive, the judge and m. Schiavo are being offensive. They aim to literally kill Terri- not allow her to die naturally. I am a perfectly healthy 50 year old woman but if I were not allowed food or water, I would die, too.
Then you apparently share my view of what a marriage is. Most Freepers agree with us about that, but I'm sure you've run into at least a couple who are utterly confused.
Could it be that 'sufficient evidence' doesn't exist because the 'less than honorable' judge dismissed the sheriff's report and then it was lost in an office where Michael's mistress's mother works?
If I were in Michael Shiavo's situation and I thought that I could not honor my vows to my husband, I would divorce him. I would not disrespect him by carrying on with other men, whether he was aware of it or not. It's really a non-issue for me anyway because when I said "forsaking all others as long as you both shall live", I meant it.

TERRI DOES NOT HAVE MUCH LONGER.
Thanks for posting the whole text, Lexinom. Ain't that judge just grand?
It's nice to know that apes are backing you. Thanks.
Well, I'm off my friends.
Vaya con Dios...
