Terri Groggy and Unresponsive: High fever last night likely due to infection caused by improper removal of the feeding tube

Topics: Action Items

According to a trusted source, Terri developed a high fever last night, most likely due to infection caused by improper removal of the feeding tube... she is groggy and unresponsive, and may not make it much longer.

So PLEASE GET THIS OUT ASAP...DIRECT CONGRESSIONAL REQUEST!!!!

Please if you have a fax machine take a moment and contact by fax the offices of Congressman Robert Wexler: 19th District of Florida - FAX 202 225-5974
Email here

and Earl Blumenauer - FAX 202 225-8941, Email here

Their voice mails are already full! These two are going to oppose the legislation today that will save Terri Schiavo. Please stress the following: (copy and paste if needed or write your own message)

This is NOT about interfering in states' rights. It is the job of the Federal Government to ensure that State Law is followed and that Terri Schiavo and others like her receive their right of due process, which to this point, has been denied. The federal amendment will ensure that Terri and other disabled people like her will receive a review of the procedures followed by state courts - a right everyone is entitled to, especially in matters of life and death.

Please stand up for the life of those who are unable to speak for themselves and pass the Incapacitated Persons' Legal Protection Act without delay. To allow Terri to die based on the hearsay testimony of a husband who has abandoned her, a lawyer who is a euthanasia advocate - and a judge who has allowed both state and federal law to be broken would be a gross travesty of justice. Judicial tyranny in this country must end!!

Most of all - please pray for Terri Schiavo.

We have to contact Governor Jeb Bush or President Bush to take her into protective custody immediately and provide her with proper medical treatment.

This is sad ... very sad!

Posted by: Miranda at March 20, 2005 2:21 PM

1. The Congress must enforce its subpoena and move to protect Terri right now until the hearings are held. That means US Marshals with medical teams need to place Terri under their care IMMEDIATELY. We should be flooding Congress and esp. Sen. Enzi with this demand.

2. Jeb Bush MUST invoke the "Emergency Protective Services Intervention" section of Florida statutes Chapter 415.1051(2). Note the term "Emergency".

Posted by: Bryan at March 20, 2005 2:24 PM

Filthy murderers probably just ripped the tube out... "It won't hurt her, she's brain dead!!" Well then if she isn't in any pain, then why it is so necessary to kill her?! You can't claim that you're "putting her out of her misery" and in the next breath say that she doesn't feel anything.

Posted by: JWL at March 20, 2005 2:27 PM

How horrible. How horrible indeed. Its too bad the MSM (mainstream media) doesn't allow the truth to be printed or reported. They air George Felos and his lies to get americans to believe him and then people don't learn the real truth.

Something interesting............

Her "husband" fits the profile of a wife abuser!


Pray Pray Pray. And Hope! We Congress and the Senate to act now to pass the bill. And we need Bush to sign it immediately. And we need her in protective custody NOW!

*is upset*

Posted by: ElizabethV at March 20, 2005 2:28 PM

Someone was asking earlier for a sample letter, so I thought I'd submit this email that I just dashed off to Wexler and Blumenaur. It's not very detailed but it's short and sweet. Feel free to use it or modify it for writing. Thanks everyone for all your hard work.

"I understand you are attempting to block a bill that would grant Terri Schiavo the opportunity to have her case investigated before her husband kills her off. Do NOT do this. Regardless of how you may feel about a patient's right to die, there are numerous irregularities in this case that need to be investigated. Please give Terri that right to have her case cleared before she gets killed. It doesn't look like she has much time. I repeat, do NOT block any bill designed to save her life and give her some basic rights she should have been given a long time ago.

The entire nation is watching.
Terri Schiavo is being tortured to death. Do not be a part of this travesty. Do the right thing."

Can't Jeb Bush do something to reinsert the tube?

Posted by: sujata at March 20, 2005 2:37 PM

Yes, Jab can. The question is: WHY HASN'T HE? I have been posting all over this blog the FACT that he ALREADY HAS THE AUTHORITY UNDER FLA. STATUTES CH. 415.1051(2)

WHY WON'T HE ACT? IF SHE DIES, I AM SWITCHING BACK TO THE CONSTITUTION PARTY.

SAME WITH THE PRESIDENT AND THE CONGRESS. TEHY NEED TO ENFORCE THEIR SUBPOENA. SEND IN THE US MARSHALS WITH MEDICAL TEAMS!!! WHAT IN THE WORLD IS SO HARD ABOUT IT?

Richard, ta, the supremes already refused to hear the appeal. According to them, it IS about states rights. Is this a good precedent, to allow the executive to override the judiciary?

Posted by: jinnderella at March 20, 2005 2:54 PM

This is so sad, that the woman who laughed and smiled a few short days ago with her mother, tried to beg for her life with her attorny is now dying.

There is no evidence that she's a vegetable, why do people believe that? There have been no medical tests to show lack of brain activity.

Posted by: carson at March 20, 2005 2:58 PM

She is not a vegetable. Have you met her? Have you? No, so just stfu, you don't know anything and obviously haven't bothered to so much as click your mouse a few times to find out the facts before you go condemning someone to death. Michael Schiavo, Judge Greer and those responsible who have no valid reason to starve another human to death (there IS no reason), I hope you rot in prison for the rest of your lives for this. Hell, even if by some miracle Terri is put into the care of her parents, I still think these others should be prosecuted for attempted murder. I can't believe how messed up this 'great country' is - and it just gets worse by the day it seems.

Posted by: demonsurfer at March 20, 2005 2:59 PM

Anyone who cares should call and email our Congressmen and Governor Bush to tell them to take her into protective custody NOW. She needs medical attention! Please, everyone... call, call, call, and pray!

Posted by: Sirena at March 20, 2005 3:04 PM

Love the use of the words 'hypocrit' and 'vegetable'.

As far as I know, Terri hasn't been turned into a turnip. She is a human being, who was given at the moment of her creation incredible dignity by God.

Those who know God, and strive with all their hearts, their lives, their being to serve Him would indeed be 'hypocrits' if they did not stand for Terri and her human dignity.

In the manner in which she 'has been dying for 15 years' - so have YOU. And, one day you may be the one being illegally starved to death for the sake of another's actions against you, or a judge's vanity, an attorney's powerlust or greed. When we stand up for your rights, will you call us hypocrits then?

Posted by: shana at March 20, 2005 3:17 PM

Dear L.F. They are reporting the Terri is unresponsive as apposed to her having been responsive up until yesterday. Only two out of 16+ doctors have said defintively that she is in a vegetative state, the rest said it was not possible to establish this without the appropriate tests, which have not been administered. Her condition isn't terminal (or at least wasn't until it was made terminal last Friday) and therefore she hasn't been 'dying for 15 years'.

Dear Jinnderella: It depends on how you look at it. For many people the immediate reality of imminent death and need to save a life has a higher priority than being concerned about political correctness and repurcussions that are only speculative presently. (please see my response to your comment about Terri's neocortical damage and rehabilitation potential posted yesterday). If you feel she wants to die, or it's o.k. to withhold her food and water, then you're likely going to be more concerned with the possible political consequences that that may result from bringing this case to a federal governement.

Posted by: Anna Nordin at March 20, 2005 3:18 PM

I am outraged that Terri's feeding tube was removed and this country is going to let her starve to death!! If this is the case where does it end? Dogs, Trees and even are cars are treated better then this. This is NOT a free country it is Hitler all over again!!!!! And someone needs to stop this slaughter imediately!!!!!!! Or are you going to wait until it is too late ? Do something Now! Terri is a innocent human being and NO ONE has the right or the say to put her to her death! She maybe needs extra care but in NO WAY does she deseverve death.. May GOD help her and the people who agree with the MURDER of Terri..

Posted by: Sharon Johnson at March 20, 2005 3:31 PM

I just email the President.
I called alos and was told to call back tomorrow at 9am.
I replied, "Terri might not be alive by then"
There was silence.
I hung up.

I hung up on the President..what's the world coming to?

Posted by: JoMarley at March 20, 2005 3:34 PM

Anna Nordin-- here's my criteria. I don't believe she pled for her life to the attorney. more likely that was just an autonomous response triggered by the attorney's distress.
if she can smile, laugh and move her eyes VOLUNTARILY, then she certainly could be taught a gestural protocol to express yes-no, like eye-blinks or look-this-way. They have not been able to do this in fifteen years. So, either they are incredibly stupid and haven't tried, or the smile/laugh/eye movement is autonomous, and not under her control. Have the Shindlers told anyone that they can't teach her a simple protocol? You better believe they've tried. Why on earth would anyone try to get her to say a sentence instead?

Posted by: jinnderella at March 20, 2005 3:36 PM

I was only logged off for two hours, and couldn't imagine it could get any worse! I just wrote to both President and Governor Bush:

=====

Mr. President and Mr. Governor,

Terri now has a high fever and infection from the vicious way those monsters
yanked her feeding tube out!! This is EXACTLY what they wanted, and she will be
cremated before we even know she's dead!! My God, My God, will you two PLEASE flip a coin as to which of you is going to take her into protective custody!?!

We are watching and crying all over America!!

God Bless you brothers. Terri needs you to ACT!!!

Posted by: Suzanne. at March 20, 2005 3:44 PM

Well, this situation certainly looks terminal now. Even if they restart hydration and provide antibiotics, the damage is probably going to be great. If they wait until Monday, they may as well be deciding if they'll cremate her or allow an autopsy since without fluids there's no way her kidneys can filter the bacterial toxins out.

Now, I just hope that the public and congress continues to come to grips with what to do in cases where people are diagnosed vegetative. If the study I mentioned earlier in a link is correct and up to 43% of people are misdiagnosed, then we can be causing terrible suffering by forcing them to die by dehydration. I'm not saying that Terri was misdiagnosed. Maybe she was, maybe not, the definitive tests IMHO were never run.

But surely we can come up with a better standard than what we're using presently if the current methodology is allowing people to fall through the cracks of misdiagnosis.

I would also like people to think about a living will. Given that you now know that it's possible that the method imployed to bring about your death is dehydration (and it could take up to 2 weeks), and given the possibility of misdiagnosis, I'd advise you to think long and hard as to whether you're willing to die that way if you're one of the possible misdiagnosed patients.

Posted by: Ceci at March 20, 2005 3:52 PM

Jinnderella,

she had speech theraphy. She was doing well - improving......then it stopped.

Here's something I got from the Empire Journal:

Although her husband's doctors have testified that Terri is in a persistent vegetative state (PVS) with no hope of improvement, other doctors disagree. Dr. William Hammesfahr, a neurologist who specializes in the treatment of brain injuries, has spent approximately 12 hours examining Terri. At an October 24, 2003, press conference, he said that Terri is not in a PVS because:

* She responded to his commands for a standard strength test, even though she has lacked physical therapy for more than 10 years. She pressed her leg against his hand as he pressed down.
* He observed Terri responding to commands to move her limbs into uncomfortable positions--definitely not involuntary reflexes, as her husband's doctors have asserted.
* By definition, if there is a response to the outside world, the patient isn't in a PVS.
* Dr. Hammesfahr says that he believes Terri could improve and re-gain some (at least) of her faculties.

When her "husband" found out that her parents had taken a balloon and videotaped her following it with her eyes, he banned them from videotaping again.

Posted by: ElizabethV at March 20, 2005 3:55 PM

Given that 43% figure, maybe we should all sue the hospitals and politicians now, as there's a good change we will die by misdiagnosis at some stage. No reason we shouldn't live our lives now at their expense if they are going to kill us later, right? Hit them in the pocket and the power base - that is the only thing these 'people' understand.

Posted by: demonsurfer at March 20, 2005 4:01 PM

Dr. Anna, i replied to your comment on that thread. ;)
But here is a bioethics question-- let's say the fMRI and PET scans are allowed, but show further degeneration and no probable cortical functioning. Is it then ok to take out the tube?

Posted by: jinnderella at March 20, 2005 4:14 PM

And U Miami posted the CAT scan. have a peep.

Elizabeth V
that looks like a fair evaluation, BUT--again, if terri has voluntary responses, why haven't they taught her a gestural protocol?

normal brain
http://www.stjohn.org/healthinfolib/images/si55551310.jpg

it really looks to me as if terri has lost over 90% of her neocortical tissue (the dark area in the middle of her scan is fluid), leaving her with just a rind or shell.

Dr. Anna, a professional opinion?

Posted by: jinnderella at March 20, 2005 5:06 PM

I am not against Terri dying. Its just that I think that her HUSBAND should say wether or not she should go. Once she got married her parents gave up legal right to her. Its not theirs, congress, the president or anyones choice but her husbands. If she did not have a husband then her children would have a say and and if she did not have children or a husband then it would be her parents choice. But people she has a husband, let him decide and keep your nose out of his business. Let god take her. Just let her GO, and leave her alone please. You people are making to big of a deal out of this.

Posted by: Serena at March 20, 2005 5:23 PM

Serena,

You should read up on the facts before you state your case. Her "husband" has been engaged to another woman for over 10 years and has fathered 2 kids with her. He also get tons of money if she dies. Plus, she's not dying, she's merely being fed through a tube. She's just disabled.

Plus, would you like to be dehydrated against your will and die a slow painful death in 8 days to 3 weeks?

Posted by: Sirena at March 20, 2005 5:32 PM

Dear jinnderella: Thanks for the response to yesterday's thread, I'll take a look at it. Good question. The diagnosis of death is much easier than the diagnosis brain death. The most recent guidelines from determining brain death came from the American Academy of Neurology in 1995 and they are combined with the Harvard Medical School Definition of Brain Death set forth in 1968: They are: no deliberate movements, no breathing, no brainstem or spinal reflexes (to pain), flat EEG, pupils fixed midposition and non-responsive to light, no blink response. The
one fact we can all agree on is that she is
fact that she is still breathing on her own brings her outside of the true definition of brain death. Since these guidelines are just that, guidelines and not laws, one can argue that a patient can still have complete destruction of the neocortex with the midbrain (respiratory center) intact, so that's where further tests would be needed. CT, PET, MRI and cerebral contrast angiography would determine to what extend the neocortex is damaged. If it is then demonstrated WITHOUT QUESTION that the entire neocortex is destroyed... I personally am still not comfortable taking out a hydration and feeding tube on a breathing patient because that patient does not meet the agreed upon guidelines for "Brain Death" and because of my personal philosophy that life does not equal brain activity. HOWEVER, it would certainly be reasonable that another physician would feel it was o.k. and I wouldn't be compelled to object strongly, except to advise them they were going against the recommended guidelines. But if that physician did not do the appropriate definitive tests, I feel I have a moral obligation to argue his or her actions.

Regarding your previous statement that you don't believe she pled to her attorney for her life, probably not, at least not in the way a non-brain damaged person would, but I don't feel the case hinges on whether she did or not. I also agree that expecting her to talk in sentences is unrealistic, but I strongly believe as do some
physicians who have seen her that she could be rehabilitated to give yes or no answers using a gestural movement and from what I understand from her medical history she was able to do so at a point three years after her injury. She was apparently also able to feed herself. (from a sworn affidavit by two of her care nurses; I have not heard anyone dispute this claim). Apparently when Michael Schiavo discontinued her therapy, she soon after lost these abilities.
Unfortunetely no one sought to document her end of life wishes at that time. Since brain damage is not progressive, I believe that if she resumed rehabilitation/therapy she could regain these abilites. Her parents are not trained health professionals and are emotionally attached; combined with the fact that their access to Terri has been quite limited by circumstances outside of their control, makes it unresonable to expect they could be effective in rehabilitating Terri themselves.

Posted by: Anna Nordin at March 20, 2005 5:49 PM

I tip my hat to congress and all those people who have gotten involved in the fight to save Terri's life! If one of my family members were in the same situation as Terri, you better believe that I, as an American, would want anyone and everyone possible, getting involved to save the life of my loved one from the murderous democratic congressmen, and the murderous judge Greer. What goes around comes around, and one day, these murderers will get theirs from a higher power, and God sees all and knows all, and let me tell you, they are risking the salvation of their souls in hell for all eternity!! Remember, Jesus said:"who ever does this onto the least of my brethren does it onto me!" When they torture Terri by starvation, just remember they will be doing it onto JESUS!!

As a health care worker, I have seen too many patients recover from the most gravest of illnesses, and they have lived many more years, where mere mortal doctors, who are not God, have said there was no hope!My mother is one of those patients. "There will come a time, that no matter what a family member may do to preserve the life of a loved one, God will take them home anyway,so why hasten God's plans for Terri by starving her to death!?" Remember Mary Ann Quinlan? She lived many years just on tube feedings, and God finally took her...tube feedings and all. If Terri's parents want to give Terri that sort of unconditional love that parents should give their children, or a husband and wife are suppose to give each other until death does them part, but in the case of Terri's adulterous husband, he certainly did not take his marriage vows to Terri seriously, then who are the democratic congressmen,Mr. Schiavo or Felos to stand on the side of Terri's adulterous ex-husband in order to deny the BLOOD family the right to care for Terri and give her unconditional love?!

It would seem that this case has set women back 100 years or so, to where women were the property of the husband, but as far as I am concern, Terri's ex-husband is no husband at all and that is why I call him Ex!! How dare the democratic congressmen treat Terri as if she were the property of an ex-husband who is not in Terri's life at all, except to see to it that the democrats,judge Greer, and mr. Felos help him execute Terri in a most horrendous manner!

There seems to still be much speculations about Terri's cognitive and brain function. There are medical professionals who say Terri is in PVS, and there are those who say she is not. I understand there is newer technology that would answer this question. Let Terri be given a P.E.T scan to her brain to see what sort of chemcial functions it has. It is by far more accurate than an MRI. What ever new medical technology could test the cognition of Terri's brain, should be used. Why is Mr. Schiavo; the democrats and Judge Greer denying this to Terri, since the judge has never even set foot into Terri's room and nor has a single democratic congressman!?

As an American, who feels there should be justice for all; including the disabled, Terri should be allowed to have the latest tests needed to have the function of her brain checked out. Once that is established for the last time, then the Schindlers can decide what course of action they will take. Maybe these test may show that Terri will not improve or improve, and at that point the Schindlers may decide a course of care plan. What is Terri's ex-husband afraid of? The democrats should let Terri have those tests. I hope some day, that some of the democrat relatives, and the old judge will be treated the way they have treated Terri. Even an animal has more rights than dear Terri. How dare them give Terri less options than an animal!!! Where is the justice in that?

If the democratics congressmen and liberals have this sort of philosophy about treating disabled humans the way they are treating Terri Schindler, why not set up extermination houses with assembly lines to start exterminating all humans in Terri's condition, and believe me, there are thousands. Since the democrats/liberals endorse execution of disabled people, they should be the ones who are forced to pull the plug! The move to save Terri's life is NOT political as the democrats/liberals say, but it is a move of COMPASSION, or do they even know the word anymore!!!!!?????

MAY GOD HAVE MERCY THE SOULS OF LIBERALS AND THE DEMOCRATS, AND THE REST OF THOSE INHUMAN PEOPLE, WHO ARE INVOLVED IN THE EXECUTION OF TERRI SCHINDLER!! HER BLOOD IS THEIR HANDS!!!!!!!

If Terri's parents want to give Terri that sort of unconditional love that parents should give their children, or a husband and wife are suppose to give each other until death does them part, but in the case of Terri's adulterous husband, he certainly did not take his marriage vows to Terri seriously, then who are the democratic congressmen,Mr. Schiavo or Felos to stand on the side of Terri's adulterous ex-husband in order to deny the BLOOD family the right to care for Terri and give her unconditional love?!

It would seem that this case has set women back 100 years or so, to where women were the property of the husband, but as far as I am concern, Terri's ex-husband is no husband at all and that is why I call him Ex!! How dare the democratic congressmen treat Terri as if she were the property of an ex-husband who is not in Terri's life at all, except to see to it that the democrats,judge Greer, and mr. Felos help him execute Terri in a most horrendous manner!

There seems to still be much speculations about Terri's cognitive and brain function. There are medical professionals who say Terri is in PVS, and there are those who say she is not. I understand there is newer technology that would answer this question. Let Terri be given a P.E.T scan to her brain to see what sort of chemcial functions it has. It is by far more accurate than an MRI. What ever new medical technology could test the cognition of Terri's brain, should be used. Why is Mr. Schiavo; the democrats and Judge Greer denying this to Terri, since the judge has never even set foot into Terri's room and nor has a single democratic congressman!?

As an American, who feels there should be justice for all; including the disabled, Terri should be allowed to have the latest tests needed to have the function of her brain checked out. Once that is established for the last time, then the Schindlers can decide what course of action they will take. Maybe these test may show that Terri will not improve or improve, and at that point the Schindlers may decide a course of care plan. What is Terri's ex-husband afraid of? The democrats should let Terri have those tests. I hope some day, that some of the democrat relatives, and the old judge will be treated the way they have treated Terri. Even an animal has more rights than dear Terri. How dare them give Terri less options than an animal!!! Where is the justice in that?

If the democratics congressmen and liberals have this sort of philosophy about treating disabled humans the way they are treating Terri Schindler, why not set up extermination houses with assembly lines to start exterminating all humans in Terri's condition, and believe me, there are thousands. Since the democrats/liberals endorse execution of disabled people, they should be the ones who are forced to pull the plug! The move to save Terri's life is NOT political as the democrats/liberals say, but it is a move of COMPASSION, or do they even know the word anymore!!!!!?????

MAY GOD HAVE MERCY THE SOULS OF LIBERALS AND THE DEMOCRATS, AND THE REST OF THOSE INHUMAN PEOPLE, WHO ARE INVOLVED IN THE EXECUTION OF TERRI SCHINDLER!! HER BLOOD IS THEIR HANDS!!!!!!!


SINCERELY,

Terri's parents were asked to leave the room when the tube was taken out. Now Terri has an infection. Is anyone else suspicious that something may have happened on purpose when the tube was removed to ensure that Terri would get an infection that would kill her quickly so that the congress wouldn't have a chance to reinsert the tube?? Who do we contact to investigate if she does die? Intervention needs to be done so she is not immediately cremated!

C'mon congress, get the job done!!

Why was the feeding tube removed in the first place??? I talked to a friend that is a nurse and she said there was no reason why they couldn't have capped it and left it in for weeks! Why risk the increased chance of infection by removing it?

Also, I had a reader of my blog ask an interesting question...

Today, the parents of Terry Schiavo were denied access by the police to see their daughter. This was at the order of Michael Schiavo. Michael Schiavo has NO authority to tell Terri's family that they can't see her. This is despicable behavior. Michael Schiavo has been living with another woman for the last seven years and is fathering two children with this woman. This guy is the evil. This guy wants her dead and out of the way. As was stated by the family of Lacy Peterson towards Scott Peterson, "divorce is always an option." Michael Schiavo is Scott Peterson. He doesn't give a damn about Terri. Michael Schiavo needs to burn in hell for the pain and suffering he has caused Terri and her family.

Pinellas Circuit Judge George Greer refused a request from “U.S. House” attorneys to delay the removal request from U.S. House attorneys to delay the removal. He said, I have had no cogent reason why the (congressional) committee should intervene.” It’s the Federal Government! They have every right!

Congress issued a subpoena to have Terri come up to Washington so that they can see for themselves her condition, and this judge refused it. A subpoena by congress is the same as one issued by the courts. You don’t show up, you go to jail. This judge did just that. He refused a subpoena. Now, he needs to be held in contempt of congress.

By doing this, Pinellas Circuit Judge George Greer is conspiring to commit murder. This Judge by allowing the murder of Terri Schiavo to take place is in contempt of Congress and needs to be held accountable. She is NOT on life support! She is on IV. IV is a feeding tube. She is aware of her surroundings and that makes her alive, which would make this murder. This judge who has made all of these decisions has never even seen Terri Schaivo. This is irresponsible and inhumane on the part of the judge.

Something needs to be done here! I hope the family of Terri Shiavo files a wrongful death lawsuit against ALL parties involved. This is an activist judge with is own agenda.

This is whole thing is all about money. About 7 years ago, Terri Schiavo was undergoing therapy and walking. Michael Schiavo wins a malpractice settlement, gets the money from the settlement, and the therapy stops. Let the battle begin. Michael Shiavo is another Scott Peterson. He is sleeping with another woman and murdering his wife, with the help Pinellas Circuit Judge George Greer. That would make it murder and conspiracy to commit murder. Enough is enough!
