One more--I had to share this.

Please keep the Schiavos in your thoughts and prayers *tears*.

I know she hears us.
Please give her a hug from me
And tell her I care.

All we can do is pray and hope that God intervenes in this situation; it is a horrible time for all involved! I pray we never end up like this! Powerful cry of the heart; God hears you, and so do many others!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :( >tears <

I think the husband is the only Schiavo in the case? But I know who you mean... the poor parents.

Yes and I agree this is a very sad case. It has just worn me down but now I leave it to a higher power and I am glad that it is not on my conscience.

Karla beautifully expressed compassion. I have a lving will and stipulations registered in hospitals no life support systems or feeding tubes, I would not want to live like that. However, I understand the parents and would never allow my child to be starved if there were any signs of possible recovery. Too bad Terri didn't have a will, because it is sad to spend your life in a state such as she has been in for all these years, it isn't fair to her. I don't believe we should intervene by putting people on life support systems in the first place. How do we know we aren't interfering with what God wants? My hopes and prayers are that His will be done for her and the family.

This is a tough call for me, Karla. I agree with Leysa and also I, too, ache for Terry and her parents. If nothing else good comes from this, it has got me knowing that I need to write a living will so that I will never be left as Terry has been for 15 years. If it was her choice not to be kept alive artifically, we have committed a grave injustice to her, but if she wished to be kept alive at all costs, then we now do her an injustice as well. I think about it, what if I were presented with this, a spouse who after perhaps even 5 years was still unable to be declared anything more than being in a vegetative state from which there is no hope of improvement, how would I feel. Would I think that I had a right to have a life of my own? That I should be able to have my children and do all the things that were my dreams? or should I say that I understood that when I took my vows that in sickness and in health until death us do part meant that I was not entitled to my dreams if my spouse's life turned out as Terry's has. This is a situation that I am glad I am not facing. I am not certain that there is any good decision to be made. God bless Terry and her family. I pray for a miracle, actually, that Terry should suddenly just ask for a drink of water, but sadly, I don't think that will happen. A most compassionate write, Karla.
Take care,

I live less than 2 miles from where Terri is living. My husband went to Woodside Hospice yesterday and stood outside in the rain with over 300 supporters, plus 2 blocks worth of news vans from across the country. He said it was unlikely I'd get a speeding ticket in Pinellas Park anytime soon because their entire police force was guarding the door. I can't believe it's finally come to this. Terri has been a part of this community's thoughts and prayers for many years now. Karla, your Senryu is beautiful, and I can't help but believe that Terri knows how much she is loved...her parents have been there for her every day for years. They jave literally sacrificed every cent of their retirement savings to give to attornies and court fees...trying to save her life. God bless such loving parents who would go to such lengths to take care of their child. Blessings and hugs, Michelle

Karla -- what a sad situation. I truly don't know where to stand on this painful situation. As a mother, it would destroy me to watch my child starve to death. Yet, if I were Terry, I think I would prefer to pass on to a better life. They really do need our prayers. Sweet, tender, write.
