Straight Up with Sherri

President Bush Signs the Bill!

Bush has signed the bill.

Terri will be taken to a local hospital for a 90 minute procedure to re-insert her feeding tube. This must be done under anaesthesia, and in her fragile state they must be very careful. The Schindler family attorney stated that after Terri was taken from Woodland Hospice, he would be calling the shots.

We're not sure what he meant, but it sounds like the tide has definitely turned.

  • It's amazing to watch this real-life drama unfolding in front of us. And especially because we have our own representative, Sherri, taking part in what's going on!

    Sherri, your actions are the definition of altruism.

  • Sherri has done an exceptional job of providing live updates, human interest stories, photographs, and clarification of an otherwise confusing set of events. She makes us laugh, she makes us cry.
    We are so proud of you Sherri.

  • Yee haw Sherri! Great job keeping us all informed. I knew Congress & GWB would come through; and all the prayers. Bless you for all you have done! Hang in there girl.

  • Sherri...two words, Thank You.

    Can you or anyone tell me why none of the discussion in court or Conmgress seems to have addressed the conflict of interests of Michael Schaivo? It is not whether he is good or bad or in between, it is simply that having a de facto 2nd wife and 2 children by her impeaches his credibility regarding Terri's wishes, expressed or otherwise. You could not even be seated on a jury with such a conflicting relationship regarding either the defendant or plantiff. I just do not understand.

  • prior posted question

    1.)if anyone can answer my question but prefers not to do so on the blog, my email is

    2.) Sherri....if have an opportunity to meet Col James Gritz, please tell him thank you. If you can take him to dinner, do so on me....advise me the cost of the dinner, for you and him, and I will pay for it via PayPal immediately. Just tell him it is a"Thank you" for "Showing Up." He will know what that means.

  • Here is the bill.
    Its surprisingly short, straight-forward and readable. Aridog -- the bill seems to go right to the heart of the conflict of interest, authorizing any parent of Terri to sue any previous party to a case involving her. The key words are that the case shall be heard de novo. This means that the review will, for the very first time, be on the substance of the evidence and not on the proceedure.

  • Is there a way that we can get a current video of Terri? Some liberals are calling the video's shown outdated and believe that Terri is in a PVS state.

  • When you have confirmation that Terri's feeding tube has been reinserted and that she is getting food and water, please let me know (powersthatblog at gmail dot com) and I'll get it posted on BlogsForTerri. You might also want to email the other authors there in case I'm away from my computer. At this point, we know about the bill passing and what Attoreny Gibbs said, but what we don't know yet, is Is Terri now eating and drinking? And that's really the most important question. Thanks so much Sherri.

  • In the meantime, Terri is STILL starving to death.

    Thanks, Jeb, for doing NOTHING to SAVE TERRI.

    Thanks, W, for allowing the executive branch to be held hostage by the judiciary, ditto Congress.

    Weaklings ALL, and Terri is still being tortured by starvation.

    Please Lord, protect her and sustain her.

  • Per My way News, via Drudge, the judge had not yet ruled at 7:30 a.m. EST.

    Judge Greer's message box is full and Felos is not returning calls.

  • The judge assigned to this case has called a 3 pm court time for the case. My understanding is the guy was appointed by clinton.

  • I am in school right now and we just got done learning about CPR and then we got into the case about Terri Schiavo (T.S.) I think that it's sad that her husband wants her to die and be in a better place for all the suffereing to end and yet her parents won't let her go. How can someone watch their child suffer knowing that they can not wake up, she is brain damaged.

    This is some information that I got from a website stating what a Vegetative State was

    This term is commonly, but incorrectly, referred to as "brain-death." It can follow a coma. People in a persistent vegetative state cannot think, speak or respond to commands and are not aware of their surroundings. They may have noncognitive functions and breathing and circulation may remain relatively intact. They also might move spontaneously and even grimace, cry or laugh. Some people might regain some awareness after being in a persistent vegetative state but others might remain in the state for decades. Source: National Institutes of Health

    I think that Terri should just be removed from the feeding tube and just be in a better place. Also even if she did wake up, by a miracle, I don't think that it's going to happen how could she live like that. She was the one that put herself into the vegetative state anyways. She was the one that had the eatting disorder. I am not bashing her or anything it's just sad.....15 years of being like that, how could.......

  • OT..

    HIdden Nook, how did you get that URL embedded in your message like that, so that it just be clicked? What syntax did you use?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 2:00 PM  

  • According to this article in the SP Times, Greer approved videoing Terri.
    The granted motion requires Michael to provide a videographer to record Terri's parents' time with her after the feeding tube is discontinued. Is this being done? It could possibly help in the upcoming hearing.

  • The Rightwing Nuthouse posted the names of those who voted against Terri.

    G-d bless you, Sherri!

  • To embed a URL using HTML code is straightforward, but not necessarily easy. Mostly, it's cut-and-past, using the HTML tag for "a". I can't show you here, because this editor will not support commenting marks. Therefore, my examples will be interpreted as links. If you want to email me at, I will be happy to provide a description and example.
    Alternately, you can get really neat examples at: WC3 by Dave Raggett. See Adding links to other pages.

  • Dear sherri the most important thing is that you are eating and drinking i pray that the operation is done in a careful matter

  • "Bush has signed the bill.
