Terri Given Reprieve Until 5:00 PM Tomorrow

I just spoke on the phone to Terri's sister, Suzanne Vitadamo, and she informed me that Judge Greer has granted the Schindlers' request for an emergency stay on the removal of Terri's feeding tube.

Judge Greer's order is in effect until 5:00 PM tomorrow afternoon.

The Schindlers have another hearing in Judge Greer's court at 2:45 PM tomorrow, at which time it is expected that he will rule on the Schindlers' motion for a new stay, as other legal issues are still pending in the courts. Among those issues still pending is the Schindlers' petittion to remove Michael as guardian, based on his failure to fulfill the requirements for guardians as specified in Florida law.

That petition has been pending in Judge Greer's court, without a ruling, for three years.

Suzanne and the other Schindlers have visited Terri today, and she is doing well.
