Judge Greer declined to issue a ruling today and stated that he would do so
within the next few days. He also suggested that the 1996 court order,
which was issued by another judge, should be revisited in court so that the
term 'significant change' could be determined.
condition is showing serious neglect. Accoding to Cheryl Ford,
"On two occasions in the past few weeks, both Bob and Mary Schindler have
told me that they asked why Terri's hair was oily and not washed. They
have questioned why she was not taken out of bed, or dressed. They
have questioned why she had a sudden unexplained bout with vomiting.
They questioned what happened to one of her teeth; why was it missing.
They now want to know why Terri has a decubitus ulcer on her buttock?
An ulcer, which would most likely not be present if proper nursing care was
being given to Terri. However, they are not given answers by the nursing
staff or by anyone. I cannot help but to find the situation here in
Clearwater the most appalling and blatant disregard for human life in my

Wednesday, I attended a meeting in St. Petersburg at the Center for Independent
Living where Assistant Attorney General Shanika Graves, was in attendance.
I personally sat across from Shanika and asked her to please help Terri.

over anything that had to do with Terri Schiavo." [Perhaps you would

From Terri's brother, Bobby Schindler, Jr.:
"I feel as if Judge Greer is blatantly ignoring a very clear and concise
court order issued by Judge Pennick in 1996. What about 'change in medical
condition' requires interpretation? With every hearing, it gets more
obvious to me that this judge is working to insulate Michael Schiavo and,
in the process, is causing harm to my sister and torturing my parents. God
have mercy on other parents of disabled people in this jurisdiction."
