Blogburst for Terri: A 24 Hour Reprieve!


The husband of Terri Schindler Schiavo will have to wait at least another 24 hours before his wife's feeding tube is removed. A Florida circuit court ruled Monday afternoon that Michael Schiavo could take no action until after a previously scheduled hearing on Wednesday.

Terri's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, filed an emergency motion seeking the temporary protection for their daughter after losing an earlier court battle Monday morning. In that action, the Florida Second District Court of Appeals indicated that it would issue a mandate on schedule Tuesday that would clear the way for the lower court to set the date on which Terri's feeding tube could be removed.

I have heard another report that this story might be in error and although there is a hearing on Wednesday, Schiavo may go ahead with his plans to stop the feedings.

I'm going to trust God and praise Him for this reprieve until I heard differently.

Update - It appears that Michael Schiavo is going to ignore the court order.

Judge Greer never cited Michael for contempt for failing to show up for scheduled appearances. Maybe he will now.
