More on the Terri Schiavo saga... USA Today has done a review of the many records from this case and they theorize that the level of acrimony between Michael Schiavo and the Schindlers may be because he did not share a $300,000 award he received for "loss of consortium". The money for the loss of his wife's companionship was in addition to the $700,000 settlement specifically allocated for Terri's medical care.

The article also cites court records which state that her parents did at one point acknowledge that Terri is in a persistent vegetative state. "Despite the row over money, Schiavo and the Schindlers agreed on one major point in the 2000 testimony: the extent of Terri's brain damage, according to additional court documents cited by The Miami Herald. In the documents, Pamela Campbell, then the Schindlers' lawyer, told the court that “we do not doubt that she's in a persistent vegetative state.” Campbell could not be reached to confirm the statement.

I fervently hope that her husband and her parents are not fighting this epic and public battle because they are angry with each other over money. I pray that Terri's spirit is untouched by the madness surrounding who controls her body.
