Terri's situation

From what I've heard and read it seems that no one is clear on whether the tube providing Terri Schiavo with nutrition and hydration has been removed. Yahoo has this story which says that Judge Greer has ordered the removal of the feeding tube after another temporarily blocked the removal of the tube.

Pinellas Circuit Court Chief Judge David Demers ordered that the feeding tube remain in place past a 1 p.m. deadline while fellow Judge George Greer, who is presiding over the Schiavo case, deals with conflicting legal issues.

The delay came after U.S. Senate and House committees in the Republican-controlled Congress issued subpoenas for Schiavo, her husband, Michael Schiavo, and her caregivers to appear at hearings on March 25 and March 28 which would in effect keep her alive for the time being.

K-Lo at the Corner is reporting that Jim Sensenbrenner is the reason that the House hasn't passed the Senate's version of a bill to help Terri.

UPDATE: Terri's feeding tube is out.

Jodie Centonze, according to Bay News 9, informed the media that Terri's tube has been removed. Centonze is Michael Schiavo's fiancé. The Schindler family was forced to leave when this took place.

According to Michael's fiancé, he is very distraught.

Oh, come on. The only thing Michael is distraught about is whether the attempts to save Terri will be successful or not. Her feeding tube has been removed twice before and then reinserted. My guess is that Michael is hoping that the third time's a charm.
