21. I heard on the news that a guardian ad litum will be appointed..
I'm surprised this hasn't been done before. I don't know if it will help,but it may create a buffer between these family members. Michael Schiavo may well be acting from pure motives and he may be truthful in his reporting of Terri's wishes. I wonder if the parents and other family members will moderate their views if the husband is removed as guardian? I can understand why they may feel that he has a credibility problem. I do hope that everybody,however young,will put their wishes in writing. I have my concerns about this case,and envy those who are certain of the right,either way. I'm glad the decision doesn't rest with me.
