Many have written and requested a weekly update about Terri.
I apologize for not adding this update in my earlier email.
Bob and Mary just returned home from a nice afternoon visit with Terri.
Although Terri was still in bed, she was in good spirits.
Bob (Terri's Dad) shared with me how he had told Terri today's date, October 23rd. He then asked Terri if she had remembered the significance of today's date. He said, Terri began laughing and rolling her eyes, indicating by her laughter how she had remembered that today was her Dad's birthday. Bob then began to tease her asking her about his birthday present.
He said she continued to laugh even harder.
Bob and Mary were hanging a few Halloween decorations for Terri when they were told by the police officer who stands guard at Terri's door how the decorations would not be up for very long. The officer indicated they would all be moving from Park Place Assisted Living sometime next week. Terri was moved into Park Place Assisted Living several months ago when renovations began at Woodside Hospice.
The Schindlers' have not been given official word about the move as yet so they are uncertain where their daughter will be relocated.
Terri's birthday is on December 3rd. Let us pray that she will be at home with her family this year and not awaiting her feeding tube to be pulled on December 6th.
Please continue to share Terri's story with others and write letters to the President, Senators and local news stations in your area.
