It would seem that – for now – we’ve averted another Terri Schiavo-type murder.

Sherri at Straight Up With Sherri  reports that 81-year-old Mae Magourik, who had been hospitalized with a dissected aorta, then subsequently hospiced and denied food and water at the insistence of her grand-daughter (who, it would seem did not have medical power-of-attorney to have this done), has now been removed from said hospice and transferred to another hospital, fed and re-hydrated.

Yes, I’m keeping an eye on this one – not to mention giving Sherri a higher-than-normal place on the blogroll.

You see, Sherri’s a Georgia blogger who actually possesses a clue – unlike some other Georgia blogger we all know…

    Saw the story here via James Lileks (having trouble locating Lileks’ permalink). This is frightening – not anywhere near PVS, not terminal, and has a living will that EXPLICITLY states that feeding tubes shalt not be removed.

    Read the comments over at Sherri’s blog and there’s an anonymous chickenshit troll crapping all over the place.

    Being unsure on “the rules” of that blog, I refrained from taunting and ridiculing that ass-monkey into a quivering pile of goo.

    Damn, it was hard to resist……
