Terri's Nurse Speaks Out Against Michael Schiavo

Larry, my husband asked me this afternoon if I'd heard Terri Schiavo's nurse making the media rounds telling what she knew about Michael Schiavo's relationship with Terri when she was a nurse in the Palm Garden of Largo Convalescent Center in Largo, Florida from April of 1995 to July 1996 when Terri was a patient there. I said, "No, I hadn't but would google to see if I could find a transcript of one of her interviews."

Lar also mentioned that Rush Limbaugh had been playing a tape of an interview with Carla Sauer Iyer, the nurse who tended to Terri. I was unable to find a "media transcript", they're not posted yet on the sites, but I did find the actual "Affidavit" alledgedly composed by Carla Sauer Iyer. I did a quick "fact check" but didn't find anything about this affidavit being true or false.

I find this new development curious because last night on Greta Susteren's show, "On the Record", Greta interviewed an old friend of Terri Schiavo's who made statements about Terri wanting to divorce Michael shortly before her collapse. The friend also said that Michael was very "controlling" in their relationship--checking the odometer on their car to finally refusing her to drive the car at all to not allowing Terri to maintain relationships with childhood friends. If Terri had been allowed "due process" and appointed a lawyer to defend her these charges by the nurse may have come out earlier. Carla Sauer Iyer's affidavit is a huge "red flag" waving among the many surrounding Michael Schiavo in this case. Read it with the understanding that it was not and never will be "vetted" in court. Terri was denied this right. John Evander Couey was not.
