Gadoua Stlrf wi ier When Rabbi Charles Sherman looks at his 23-year-old son, Eyal. he's convinced it's wrong to remove Terri Schiavo's feed- ing tube. "There is a solution." he said. "Tne solution is to allow her to live." Today, after years of family arguments that ended up in Flor- ida's courts and state Legisla- ture, Schia1. o's feeding tube was scheduled to be removed. But lawmakers and lawyers in Flori- da and in Washington were working late Thursday to try to stop the removal of the tube. Without nutrition, the 41-year-old Florida woman se- verely brain damaged since 1990 is likely to die in a week or rw o. In 1986. doctors told Charles and Leah Sherman their son's prognosis was bleak. The 4-year-old boy, the third of five children, suffered a stroke during brain surgery to remove a tumor. "They said he was going to live weeks." Sherman recalled. "He's outlived five of his doc- tors. We would not give up. and he would not give up." Eyal Sherman, a quadriplegic, spent about a year in a coma and has used a feeding tube for 19 years. In 1994. he made his bar mitz- vah at the Conservative syna- gogue where his father has been spiritual leader since 1976. He graduated from Syracuse's Not- tingham High School in 1999. He is a Syracuse University stu- dent, loves sports, and is an art- DEVELOPMENTS Deadline: By court order. Terri Schiavo's feeding tube was to be removed at 1 p.m. today. The Florida House passed a bill to block the withholding of food and water from patients in a persistent vegetative state who did not leave specific instruc- tions regarding their care. The Florida Senate defeated a some- what different measure. The U.S. House and Senate passed competing bills but a compromise was unlikely. State courts and the U S. Supreme Court rejected attempts to postpone removing the tube. Story, Page A-4 McAuliffe recalls victories, defeats, history unfolding By John Marian!
