Mae Magourik Airlifted for Food

As I mentioned a few days ago, Mae Magouirk, an 81 year old grandmother, was being denied food and water, despite a living will that said she wanted to be fed under her current condition.

After 10 days without food and water, Mae Magouirk was airlifted from Hospice-LaGrange in LaGrange, Georgia, to the University of Alabama-Birmingham Medical Center for her recovery. Her nephew, Ken Mullinax, credits bloggers following the Terri Schiavo story for the media pressure to save his grandmother:

Because of your articles and all of the friends of Terri, my Aunt Mae Magouirk is now in the University of Alabama-Birmingham Medical Center and is receiving food, fluids, cardiac care and neurological help. We are overjoyed.

Praise be the name of the Lord, praise be all of the friends of Terri Schindler [Schiavo]. We could never have mobilized public sentiment and pressure on these people in LaGrange, Ga. – at Hospice, the LaGrange, Ga., doctors or the probate judge – unless the friends of Terri and the wonderful media of had become involved. Thank you all.
