Nine days after Terri Schiavo's feeding tube was removed, her husband and parents release conflicting statements on her health. After the Schindlers' attorney said Schiavo's condition was deteriorating, the lawyer for Michael Schiavo said Terri Schiavo was not near death.

Attempts by Schiavo's parents to appeal the tube's removal have not been successful. Doctors have predicted that Terri Schiavo will die within two weeks of the removal of the feeding tube. Sheilah Kast speaks with NPR's Ari Shapiro.
