The court fight over a brain-damaged woman in Florida isn't over just yet.

The parents of Terri Schiavo have succeeded in getting a judge to issue an emergency stay, blocking the removal of her feeding tube until late Wednesday afternoon.

There will be a hearing on the case earlier in the day Wednesday.

Before the emergency stay was issued today, a Florida appeals court cleared the way for Schiavo's husband, Michael, to have the tube removed.

The tube has kept her alive for 15 years. Her husband says she would not want to be kept alive this way, but her parents disagree and still hold out hope for some sort of recovery. Doctors say there's no hope of that, and that she's in a persistent vegetative state.
