"My hubby is my guardian spirit. He's stuck by me by everything. Almost men would have left alone a long time ago, and who could blame them — but Myron is a living saint," Smith told.
Terry has never been a delicate female child. At the age of 7, she weighed almost 70 kilogram. The woman explains that her family was poor which did not allow for her parent to bargain healthy foods. At the age of twenty, Terry weighed about 120 kilogram.
Terri wedded husband Myron, whom she looks up to as her guardian spirit, in 1986. And then at the age of 32 she built up severe arthritis in her knees and was incapable to walking more than a couple of steps at one time.
Smith was lastly given an electric wheelchair to get around in. The lack of physical exercise, not modifying her eating caused her weight balloon to the point wherever she could barely stand.
Then about three yrs agone a change in her medicine caused her to gain 91 pounds in 30 days. Those another pounds forced her to the bed ridden state she has been in e'er since.
She faces a race against the clock to lose weight in a bidding to qualify for gastric surgery. Smith, who's been bed-bound for 3 yrs, told, "People must think, 'How could you let yourself get like that?'
"It is awful how it creeps up on you. Once you can't physical exercise it does not matter how healthily you eat, the weight just sticks. You are not burning off a single calorie."
Dr Dariush Saghafi said, "Caring for someone of Terri's sized is very hard. It is very difficult to move and transportation her.
"Hospitals don't have equipment to adjudge someone of her girth.We thought that it might be possible for Terri to have an MRI at the Cleveland Zoo in the machine used for the elephants and rhinos but the zoo doesn't accept a permission for humans."
Terry's family, consisting of her loving hubby and 2 daughters, the first of which is 30 yrs old, hope that the trouble with the equipment will be solved earlier it's too late.
