a quote from...

Thursday, May 11, 2017
...Samuel Clemens, aka Mark Twain, possibly not remembered with one-hundred percent accuracy. But it goes something like: "Always do right. It will gratify some people, and astonish the rest". It came to mind today, when I was thinking about the auntie. So here is the latest...

I am getting a bit stressed out as the date for probate inches closer. We are to go to court next Wednesday, with the hope that the judge will grant guardianship and conservator-ship. This will allow the nieces to make some decisions on behalf of the auntie who continues to decline. There are times when I have some serious reservations about the future of this endeavor. But then I remind myself: "You are doing the Right Thing".

It is a near certainty the auntie will balk, fail to see any reason for her to make changes. But we are in agreement/believe she cannot continue to live alone, and is not fully capable of making informed decisions about her welfare. She often calls friends and other relatives, asking for help, but refuses to consider making any changes. Displaying some pretty glaring signs of dementia.

So the date for court draws near. The attorney appointed by the court to represent the auntie has agreed that it would not be helpful for her to be present. We will see what happens next, and hope for the best. "Always do right..."
