Please Help My Aunt Mae!
Nothing is settled in this case until my Aunt Mae is given nourishment and fluids! This is far from settled and far from over. The doctors did not meet Monday...that is Bull!
They finally spoke on Wednesday and again today AND STILL NOTHING IS SETTLED OR DECIDED BETWEEN THEM. Every day they vacillate, my Aunt Mae grows weaker and closer to death.
Sure, we attended an emergency guardianship petition hearing before Judge Boyd on Monday, April 4. However, the Judge would barely allow our attorney, Jack Kirby, to speak and would not even allow our attorney to cross examine Mae Magourik's attending Physician, Dr. Stout, so as to ask the doctor if he would agree that there are alternative treatments to a dissected aorta which are not surgery (my Mom has had the same condition of a dissected aorta as her sister Mae and we know that Mae CAN BE successfully treated without surgery) but Probate Judge Boyd WOULD NOT allow our attorney to ask that question. Even though Beth Gaddy's forces state that the dissected aorta is the major reason they put her in Hospice.
So although we have a sort-of compromise, I am not holding out any hope especially since two of the three probate court appointed cardiologists are from the small clannish town of LaGrange, Ga.
This Judge has been NO HELP and has acted hostile and indifferent to our actions to keep my Aunt Mae alive. And what if the two LaGrange Ga. doctors rule against my Aunt? Should we just lay back and allow her to be WITHHELD NOURISHMENT AND FLUIDS? Heck No!!!
So although this Probate Judge is a slick talker, he has definitely not been on the side of life in this matter...however that is just my opinion. Judge Boyd has NEVER ATTENDED LAW SCHOOL yet he is a Probate Judge who has the power of life and death in these matters. But Ga. Law allows a probate judge to be a non lawyer and that is just not right. That issue is my next cause!!! So remember when you talk to this Judge Boyd...he is a slick politician...he runs for election...he may seem nice and say the right things however the one right thing he could say is that he is going to enforce Mae Magouirk's Living Will stipulations and make sure she has substantial nourishment and fluids to keep her alive....
Remember: MAE IS NOT TERMINAL...COMATOSE OR IN A VEGETATIVE STATE SO WHY IS JUDGE BOYD ALLOWING HER TO STAY IN HOSPICE???
In closing, examine the contradictions in Judge Boyd's own court writing which bears his signature. In Boyd's petition for the appointment of a temporary emergency guardian for my Aunt Mae, he writes, in "Probate Court Estate Ruling 138-05" the following:
"That a clear and substantial risk of death and or serious physical injury can occur to the proposed ward "Mae Magouirk" UNLESS she stays in HOSPICE at West Georgia Health Systems."
A RISK OF DEATH WILL OCCUR TO HER UNLESS SHE STAYS IN HOSPICE? Is he whacky or what??? Hospice is a home for the dying...Hospice is death. Who does he think he is fooling?? Now do you see what we are going against with this man and now do you she why I will not sit on my hands while these doctors he has appointed finally get around to acting.
EVERY DAY THESE DOCTORS WAIT TO DECIDE, MY AUNT MAE INCHES CLOSER TO DEATH!!!
Act now....I so need everyone to stay on these folks. The light of your involvement and public SCRUTINY will embarrass these folks who embrace the culture of death and thus will allow us to give Mae the proper medical care she deserves.
ACT NOW...KEEP THE PRESSURE ON THEM...DON'T FALL FOR THEIR PROPAGANDA. They want you to feel this is over....THE HELL IT IS!
Nephew of Mae Magouirk
