Please Help My Aunt Mae!

A guest update by Ken Mullinax.

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!

  • This is just WRONG in every sense; under 290-5-43-.13 – Individual Rights - of GA State Rules and Regulations for Hospices the NUMBER ONE, the very FIRST right of the patient is that “he/she may sever” the voluntary “relationship at any time. I’d bet money none of the 9 other rights have been adhered to either. This is just wrong.

  • RWNJ:

    I don't mean to hijack this thread, but I don't know how far back you reference posts.

    Tonight on Hannity & Colmes, there was a minor debate about what our country's "founding document" is. Hannity claimed that our F.D. was the Decl. of Independence, which of course make reference to "our Creator" and that which he endowed upon us. Says Hannity: "Most constitutional scholars that are worth their salt will tell you that's our founding document".

    The guest argued that our F.D. is the Constitution, which has as its only reference to religion is the prohibition against the establishment of a religion.

    In the view of your political party, who is right? Hannity or the guest or neither?

  • Well, the Declaration of Independence certainly came before the Constitution did.

  • FWIW -- going to law school doesn't necessarily impart either wisdom or respect for the law -- I have no problem with lay judges. This does seem, however, to be a case where there is not a shred of law to support the killing of Mae. No power of attorney, contrary to the living will, not comatose or vegetative. Not terminal other than the lack of food or water.

    May God have mercy upon us.

  • Our Founding Document was the Mayflower Compact, which was derived from the teachings of John Robinson, a pilgrim leader who remained behind to tend to his community. At that time, European nations GAVE their citizens rights, and they could (often arbitrarily) remove those rights at any time. The people feared their all powerful rulers. The Mayflower Compact reversed the order, investing the power in the people of the community to determine their own destiny.

    The Mayflower Compact states the signers gather under God to "covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid; And by Virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions and Offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the General good of the Colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience."

    The Declaration of Independence expounded on the concept that people "are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed".

    The Constition starts with the same basic concept: We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." Then the Constitution outlines the structure of the three branches of government, elections, taxes, war and immigration policies, etc.

    So no matter WHICH you choose as your FD, the thought remains the same. All People have Rights which Man has no authority to bestow or take away. People form governments to insure and protect those rights. We swear allegiance to that government ONLY SO LONG as it fulfills that role. If our representative government fails, or attempts to destroy our rights, then it is our Right to remove that government and replace it with one that WILL protect our rights.

    Thats the position we're in now. We have a Government that has decided to ignore our Right to Life and supplant it with a "Right to Die". Many of us, myself included, will limit my vote in upcoming elections to those candidates who have a RECORD of upholding our Right to Life.

  • have you guys tried the local media? I would think the Columbus papers would be interested, even if the laGrange paper isnt. What about local, or Atlanta TV and radio?

    Are the people in Troup County aware of what their probate judge is doing?

  • I just talked on the phone with Sonja Flanagan at the Georgia Department of Family and Children's services - she oversees all the hospices in Georgia. I explained the story to her and she had me send her the links to the stories that are out here and to Mr. Mullinax's posts. She's not sure what she can do, but she is going to look at the case. Her telephone number is (404)657-5445 and her email address is stflanag@dhr.state.ga.us. Would you believe she has heard NOTHING about this? So apparently the word isn't out in Georgia yet!

    My email if you have any questions is searayj@sbcglobal.net.

    Ken, don't give up, I'm calling everyone I can possible think of!!!

    Regarding the coach shooting, I got really angry at the hysterical anti-gun sensationalists. The Governor's Office of Homeland Security accused Robertson of firing an AK-47 and then fleeing the scene in a 2004 black Dodge pickup. Fox News reported the story 3 different ways, but always referring to the coach being shot with an ASSAULT RIFLE.
    It turns out that he is now reported to have been shot with a .45 calibre pistol.

    Thanks for asking, I am honored by your belief that I would know anything about this! But I do have an opinion. And, Florida Heat, your input of the Mayflower Compact is also significant. Our documents evolved over time. My personal belief is that the Declaration of Independence is the "Mission Statement" of our country, based mostly on the Magna Carta. The Constitution is our "Policies & Procedures manual".
    The left loves to discount the Declaration because it is immutable. However, since the Judiciary hijacked the ability to manipulate the Constitution in Marbury v Madison in 1803, activist judges have usurped the power to distort it in any way they see fit. That is why Alan Colmes prefers the Constitution - it can say anything his buddies in black want it to say.

    Please, please, pray for this man. May God give him strength.

  • World Net Daily has the Mae Magouirk story as their lead cover story today. Additionally, they have it featured as their Poll Question :
    What do you think of the case of a woman ordering her grandmother's feeding tube removed?.
    Participation requires an e-mail address; WND is a very honorable publication.

    Could someone closer to Georgia give those numbers a try and post your results here?

  • Since she had a heart attack, maybe she’s been moved from the hospice to a hospital where they will be trying to save her life and not end it. Hopefully this will give the family time to correct the injustice that has been done.

  • Sonja Flanagan also wanted to know, if Mae is not terminal or vegetative, what she was doing in the hospice - so at the very least, she could follow up on that. I just can't even comprehend all of this - I'm just flabbergasted that it's happening. Ken said he feels like he's living in a nightmare, and I can understand why. I had a situation similar to this with my husband when he had a TBI 9 years ago - several, in fact, so it's especially close to my heart. This CAN happen to you, to me, to anyone. And those that are apathetic, may find it happening to them next. We need more voices, LOUD voices.
