Well at least she signed the letter... the son had said it would be much better in the long run if she would sign it - one less reason for her to have a tantrum.
OH has now collected it so we're all set then.
They may have to come to ours for one night and stay in the bathroom as we hear the cattery is snowed bound. We shall know more latter.
I know that this woman having a history of mental issues entitles her to some sympathy (which we have tried to show), unfortunately our history with her has been quite difficult to say the least and Mother Teresa herself would have lost it with her.
Not just over the cats issue but other things as well. Last week she called in an auction house to value Gary's collection of Gilbert and Sullivan memorabilia. We also had to cancell some double glazing she'd just signed up for as well as cancell a surprise parachute jumping weekend she'd booked for her and Gary over the internet for Gary's birthday in two months time. I will leave out the personal 'other issues' involving her lies and attempts to divide good friends as well and wreck marriages. There may also be a fraud investigation involving the deeds to the house.
I am used to dealing with depressed or excited people but I've NEVER known one that's such hard work.
She was on the phone again last night spouting all kinds of rubbish as well as pleading with OH saying these cats are better off dead. She is also saying they have aggravated her Psoriasis... which is a new claim of hers that we've never heard her mention before.
It's almost like she's using Gary's incapacity as a convenient time to 'get rid' of the cats and it feels like she's been waiting for this moment when Gary can't be consulted. OH got really firm saying that Gary had these cats before she and he met, so it's Gary choice about what happens to them. He put it to her that if she signed the cats were gone and one less thing for her to worry about.
The good news, BTW, is that Gary is showing positive signs of fighting. They are concerned about some movement issues but his blood pressure is now better than OH's.
We think he may even be up to recognising visitors soon but still some way off communicating. The kind of brain hemorrhage he had was the WORST one you can have and most patients don't make it to the hospital we are told... so we're hoping he's used up all his bad luck now.
