Beth Gaddy: Still working at being the next Michael Schiavo

In an email Ken Mullinax explains Beth's latest outrage:

MY Aunt Mae is now being nourished and hydrated at UAB medical Center.

HOWEVER, BETH GADDY HAS ISSUED AN ORDER TO THE MEDICAL STAFF AT THE CCU-UNIT of UAB WHICH PREVENTS MAE'S BROTHER (A. B. McLeod) SISTER (Lonnie Ruth Mullinax) and nephews/any of the Alabama relatives FROM VISITING MAE MAGOUIRK IN HER ROOM at the hospital. When we appeared today to visit Mae, we were turned away by hospital staff!

It is ironic that my Mom is on the 7th floor and Mae is located on the 8th floor of UAB but she is prevented from seeing her sister who is suffering from the same heart malady. SO IT GOES.

It is heartbreaking..but we are still overjoyed she is receiving substantial nourishment, fluids and a proactive medical treatment....praise Christ!!

Kenneth Mullinax

Mae is in Alabama now, but the court order giving Beth Gaddy authority was issued in Georgia. Now that Mae is in Alabama, there's a possibility that her medical decisions can be made by family members not wanting to euthanize her.

I called Ken Mullinax, willing to be a brief as possible considering how busy he obviously would be about now, and he spoke with me for well over ten minutes. He assured me that they have hired some prominent Alabama attorneys and will be trying to resolve the problem outside the courts first, but if they are unable to, then they'll use the courts.

He also told me that his mother -- who is currently in the same hospital with her sister Mae, and was just moved from the ICU to a private room -- tried to visit her sister but was kept out by hospital staff. Needless to say it upset her, and in her condition that's not good.

We all definitely need to keep this family in our prayers. Pray for Mae's quick recovery, as well as Ruth Mullinax's recovery as well. Pray for wisdom for Ken and the family and the lawyers they've hired, that they can quickly get this thing settled.
