This is a continuation of “Turning Point” TURNING POINT
My mother had been so loyal to the HOUSTON CLAN she turned her back on me. It’s hard to say that because, although that is technically true I have knowledge, insight, understanding and forgiveness now.
I started to realize, after my arrival in my mothers life, it was like she had been waiting for me. As I had been waiting for her. I am happy with one thing and that is I had healed enough to initiate seeing her.
She started to ask me to please be her Power of Attorney several months after I first saw her. This was not initiated by me, in fact I was satisfied that Dr. James (he was her P/A) was the right person to do that. I had no reason to believe this wan’t a good idea.
My realization of the control the HOUSTON’S had on her evolved right from the beginning (speak about later) but I didn’t have all the pieces and made the conscious decision to “let it go”. But as the pieces seems to present themselves over and over again, my mind changed.
I remember the day my ears really pricked up and my instincts started to really go “man, there is something wrong going on here”. It was the day Dr. Bob had come back from a stay in the hospital, Dr. James brought him back to Dr. Bob and Angela’s (my mothers) condo. I was there, I had just arrived in Victoria. My mother had asked if I could help with Dr. Bob as he recovered.
While Dr. Bob, my mother Angela and Dr. James settled Dr. Bob in I went into my bedroom and shut the door. Shortly afterwards Dr. James opened the door and walked in. Now I am an abuse survivor but this kind of thing doesn’t go down well with me. Polite people knock. If they don’t something is up.
Dr. James asked me to go into the living room he wanted to instruct me in the giving of medication to Dr. Bob. I said nothing at that time because I didn’t want to upset Dr. Bob and my mother.
Dr. James gave me the instructions and when he left I told my mother that I would NOT give Dr. Bob his medication. When I went home I emailed Dr. James telling him to never ever do that to me again. You see I had told him before I would never disseminated drugs to his father.
It was during this back and forth interaction that Dr. James accused me of stealing PIN #’s from Dr. Bob and my mother’s bank account.
The only “proof”? that he had was? in this family meeting apparently I said in front of Dr. James and his wife Louise, Tony Houston and Lorene, Shelaigh and Clark (cop) that I had stolen PIN #’s. Does this make sense to you. Not me. It’s so nonsensical I don’t want to say anything beyond that.
This was the moment I KNEW something big was coming over me and down on me.
I told my mother all of this but old habits dye hard. She was still loyal to the HOUSTON CLAN.
The HOUSTON CLAN bad mouthed me to my mother over and over and over again until my mother’s lawyer had to threaten them with an injunction to stop harassing Mrs. Angela Houston. This was the beginning of the unravelling of my mother.My mother was starting slowly to realize all that had happened to her and her daughter. Something I had no intention of bringing up, but the HOUSTON CLAN forced her hand. They forced this old lady to look at things no old lady should have to examine so late in life.
My mother was still loyal them. Never ever once did she talk of writing the HOUSTON CLAN out of her will. It wasn’t even a subject we discussed beyond asking me to be her P/A. She asked me several times but each time she went to Dr. James and he told her not to do that. So she listened to him and so did I. That was the end of that as far as I was concerned. My goal was to be with my mother.
Finally my mother called me really early one morning and asked me again, “will you be my P/A” (no mention at that time about Executrix of her will). Once again I said “sure Mum”. Then without anyone’s knowledge my mother went to a lawyer near by and had a new P/A and a new Executrix signed on – me. I only found out about the Executrix at the time of signing. Please note, the content of the will stayed the same as it was before.
Her will and Dr. Bob’s were mirror wills you see. The HOUSTON CLAN were going to get half of the Angela Dr. Bob estate after both died. But it became clear to me that wasn’t enough for them, they thought they should get more.
I had always believed my mother would want to say in Victoria near the HOUSTON’S thinking that she loved them so much and was so loyal to them. Therefore, nothing was ever said about changing my mothers will until after Dr. Bob died and that day at the Registry office where she had learnt what the HOUSTON CLAN had done to her. Then she changed her will on the advise of the lawyer she had at the time.
