My mother is in another state under the conservatorship of a professional fiduciary who has alienated her sisters and myself. I recently was able to find out that she had a fall and can no longer walk and friends donated funds for me to fly across the ocean and see her after approximately 9 months. My mother growled and bit at my face quite often. Recently her conservator removed her dog she had as a constant companion for 13 years. Could her behavior be because she misses her dog? Does anyone else have experience of odd behavior like this? Thank you.
