SIL removed pictures of our kids from Dads photo album and walls and replaced them with only pictures of her kids! WTF!

When does it stop? Dad is in a nursing home and she visits and does this because she's mad at us for no good reason. She tries to control his money, his feelings, his healthcare, etc. My husband has equal power of attorney and she excludes him from what goes on. But this low?

  • Just change them back. That should really piss her off.

  • DH better nip that in the but himself and before dad passes away too. Don't let her get away with it or shove it all under a rug and then try to settle the score later on. Get all papers in order and hire a lawyer if you haven't to see it thru. And change the pictures back. I will never understand why some people feel the need to think they are entitled to the family treasures when it needs to be split among ALL the kids. It doesn't matter if you are older or younger or sick or visited more. It all goes half and half. Your DH has to speak up, sounds like she is use to her way and that's because no one puts her in her place. That lump under that rug is getting bigger by the day. Time to clean up the mess.

  • Have your dh hire a lawyer and see what his rights are. Also, have him tell the nursing home staff and doctors that he is to get notified of any changes and whatnot. Then also have your dh put his big boy pants on and be a man and deal with this shit. also, make a separate photo album of your family and bring it to the poor man instead of fighting over just one album and then tell the little bitch if she touches that one, her fingers are going to be unable to do anything else for the rest of her life.

  • I would get a lawyer like others have said but don't replace hers with yours just add more. you don't want to give her any reason to think you are on to her.
