OK, the more clear information we have, the more it becomes possible to have a clearer idea of what may happen in the future and how to handle it. The salt depletion episode still sounds a bit odd to me. And I wonder whether the frontal lobe atrophy was the cause of the seizures, rather than being caused by them, as this sounds more likely to me.
The Seroquel / Epilim combination could help, in any case, as perhaps could Risperdal, in controlling her psychotic thinking and odd behaviours, including aggression. She does indeed sound highly vulnerable to exploitation, or simply to wasting her resources for psychotic and not realistic reasons, and it makes sense for you and your brother to be appointed as her guardian, and so on. PResumably if she is to return and live in Zimbabwe, this would need to be dont in a Zim court and according to the local laws there. A letter from the specialists here recommending that you be appointed with power of attorney, would be useful. And the letter to the specialist in Zimbabwe is of course very important, too. I understand why its considered risky for her to return to work --- but wil she accept that ? COuld her role be transformed into that of a consultant, so she doesn't feel altogetehr excluded, yet her advice need not be taken when it is illogical.
I do hope everything works out for all of you
