Mailed jury duty excuse, still got failure to appear notice. ?

My mother recently got a jury summons and with the worst possible time admission to the hospital. We've sent the jury summons back with the written excuse and proof. After a couple months we thought it was said and done. Now we just got a notice of failure to appear. What the hell is this about? My mother just got surgery of course she's not going to appear!

    The letter may have gotten lost in the shuffle. Contact the courthouse right away, explain the situation and provide a doctor's letter.

    Just because you sent an excuse in, DOES NOT mean that they accepted your excuse. Did you ever contact the Clerk of Courts to see if you had been excused from duty.
