Are you asking about the wording on the deed or what you would sign in place of her on her signature line?
Many trust contain a provision that upon a doctor's certification that trustee is incapacitated then the successor trustee takes over or all duties go to co-trustee, I am unsure if I understand the question. The spot where you sign should just indicate a spot for the trustee to sign. If both trustees must sign then you would need to look to language in the trust as to how to handled when one is incapacitated. You will likely need to record the trust or a memorandum of trust along with the deed. The title company will probably require this. They may also require that any doctor's signature is signed on a document where he acknowledges in front of a notary so they can record that as well.
No phone call is required, but if that would be easier I am happy to offer one for a modest additional price.
Please ignore my first response it should have said this I apologize.
