When my mom went into the nursing home- she made me her POA listing my sister second. The nursing home staff signed, witnessed it and notorized it- I took my copy to the court house and had it filed- then gave copy to the hospital and dr offices.
Few weeks later one of the nh staff inform me that my brother is going to have mother revoke it- nothing else is said about it- and there was not another poa made.
I was never given a copy of the revocation.
Last month my brother took mom to the house for several days at a time so that my sisters and I could not see her-
During that time that she was home she was taken to hospital for a cold which turned into pneumonia it was the next night when the hospital called me because I was listed as her poa-
They were calling to update the "family" on her situation.
Apparently she suffered a heart attack while in a regular room and it is unknown how long she was with out oxygen.
So at 72 mom is brain dead, diabetic and has stage 4 renal failure.
When asked what they should do if she were to have another one- my oldest sisters and I said DNR.
Next day my brother goes to the nursing home and they give him a "copy" of the revocation of poa. Once again- I still have not seem a copy.
Called the court house and he revocation was never filed.
Mom is on a feeding tube, she is a vegetable, does not respond to sound or anything.
I know this is hard for all of us- but I can't imagine myself laying there and being hooked up to machines until my kidneys or the bedsore that is on her bottom worsens.
Anyhow - with that being said .. Do I still have poa? Is it still active?
