She is bedridden and became very dehydrated. We took her into the hospital where they gave her hydration. She seemed better. But the hospital says that she is dying of old age, and that the not eating or drinking is a sign of that, and we should just let it happen. Her living will says "only food and water". She has a DNR. We want them to put in a food tube (through the nose) for food and water and let us take her back home, but the hospital refuses to do it. We have tried to get another doctor but are told that the current doctor must refer us to them, which she will not do because she doesn't want my mother to have the feeding tube. She is cared by my sister who is a retired nurse. This sounds too much like us "pulling the plug" because we are only interested in "food and water". We are both her POAs. She is 97. Soon they will make us check out of the hospital. She will die of dehydration. Do we have any other options?
