She only has a few days left, and for years she has groomed everyone, including her DPOA, to let her die at home. Now the DPOA (non-family member) has chosen to keep her in a hospital against her expressed (and very coherent) desire to die at home with family. This is very heartbreaking. Her DPOA isn't even in state anymore, yet is forcing the family to watch her waste away in a hospital bed without the dignity she insisted on. None of us want her to die. But her DPOA is making it worse for her and everyone in the family.
