Had the same issue with my Grandfather.  My aunt had the power of attorney and refused to let them pull the plug.  After three days the DR. pulled the plug regardless of her wisheess as they had his directive on file.

Prayers are with you!

Our prayers are with you from this side of the country, Mike. 
We have been through similar with Alice's son, when he was shot in the head, about 24 years ago as a murder.  She decided to pull the plug and he was in the military at the time.  Thoughts and prayers across the land.
