I had POA for my mother. About a month ago my older sister

I had POA for my mother. About a month ago my older sister told my mom lies about me and they went and changed all the POA to my older sister. My mother is ill and does forget stuff and is easily swayed. Both are not talking to me, my mom was diagnozed terminally ill a couple days ago. Also my sister talked her into filing a Restraining order on me and my husband. Haven't went to court yet, but so unfounded Is there anything I can do - I feel really betrayed by my sister and my mother. My whole family is on my side - nephews, nieces, sisters in laws, etc. Thanks

The letter also list the FBI agent's name and number for any questions regarding the notice but when I called I was told they could not tell me anything about the case and I would have to wait for him to return my call. Should I hire an attorney or what?
