Thank you for the post, your recourse in this situation is to file a petition with the court to invalidate the proxy that your husband executed. Unless and until either your husband modifies the proxy or a court invalidates it, you nor your children have any recourse.

Thanks for your question.Sorry but as long as he was mentally capable here when he made proxy hospital has to honor it.This was his call, and I guess it only hurts himself here in the long run.But he has made his choice and under the law he can do so.I am so sorry he has chosen to do this but its legal.
