I'm sorry about your dad. In the usa, if this were me, my advance directive would have kicked on day 2 and i would have been taken off all support. Your dad may or may not have shared his wishes, but i'm going to assume that you now speak for him. Demand to know the likely outcome, and get an attorney if you're not satisfied.
