right to die for my 51 year old sister in a vegetative state?

My 51 yr old sister attempted suicide 2 weeks ago. It was an overdose but we don’t know what she took. She is now in a vegetative state. My mother, her power of attorney, put on a DNA order. My sister has been ill on and off since she was 9 yrs old. She developed Guillain Barre Syndrome and become paralyzed form the nose down. She recovered but her right side was left weaker, so she didn’t grow properly, and had two rods inserted along her spine due to scoliosis. By 19 she had Crone’s Disease, which was extremely painful, and eventual had her colon removed. She was 28. She then developed numerous fistula’s and was still suffering from them at the time of her suicide attempt. She had stage 2 breast cancer at age 45. Another major back surgery 2 years later, that left her in constant pain. A year later they reversed the majority of what they did the year prior. She continued to live in pain everyday and was working with a pain clinic for the last 2 years. Everyday was a struggle – she lived alone. She often spoke of suicide because she was so sick of the pain. When she finally did proceed, it was very well planned out. Three notes, and instructions on her computer for pertinent details that we would need. Unfortunately, she did not succeed with her plan and is living her worst nightmare.
Our family wants to stop nourishment, but the doctor is saying she has to be brain dead, which she is not. They are saying the MRI and EEG show that her brain is, for the most part, normal. The problem is that she is physically presenting a vegetative state. My sister would be horrified that this is happening to her. This is the last thing she would want. No matter what happens, she will still have the daily pain, but now she will also have numerous mental and physical handicaps. I don’t understand why they insist on continuing care (pick lines, feeding tube change, etc.). I thought what the patient wanted and the family’s wishes were considered, nor did I think withholding nourishment in a case like this was illegal. Any opinion on what our rights are?
