Chateau Perilloux is the nunnery from Monty Python and the holy grail. I wish to face the Peril!!! No. Its much too perilous.

Sounds like Juan is mentally more or less all there. Slipping clues to your partner while heavily drugged and badly broken requires a strong mind.

I guess Juan was supposed to be too incapacitated to reveal anything incriminating.  Doctor's orders.

Seriously. Time for a transfer to a different hospital.

The spouse wanted life support cut off, the parents didn't. It was in court for years.

If you're talking about Terri Schiavo, there was no life support involved other than food and water.  The spouse claimed she "wouldn't want to be a vegetable" and wanted her euthanized.  The parents wanted to feed and care for her.  She was unable to feed herself.   The court ordered an armed guard to prevent anyone attempting to bring her water while she slowly dehydrated over the course of a week (indicating her robust physical health despite the brain damage).

Yup we meant the same thing. Hospitals consider IV Food and Water life support. And regardless of how you feel about that the point is that if she had declared someone a DPOA there wouldn't have been a fight over it. Juan might end up the same way. Physically fine, but with brain damage.

Sounds like Juan is confirming that Lorelei has something to do with his attack.  Diana better not go back.

This sounds a lot like power of attorney, in which case it's fully Diana's call to make. I don't think Scott's futuristic Libertarian almost-utopia works quite like that, though.

Hard to say- It strikes me that they would consider next-of-kin to be able to make the decision in the authors world, but what happens if the heirs (if there are more than one) disagree? Look at that case in Flordia a few years back to see the effects of the different between "heir" and "official medical designee" The spouse wanted life support cut off, the parents didn't. It was in court for years.
Sounds like a "Choose your friends carefully," sort of thing.
