(CNN) - The battle over Casey Kasem's care continues.

Earlier Monday, a superior court judge in Los Angeles ordered doctors to continue providing food and water to the ailing radio icon.

The judge also said doctors must give Kasem life-sustaining medication, but left it up to doctors to determine what that should be.

Kasem's daughter, Kerri, has the power to make medical decisions for her father, who suffers from Lewy body dementia, a Parkinson's-like condition with no known cure.

Kerri and Kasem's current wife, Jean, disagree about what steps should be taken to treat him.

Both sides will appear in court on Friday as Jean Kasem will attempt to take control of her husband's care.
