She's lucky 2 have U: Your mom is lucky to have you! i wish i could just come over ; check on her, but i'm about 3000 miles away. Continue to encourage her to do the right thing and show her your love. Call her md to discuss the options. And if it comes down to it call an ambulance and take her to the er. In the er, we can make sure she is on the right track even if it's not a dire emergency. Keep up the great work!
