The weight loss over the last year,but she eats as much as she always has. The other symptoms the last 3 days

Ok, I'm concerned that the signs that you describe could indicate hyperthyroidism and secondary hypertension.Hyperthyroidism can cause the weight loss in spite of a great appetite, vomiting, as well as inappropriate urination and defecation.Hypertension can cause retinal detachment.

If she has hypertension, the faster we diagnose it and begin treatment, the better her chances of regaining full vision. If you are able, I would take her to a hospital immediately to have her blood pressure measured.
