Customer Question

My 78 year old mom got the flu on / about Dec 12th. She was taken to the ER on Dec 15th. She has been going in and out of recovery, feeling weak and achy. It is 4:30am and she is "sick" and asking if we should call the paramedics. She is not running a fever. She says she his sick all over and I cannot get any better description. I wouldn't want to take her out of her bed and just take her to the ER and sit. I don;t know what to do.

I would take her to ER right now.

This could be a complication like pneumonia (which is common) or kidney failure
