My best friends mom is in terrible condition. She has been having strokes, doesn't recognize her kids, horrible blood pressure, etc. She's very sick and has almost gone into a coma several times this week. She's been in and out of the ICU and her doctor said he'd be surprised if she made it to the end of the year and that the family should prepare themselves.
My friend just turned 18, she lost her father in a horrible car accident when she was 15, she also just got out of a 3 year relationship, and just a had a miscarriage. She has a lot on her plate, and if her mother passes she has nowhere to go. Her older siblings will all separate and move to different states. She doesn't want to leave home.
