We have been trying to get her go to doctor she is 81 and refuses.

Call 911 and let the EMTS evaluate. They can be VERY persuasive, charming and good looking and have been known to get reluctant little old ladies to ER where their lives are then saved.

Does your mother want to die? That's a serious question; if she doesn't have dementia, I would ask her that, because she WILL die of electrolyte imbalance if this is not corrected. If she DOES have dementia, YOU are the adult in the room.

Either way, I'd call 911, if only to protect myself from being charged with neglect when she dies.

She's been vomiting regularly for 2 months and has high blood pressure....She's been unable to keep anything solid down?

Unless she's in chemo there's something, very, very, very wrong here.

Call 911 NOW. And do it before something happens and you definitely could be visited by APS.

I think it's time for home care to come in and provide care. Someone with medical knowledge needs to be involved immediately.

Johnjoe, it would be best to post your question as a new Question, otherwise it would be missed because the title of this eating question doesn't reflect your issues.

If she is throwing up everything, each and every time, she's getting dehydrated and malnourished, if she's not already in that condition. She may not want to go to a doctor, but she's going to be seeing one in the ER very quickly.

When did this start, how long has it been going on, can she keep down anything, including fluids? More information would help, as well as what other conditions she has.

Babalou, very good points. I especially like the concept of the charming and good looking EMTs convincing a little old lady to get help!

Seriously, I think your points are well taken - all of them.

Sweetpea, DO let us know what's going on. I understand that it's be going on for a while, but in this heat (I see it's 96 today in your part of Arkansas ), this is not a condition to be fooled with.
