6. The longer she waits, the bigger a crisis she could end up in, and the
more expensive it will be to treat.

Unless she has a stroke and dies instantly.

If she's a friend, get her to a doctor.

4. Can she afford a funeral?
Definitely sounds like a blockage. We just went through this with my BIL. This isn't a cold. She literally will die. Go to the ER and worry about the bills later. Seriously.
