13. i'd say to gently broach the subject

if the news is bad

you told peggy your mom is 87 w/health issues
blurting out "bad news" probably isn't a good idea--especially if she's having difficulty breathing to begin with.

and then maybe couch the "bad news" with the "bright side" or up side or give it a bit of a positive or uplift.

good luck. be kind/gentle w/your mom
i'd love to be able to still have mine to worry over how to tell her bad news. or good news. or just that i love her.
