911

My mom asked me to call the ambulance for her tonight because she was not feeling well at all. She came home from work, walked through the door and I could hear her breathing heavily. I was already a bit concerned, and a few hours later her face was flushed. She had a fever and her breathing was not normal. She was feeling extra tired at rest and her legs and ankles were swollen. I could not be there with her at the hospital because I'm taking care of my dad. This will be her second time going to the hospital, and it is one week later. Tonight, it was already past 11:00 p.m. when I called 911.
