Dear Wendy
I really think that your dear Mom needs to consult a clinical dietitian because of the seriousness of her condition. Phone (012) 998-5650 (mornings) to obtain the name and address of your nearest dietitian). It is really worth your while to go for a consultation because your Mom needs individual guidance until she has fully recovered.
Best regards
