Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. While we would love to be able to help you online, this is not a forum for urgent advice. Its great for questions and answered about medical issues. Urgent care should be done at your emergency room in person. Maybe you can help her get there. I hope this information is helpful to you. Please reply with any questions you may have. Thank you for coming to Just Answer for help.
