Have you had your mom talk to a therapist about her anxieties and concerns.  For me, dealing with issues such as health anxiety and talking it through with a mental health care professional does wonders in getting one through troubled times.   Just be patient, which I know is easier said then done, and get her help.  By learning about this pattern of thinking you can be amazed how someone can recover from this.

I've redacted the above stange message to tease out the actual message and leave behind the alphabeticallist of medical terms in which it was embedded. I have no clue as to how or why that happened. Here what the message really is (I'm pretty sure);

How DID that happen anyway?

Anyway, I think the time for more aggreesive therapy has arrived. If the therapist is NOT a shrink, then get a psyhciatrist who can handle the meds AND the talk. Yes, there can be a reaction to ther drugs, but hard to say what it is from here; that's another reason for a psychiatrist. Yes, yes, it may take some money -but guess what, you get to have your mom back -and so does she. Consider it.
