Hi there and thanks so much for posting this interesting question. From what I understand in your letter I can see that your mother is experiencing an inevitable consequence of aging.

However the coughing liquid should be treated as very dangerous and emergency it is required to make sure she doesn't have anything more serious.

It looks like your mother has gone through some rough challenges and In any case I think that you should still have her checked and make sure that through a brain scan you can see no signs of brain infection at all. Through brain scans they can see if she has some infection in the head. SOmetimes liquid cumulated in the inner ear tends to leak and can cause an infection but I would not trust building hypothesis and get her checked and monitor with neurologists if there is a signal of infection in the head that is causing that cough.

I hope this helps
