Thank you so much for your help! I lost my Mom, her plants are my daily visit with her.<br />

The plant is still alive. It is in desperate need of getting repotted into a larger pot with fresh cactus soil. There are also some spots of rot on the plant (the soft brown spots) and you should spray them with a fungicide, like Neem oil.<br />

Good Luck,<br />
