"The nervous system stuff does concern me. She mentioned when she was last here that she prefers to prick the side of one of her fingers, when I asked why, she said it was because it's numb and she can't feel it when she sticks there. My fingers are super sensitive and I can't imagine sticking them with a needle daily, but she says that since hers are numb in spots she prefers that over the arm testing meters. I just hope that's not an indicator that things are slipping there as well."

numb is not good. however, i don't know what it means, it is possible it has nothing to do with diabetes, her doc should be told. your first post mentioned she is taking drugs for other things, so all that has to be sorted out, and can't be done here. it sounds like you live in separate places, but if possible take her to the doc and make sure (s)he is getting all the symptoms. good luck.
