  1. I don't think the answer is there. If the mother is in the waiting room, then someone could reach her before Mary is "sewn back up" to know her wishes. I'm sure her wishes would be A, but getting the parent's consent for a minor is needed if the parent is around. If the parent were not nearby, then, yes -- A.
