She looks sick? Is there any saving her?

@DreamboatLippia it looks like her flowers died. I would just take the rest of the day off, believe it or not keep taking care of the plant the same way you always have and you can actually have it flower again if you propagate it through division, but the plan is still alive. The flower has just died, I hope this helps
She won't bloom again, and she's not dead yet, but it's time for her to retire. Check if she has any babies sprouting next to her roots or not yet; we call the babies 'pups.' If you don't see them yet, be patient, but first, cut the flower to let the mother plant concentrate her energy on the pups and not on a completely dead flower. When the new pups reach about three-quarters the size of the mother plant, then you can separate them from her. You'll have at least 2 or 3 new plants to replace the mom
