The actress has called on ailing Ward family matriarch Alice Ward to join her at the Oscars - but she won't make plans until doctors give her the go-ahead to invite her.
The 80 year old suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this month (Jan11) and was briefly declared dead.
She made a miraculous recovery, was placed on life support and has since regained consciousness.
Leo tells USA Today, "She's in fragile condition in a Boston hospital... but it would be super for her to go (to the Oscars) with me but I don't know if the doctors will think that's a good idea."
Leo was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in The Fighter on Tuesday (25Jan11).
