How to say the following sentence in russian?

I'm a member of a group where people love languages and everyday there's a little "challenge" for us. Yesterday, we had to translate a simple dialogue and of the sentences was "How is your mother doing?". How I'd say that in russian? I thought about "как твоя мама?", but when I googled it, appeared that so not nice expression (if you know what I mean), so I opted by "Как твоя мама поживает?", but the doubt it's still here...

    If it's a general question:
    Как Ваша (твоя) мама?
    Как поживает Ваша (твоя) мама?

    Both your variants are right.
    Also you can ask "Как дела у твоей мамы?"

    Как поживает твоя мама, сестра (твой папа, брат, дядя)?
    Как дела у твоей мамы?
    Чем занималась твоя мама? Чем занимался твой папа, брат..?
    Что делает твоя мама?
    Чем занимается твоя мама сейчас?
    Что делает твоя мама (твой папа) сейчас?
