Hi, Rehankhan,
Thanks for query.
This report is positive for typhoid but Usually Widal test for typhoid becomes positive after 7-8 days of fever.
So confirm the diagnosis.
If it is typhoid then nothing to worry. With medicine within few days it will be alright.
Give her light diet and rest.
Ok and bye.

typhoid is a water borne disease,once you get typhoid you can again get typhoid and cause lots of weakness,so you have to bbe careful about what you eat and drink.if she iis able to take medicines orally a antibiotic course for 7 days will be enough and sufficient and lead to complete cure,or she can be given ceftriaxone intra venously which is also given for 7 days .
dont worry she will alright.
