aaaaaaaayour mother is suffering from lung abscess which at this age and with other co morbidities is considered serious. She does needs hospitalization and rightly she has been put in the pulmonary care unit. She is being treated with broad spectrum antibiotics. as per your description she has shown improvement though it may be very small as of now. I suggest you should have faith in her doctors since it seems the best is being done for her.
