Brief Answer:
Immediate steps suggested

Detailed Answer:
I am sorry to hear about the condition of your wife. Although I would need you to upload the reports, the immediate management will consist of the following:
* Limit the fluid intake.
* Place her in a head-end raised condition. You can use pillows stacked behind her back.
* Avoid cold temperatures.
* Give steam inhalation if possible. Nebulisation is a better alternative but if you do not have it available, you need not get anxious

The stomach pain could be due to associated gastritis.
* Give her small Prilosec (omeprazole) once daily
* Refrain from use of pain-killers. If they need to be given, be sure to give then in full stomach.
* Avoid long gaps between meals.

Hope that helps.
