A warm greetings.
It would have been better for me, if you could write her her medications as well.
Flu does not need antibiotics, how ever water infection may. Did she suffer from gastroenteritis. Probably she had lost her apetite. It will be regained, or else you can start an apetizer.

You can measure the level of viitamin D and can give supplements.
All the best.
