High diabetis and sugar

My friend stayed at my house last night, shes a diabetic and her sugars were high, well she ended up throwing up all night and wasn't getting better at all. She was constantly throwing up and was hot and exhausted. Did i do the right thing by calling 911? They started fluids right away and admitted her to the hospital, her sugars were over 600. She was in ICU so they could monitor her today/tonight. How long will they keep her in the hospital? Shes a single mom and i am watching her 3yr old daughter and had to miss work as my friend had no one else to watch her and abviously cant have her at the hospital with her. Her daughter knows shes sick and in the hospital and was here when they took her away and we went and saw her today. But misses her mom alot.
