Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

     Sodium at such a low level could be ominous. She may need more investigation to diagnose and treat it.. Usually it is dilutional / prolonged and with cough, CT lung may be necessary
     Problem in walking may be from the drug...
     It is wiser to be under observation and investigation, observation and treatment in a multi-speciality tertiary care hospital – till things are sorted out..
     Discuss with your doctor

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
