Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Your sister is in good hand.
Investigations and management are proceeding in the right direction.
The parameters need review in early days, not necessarily revision - one has to first correct associated abnormalities like potassium...
Continued assessment and assistance are mandatory.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
