This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
I completely understand your concerns from limited information.
Your daughter in law likely had a serious infection --given the weight loss constant diarrhea, bacterial infection is more likely.
Due to the dehydration and spreading bacterial toxins she went into septicemic shock.
That is triggered by body's overwhelming immune response.
That can continue for sometime even though infection itself may be gone.
Recovery will be gradual with careful monitoring.
Hence yes hard to calm your mind, but as long as her vital signs and lab numbers are improving, we are in right track.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
