I am sorry to hear about your dog's recent difficulty but because of the white gums, my best recommendation is to take her to an emergency veterinarian right away. There may be lots of thinks going on with her including an allergic reaction, internal bleeding, heart disease, or anemia to name just a few that can cause white gums but all of these require emergency treatment. If you do not know of the nearest emergency hospital near you, I would be happy to help you locate one.
