I am not a physician.  Many of the symptoms are consistent with high dose   
radiation exposure, e.g. the early alopecia.  Is it possible that she had   
an exposure shortly before becoming ill?  As a chemist did she use any   
radio-isotopes?  Also could be consistent with a chemical exposure.  What   
was her blood profile like? 
Best wishes for her recovery,
