Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
The history you have peovided is just not enough for anything.
We cannot interpret anything from it.
At least you could have attached her discharge summary along with the reports. We would have been in a better position to help you.
You say she can walk on her own, but you ask what to do to make her walk.
What sort of question is this?
Consult a neurologist in person for further evaluation and management.
Best regards.
Dr. Anil kumar jain.

You have not mentioned whether CT brain, if taken, showed any brain damage or blood clot. No details about duration of unconsciousness, fits etc. Recovery depends on extent and area of brain damage.
Next Steps
Consult a neurologist.
Health Tips
Continue physiotherapy and general supportive care.
