With so many issues, one needs to personally examine her and go through all the available test reports with her. Then only a proper decision can be taken. Her increased pulmonary artery pressure is likely to be due to the lung problem and needs to be properly evaluated and treated. So I would strongly advise you to meet a qualified cardiologist (with a DM cardiology degree) as soon as possible and get the proper treatment started. Hope this helps.
