Default Sick baby?

Hi peeps, the other day we found a young hedgehog wondering around during the day, in past experience its never been a good sign to see one in daylight. Anyhow we took her home and other then a few ticks and some fly eggs around her eyes, she was still eating and drinking and seemed to be walking ok. We took her to the vets yesterday, she had a antibiotic jab and we're just waiting for some medication for lungworm. Today she seems to be worse, not eating as much and when i just checked on her, she was walking around sort of swaying and wobbling from side to side. What could this be? i'm no expert on hedgehogs. Do you think theres any hope for this little girl? we really want her to make it.
