Default HELP!!! Urgent!!

Hi I'm new here and a new hedgehog owner. I found a baby hedgehog in not sure how old. She was separated from her mum and roughed it out outside for between 4 days and a week. I've taken her to the vet got her antibiotics and anti parasite medicine a warm pack for her cage and i am currently holding her while she sleeps to make sure she stays warm. I think she has a URI - sneezing wet nose slightly dripping and making a slushy sound. She's asleep now but i think she may be dieing. Does ANYONE have any extra tips to help me save her. PLEASE!

Is this a wild hedgehog? Is she still on antibiotics? If so they should help clear up a URI if she does have one.
Is she eating and drinking? If not much, then you should syringe feed her as this will help her stay strong. What are you feeding her? Make sure to keep her warm and her belly is always warm to the touch.
