Our expert says:
Ammonia is a chemical, not a condition. I can only guess that what the doctor might have said is pneumonia. If that is so, then it refers to an infection of the lung itself. If she has a drink problem, then often this is associated with aspiration pneumonia, which can be very serious. Clearly she is extremely ill, otherwise she would not be in the Intensive Care. Death is always a risk from complications, but only the doctor who is looking after her can give you that kind of information.
I hope she recovers fully and soon.
