Allie, you are not selfish. You have given more of yourself than should be expected.
Yes, when released she probably will start drinking again. She is still not admitting that she has a big problem with alcohol. I'm concerned about the pain she is feeling. That tells me that the infection is still there. They probably need to try a different antibiotic. At least that would keep her there longer, though unfortunately the end result will probably be the same due to her drinking.
Do remember to take care of yourself.
