Well, if she pees a lot, then the one kidney is still working somewhat decently. When you say they can't find her kidney, do you mean the one that never grew or the one working one? There is something there that is working. The dizzy and light-headed may be something else. Having only one kidney is, in itself, okay - she can survive well with just one. If that one has an issue, then it's time to worry.
