A few questions that I don't know who to ask???

One of my very close friends was just diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. There are a few questions that I was thinking but you don't want to ask the people involved because it's so sensitive. My friend also has PCP and has a tube in her throat so she can't answer me. Can anyone?
1 - They say her immune system is dead...is there anything they can do to rejuvinate it?
2 - What is the next step? She is in the hospital with PCP and her lungs keep collapsing...is this going to continue because her immune system will not allow her to heal?
3 - What type of remisssion and/or reoccurances are standard with AIDS?
4 - Do the CD4 and Viral Levels ever go back to their correct levels or do they continue to keep the person at high risk?
