I'd say dehydration and urinary infection, except for the lung involvement.

It could very well be that the lung is infected (although unilateral lung infections are somewhat unusual) and that the swollen lung is pressing down on the kidney and the associated structures.

If the lung infection had spread into the abdominal cavity, then it would quickly spread and become peritonitis. Most urinary infections are INside the urinary tract and do not directly affect the larger abdominal cavity.

It needs to be looked at by a specialist though, maybe a pulmonologist, or maybe an infectious disease specialist.
