 Need help with humidity and poss. sick snake

Okay so I sold a blood 3 mnths ago and well the person decided it wasnt for her and I got the snake back yesterday.BUT it was not properly cared for (overheated and dry) and is severely dehydrated.She is also mid shed and needless to say the shed is coming off in little pieces. I gave her a good soak for 20 min yesterday and got quite a bit off.
But I think(not confirmed) that she may be getting an RI as well.Im not sure how high I should make her humidity.Ive read a few times that high humidity is bad for an RI but if she is dehydrated she needs the humidity.
So Ive currently put in a bin with 88 high, 80 low and humidity is hanging around 75 percent.I put her on cypress/topsoil mix to keep up the humidity.Anyone have any advice to help her through this over the next few weeks.Im keeping an eye on her breathing, if I confirm she has an RI she will go to the vet.
