To start this off Hei Hei was attacked to what we believe was a raccoon. My Wife loves this chicken and she wanted me to take care of her. I was able to stop the bleeding and clean her wounds however now I am starting to worry about other things that I am not sure how to handle. First she has a swollen area on the side of her neck above the crop and her beak. Second she is starting to foam at the mouth after a few days from injury. I will also add when she was initially injured she was making a snoring sound but it has gone away since her injuries have started to heal. Any assistance will be very appreciated. I have also attached photos if that helps.

Sounds like her lungs are probably filling with fluid, which likely indicates an infection. I'd also guess infection from the lump. Does it feel hotter than the rest of the area around it?
Is a vet an option?

It is not warm and she is no longer making any snoring noises. There is a vet but all she ever says for the chickens is to put them down. Speaking from past experience from other visits.
