In brief: Check liver

This sounds like a very serious problem. The yellow eyes suggests jaundice and liver dysfunction.
In the setting of kidney and heart problems, too, i worry about multiple-system organ failure, a bad problem. All these issues relate. The patient needs volume status addressed, antibiotics and likely evaluation of organ function, quickly and closely. So sorry and good luck.
