Blood loss and recovery w/o hospitalization

I have a character who has basically had razors thrown at her and currently has a bullet in her shoulder. She can't go to the hospital, so she drives about an hour to her hideout in the middle of Whereinthehell, SomeState.

Now, the cuts are shallow so she's not bleeding out immediately, but by the time she gets home she's obviously suffering from blood loss. She's dizzy, confused, and eventually passes out.

I've gotten her taken care of, but I need to know how long she'd be out, keeping in mind she's gone without a blood transfusion and is healing on her own.

I'd also like to know if it's possible for her to wake up and give a short message after roughly 5 or 6 hours of downtime.

The only information I've found on Google is how they would treat her in a hospital, and I've already gotten that bit sorted. And I found nothing useful by searching for more archaic medical information.

Any help would be much appreciated.
