してらっしゃる is an abbreviation of していらっしゃる.

If it's really a friend and you're not a pretentious Tokyo female,

Not a conjugation.  It's an irregular polite (keigo) equivalent to

 > の」

「と」is a particle used for indicating quotation (among other things)
and is often used as an abbreviation for 「という」 and itself has an
abbreviated or informal form 「って」.  「のこと」can be loosely
translated as [that] "kind of thing".  So an idiomatic rendering might
be something like "I hear [gather] you're still in the hospital.
Sounds tough!"
