    I would say that last 2 days refers to the 2 days that terminate any period, regardless of where that period is located in time. For example, you can say: I felt really bad during the last 2 days of that trip in The past 2 days refers to the 2 days preceding the moment of speaking. So it cannot be used as above.

    Both examples are fine (the semantic difference is simply whether the "narrative time" is in the present or the past).. But it's unnecessary to repeat the Past Perfect with she had last eaten in the first version, since it's contextually obvious she last ate/slept before the passage of the two days. As a rule, native speakers don't tend to use Past Perfect repeatedly because it's stylistically.

    Remembrance of May Days Past. I woke up this morning and realized it was May Day — and was unutterably relieved things have changed from the May Days of my childhood. May Day was a holiday.
