Dad was admitted again this morning for pneumonia....he'd been up since 3am coughing and finally at 5am he told my step mom, "You better call 911 because I can hardly breathe." So, I'm coping but worried... how much longer can this go on?
It is hard to say, unless like Patsy, he has pnuemonia in the only good lung. However, from what I have learned/experienced, he needs to breathe as deep as he can. I think that antibiotics alone may not be enough if one cannot get a deep enough breath to clear the pnuemonia.
I am sorry to hear this. I will pray for you, your dad and family.
