Pneumonia again

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?

Re: Pneumonia again

hi Ayre-

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.

Re: Pneumonia again


Sorry to hear your Dad is back in the hospital. I hope he has a rally and many more good days. My husband has been fighting bad Stage IV for 2 1/4 years now and he's still hanging tough.

Many warm thoughts and hugs for you.
