    Doctors are stumped, bleeding lungs

    My husband had coughed up blood tinged mucus, so went to emergency room, oxygen level at 60. Took chest xray, cat scan, he was spitting up so much blood could not keep oxygen mask on, intubated, took echo cardiogram, heart treat, took to ICU on October 12, still on October 24th the doctors don't know what it is.
    Took 58 blood tests, all came back negative, so they have him on steroids and antibiotics and of course he is being helped with a respirator.
    Yesterday, they got him off the intubator and now he has a humidity oxygen mask on him. No more spitting up of blood from the lungs, but the doctors still don't know what it is to treat it.
    Now they want to do a lung biopsy.
    Does anyone know of anyone who has had this problem.
    Also, the kidneys were involved.
    So the doctors tell us everyday that they don't know what he has and they don't know how to treat it.
    Help, I am going out on my own for him, has anybody heard of bleeding lungs and they also did a bronchial scope and they did not see any tumors, cancers,
    Thank you for your help
