Hi. I'm 18 and my dad was just diagnosed with hodgkins. He started treatment on saturday. Sunday and Monday he was doing great. He came home monday. Wed. he was having trouble breathing. We wound up bringing him to the ER and it turns out that if we didn't bring him when we did, he could have died. His oxygen was dangerously low. This was because he has Pnemonia all over his right lung and the bottom part of his left. He's on a resporater and they are trying to kill the infection with certain antibiotics. So far things are still the same. I just don't know if this is normal and if it is, how much this may happen. Thank you.
