Well she came out of the staph infection pretty good. But she was home for about a week and a half and now she is back in the hospital with pneumonia. She is battling this fever and can't seem to break it. They have her on about 4 different antibiotics and it is a slow go right now. I know even with a healthy person pneumonia is hard to overcome, but with all of the other complications she has I am hoping she can pull through this one. They are giving her radiation on her arm for the bone tumor though, so that is good. And her oncologist still isn't sure if he is going to put her back on chemo or not. He doesn't know if it will even help any at this point. So of course it's more wait and see. Has anyone on here caregiver or patient that has had pneumonia with lung cancer pull through ok or what?
