My sister was diagnosed with Non Specific Intertestial Pnuemonia on March 3, a condition that was supposed to be treatable with Presidone. By March 12 she was admitted to the emergency unit and as of today is being put on a resprirator as doctors say she is not getting enough oxygen into her blood. Doctors say she had a bacteria that complicated this condition and they have been treating her with anti-biotics. Apparently the antibiotics have created this stress and they are monitoring her heart. At this point what can we do? She is in a small hospital in Puerto Rico and moving her to a larger place to the US is out of the question. The doctors there say she is in no condition to be moved. Thank you--Manita
