My son was diagnosed with this friday, and we spent the weekend in the hospital. The nurses couldnt tell me too much about it, apparently none of them had heard about it before. The doctor just said it was inflamation of the lungs. My son is doing great, but is there anyone out there who has had to deal with this before?? Im still really scared and worried about my baby. He's 5 months old. They admitted him because his blood oxygen saturation was around 90. When we left, it was averaging around 96-97. Is there somewhere that any of you know of that I can rent an oxygen saturation monitor, just for a little piece of mind.
Im not finding too much about pneumonitus on the internet, so I'd love to hear someone elses story about it.
