I have a 2 year old daughter who was born 31 weeks 6 days, she weighed exactly 4 pounds ...
3 days after her second birthday she got pneumonia, it was a 5 day hospital stay.. And she just had another 5 day stay this week.... She does have congenital adrenal hyperplasia, but that doesn't affect the lungs..
I'm wondering if any one else's children have developed pneumonia like this.. is this going to happen every time she gets an upper respiratory infection????

Was your child on a ventilator after birth? Was there any mention of her having Chronic lung disease (CLD) or Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD). Often babies born prematurely and who have respiratory issues requiring the use of mechanical ventilation or supplemental Oxygen, will develop some scarring of their lungs and have residual sensitives for the first couple of years. Most outgrow these tendencies.
