I'm not sure how serious that is. But the last time with my sister had that that they admit her into the hospital. My mom has been in the emergency room all day long. What can I possibly expect her to do for herself at home.

It does it make sense that they are sending her home with pneumonia. That is not right.

She's going for EKG now. I don't know what they're going to do with Health Care for Seniors but this is crazy.

@sharon6345 if they are sending her for an EKG then maybe they will admit her after the results

That is very serious. Why did they send her home?

I just left the hospital and she's on her way home now with some prescriptions.

Gooid lord I would think pneumonia was serious enough that they would hospitalize her.

I don't know what they're doing but if something happens to her mother I will have a lawyer

There are many different kinds of pneumonia. If it were a real problem with her breathing or anything they would keep her

I just had this same experience with my dad. He has pneumonia (and possibly a leaky heart valve), but they said they were going to send him home with antibiotics. Hope your mom is okay.

I hope my mother will be okay as well because we will get a lawyer if something happens to her.

Last time I had pneumonia (I've had it twice), I was exhausted for six weeks and barely got out of bed. Hubby would occasionally hand me grilled cheese sandwiches and Gatorade.

Sorry if I don't know but are you near to your Mom sharon in distance between your places? I know this is a big worry now and so sorry to hear it. I pray she will get well, it is quite serious.

Can you talk to her Doctor. If they send her home someone needs to be there with her until she feels better.
