My step-daughter who is 19, was diagnosed with this yesterday. We have never heard of it and from what we are reading, we are terrified. She had been sick for a couple of weeks and went to the doctor. They diagnosed her with pneumonia. After her breathing treatments and antibiotics at home she did not get any better. She went to the ER with a fever and was then admitted last Monday. On Thursday, she was sent to a different hospital and put into ICU. They said her lymph nodes were inflamed and she had masses on her lung. They took tissue samples from the lymph and lung for biopsy. During this, she was put on a ventilator because she was struggleing to breathe. Her levels have gone from 66% to 80% to 90% yesterday and down to 75% this morning. Are there any questions that we should be asking the physicians or do you have any insight on this?
