MY MOM STARTED HAVING BREATHING PROBLEMS, SHORTNESS OF BREATH. SHE WENT TO THE ER 2 TIMES, FIRST TIME THEY EXTRACTED LIQUID OUT OF HER LEFT LUNG WITH A SYRINGE AND GAVE HER SOME BREATHING TREATMENTS AND SENT HER HOME AFTER 2 DAYS. SHE STARTED HAVING BREATHING PROBLEMS AGAIN 2 DAYS LATER AND WENT BACK TO THE ER AND WITH FURTHER TESTING COMES TO FIND OUT SHE IS SUFFERING WITH KIDNEY ISSUES, A RESPIRATORY INFECTION AND PULMONARY ISSUES. THEY ONCE AGAIN EXTRACTED MORE LIQUID OUT OF HER LEFT LUNG AND GIVING HER MORE BREATHING TREATMENTS ALONG WITH SMALL DOSES OF KIDNEY MEDICATION AND A GOOD DIET. SHE IS ALSO DIABETIC. I AM WORRIED THAT THIS IS GOING TO BE AN ONGOING PROBLEM. IS ANYONE ELSE GOING THROUGH OR HAS EXPERIENCED THE SAME THING? WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN OR WHAT COULD HAPPEN? MY MOM IS PRETTY TOUGH. SHE HAS TO STOP SMOKING. THANK GOD SHE HASN'T DRANK A DROP OF ALCOHOL SINCE I WAS 18. PLEASE HELP.

THANK YOU.
