Pneumonia

What started off as a sinus infection for Steve, has now turned into pneumonia. We went yesterday for chemo, but they sent him for a chest X-ray instead. So he is on antibiotics. I worry because he is panting. At first it was when he exerted himself. By exertion, I mean walking 12 steps to the bathroom. But now he is panting just sitting in bed. When I would check on him at night, he was breathing 3 breaths to my one. This can't be good on his heart.

I'll call the doctor today and let them know. He has a follow up appointment tomorrow morning. I worry.
