Sorry to hear about this

So is he got difficulty in breathing?

Which treatment is he getting currently?

No, she just cant seem to catch her breath, and her heart is racing. She has had a cough for a week, causing a lack of sleep. She has had a temperature for 2 days and is lethargic and not eating. No medications
