I'm glad this thread was bumped. I saw the headline in the news but didn't realize it was the man from my OP. RIP.

I'd add that some here would be happier if they pried the parentheses out of their keyboards.

Pneumonia is lurking in your lungs all the time. When your immune system finally gets weak enough, or when you are just done with life and ready to pass, it's usually pneumonia. What the doctors call "the old folk's friend" because it lets you die peacefully when you're ready. Your O2 content slowly drops and you just shut down.

Interesting, didn't know about it lurking inside you. I knew it puts strain on your heart and basically gives you heart attacks, strokes and insta-kills you, which is why I always tell my geriatric dad to get vaccinated against it but it sounds like that won't do anything?

Pneumonia is medical term for inflection of the lungs from either virus, bacteria, or fungi (extremely rare occurrence). The sequence of events for pneumonia is minor viral infection overwhelming the immune system for moment in the lungs to lead to more potent viral infection or bacterial infection. The moment of weakness for immune system will to lead to whatever bacteria or virus in the community to affect you. Left untreated, pneumonia will affect your breathing and blood circulation as the heart pumping through the damage blood vessels of the lung and fluid build up from inflammation.
