I did some googling on the lung rinse thing. As far as I have been able to find - it is administered with a nebulizer. Didn't see anything about duration or liquid makeup/type, but did learn it is a treatment for pneumonia.

Hi Sass
so sorry to hear you are in the hospital!
Hugs and prayers sent your way
as far as the lung "washing"..I believe they put you to sleep and flush out your lungs with saline...no you dont drown LOL they suction the fluids out...its a kinda in and out thing like washing out a bottle...it will help flush out some of the bacteria.
A friend of mine had it done when she had pneumonia that didnt respond to antibiotics well enough.
Best wishes and please keep us informed when you feel up to it!

Sass, sending you many gentle hugs and prayers - the rinsing lungs sounds scary, but remember - before we're born, we "breathe" amniotic fluid regularly in preparation for breathing air so I'm sure they'll have a way to supply your body with oxygen while they work on getting your lungs functioning again.

You'll be in my thoughts and please let us know how you're doing when you can!
