Just to play devil's advocate, because we were talking about this at work today...

Pneumonia is one of those things that, particularly when you're older, you tend to get whenever there is something else wrong. Doctors have a tendency to release patients when they're not completely, 100% over the pneumonia, which means that it flares up again. So it is very likely that it actually IS pneumonia.

Now, that doesn't mean that he shouldn't get a second opinion... particularly if he can go somewhere they're likely to keep him longer (though insurance often precludes that).

I hope he starts to feel better soon.
