What is Pneumonia?
A severe respiratory infection that damages the lungs is known as pneumonia.
When a healthy person breathes, little sacs in their lungs called alveoli to fill with air.
When someone gets pneumonia, their alveoli are stuffed with pus and fluid, which makes breathing difficult and restricts their ability to take in oxygen.
What are the common causes of pneumonia?
Viruses, bacteria, and fungi can all induce pneumonia. In the United States, typical causes of viral pneumonia are influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). A common reason for bacterial pneumonia is Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus).
Symptoms of Pneumonia
- Chest pain when you respire or cough.
- Confusion or changes in mental awareness (in adults age 65 and older)
- Cough, which may create inertia.
- Fever, sweating, and shaking chills.
- Lower than body temperature (in adults older than age 65 and people with weak immune systems)
- Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.
Why Pneumonia is dangerous foe Elder/old age people?
Pneumonia is an ailment that can affect anyone. However, there are some groups of people that are at increased risk of contracting it.
Children younger than 2 and adults over 65 are most at risk for pneumonia. It is an especially dangerous illness with severe consequences for both children and seniors because the presence of fluid in the alveoli makes it difficult for their lungs to work properly.
As we age, our immune system tends to be less effective, making us more susceptible to illness. In elders, the infection tends to be severe, attesting emergency remedy or even oxygen therapy.

Tributes to Kal David
Sad news from Kal David’s family… Kal passed away today. Aside from being a wonderful musician and singer, many of us Disney fans know his as the voice of our alien friend, Sonny Eclipse. He will always be our Bright Little Star
Kal was such a sweet man. He answered all of my questions about his legacy of performing as Sonny a few years ago in this interview. I’m going to really miss him.
Besides being an incredible guitarist he was one of the nicest human beings I’ve ever met. He played at my dad‘s memorial service, along with Lauri, because he knew my dad adored him. What a great loss for the world.
