Hi everyone,

this is my first time posting, hello to all that participate :-).

I have an aunt who is in hospital, she is 75 years old and I was told by the doctors that she has water/fluid in the membrane of her lungs. My family and I are pretty much stranded and feel helpless like anyone would in a situation like this and so I just wanted to ask if anyone here knows anything about what the conidition is called and just some general information about the condition. I didn't get the name of her condition, but from bouncing around google I came across a condition called - pleural effusion. That's the closest i've come to trying to find what this condition is called but if anyone could shed some light about this condition I would really appreciate it :d.

Thank you for your time,

- antonio
