greetings friend, depending on the severity and the type of bacteria or virus that is causing the pneumonia, your friend might recover. If there are no other organs failing, like the lungs kidneys or liver, and your friend is alert, this is a good sign. if the pneumonia stays stable and there is not complete acute respiratory distress syndrome, as described by her doctors, this also gives a good prognosis. Best of luck to you and I don't think anybody could be more specific at this time. If your friend is in intensive care unit, it is probably best safe, and appropriate medical care to keep her there. Hope this is helpful , and have a good day.
