My wife has been suffering from pneumonia for the past four months, she's had bouts of Pneumonia (off and on) for the last two years. She was recently diagnosised with MRSA and as of yesterday a blood infection.

At the end of August a spot in her right lung appeared in an MRI. A biopsy was scheduled and no spot was found. She was placed on a heavy antibotic, but did not shake the Pneumonia. Recenty, she was placed on Vancomycin, but after a week and a half her fever spike to 103. She was taken to the hospital and this time the spot appeared again, only more pronounced and "interspacial". A biopsy is being done today, and guesses on what it might be?
