Liver and kidney failure

My sister was admitted unresponsive. On the first day we found out her liver and kidneys we failing oxygen was low red blood platelets were low heart rate fast. She was admitted to icu and transfered to different hospital. Dialisis is an option because urine output is low but there is some function there. When she was trasferred they found pneumonia in both lungs. She swollen has gone down then back up again...doctors have no clue...anybody got any ideas?

I got septic shock after contracting flu/double pneumonia. My kidneys, lungs & heart failed.

Was it only pneumonia? Or was there an underlying cause or disease?

I contracted Influenza A & Strep A on approx. a Wednesday by Saturday it was double pneumonia and Sunday I had sepsis and then shock. Multiple organ failure. They did find much much later, that I had chronic lymphatic leukaemia which the hospital believes was coincidental. Pneumonia is terribly dangerous in itself, for some.

As far as we know that is the only cause

Thank u for the information. She has been on dialisis for 24 hrs and is showing improvement. Will she always have to do this now or if she recovers could her kidneys once again function?
