My friend has been in the hospital for 12 days. She can't breathe, she hurts all over, and her oxygen keeps dropping. What could this be?

In brief: Possible lung clot
She needs a very urgent evaluation for clot in the lung.
Even if this is not the case, any reason for difficulty with breathing like pneumonia, need to be evaluated as soon as possible.
