infant dies 23hrs after seeing M.D.

My son who was a little over 2 & 1/2 mon. old had a very bad couch and alot of congestion. He also had a very concering vowel movement, black and tar like with a horrible order. We were concerend because our older son was just hospitalized the week prior with shigella, a form of salmahnilla. With the baby not having shots yet it scared us.

The pediatrician said he just had a little bit of a head cold and to just go home and use the vaporizer. The next afternoon he passed while taken his nap.

Autopsy's cause of death was bronchopneumonia,laryngitis, trachetis and bronchitis. I feel giving the circumstances the doc should have detected one of theses ailments or at least ran tests. Any other oppions would be greatfully appreciated.
