Tree squirrel with aspiration pneumonia

Hi, This is a lot of firsts for me. I am a new rehababor for squirrels and first time in a chat form.( so please forgive my mistakes) I have 4 babies @ 3 1/2 weeks old. One developed aspiration pneunomia. He has been to the vet and is on smz-tmp 2 times per day. He eats well most feedings and is having bowl movements and urinating. I have a vaporizer going in his room and am keeping him warm. He still clicks ( but not as bad as first) but he began coughing a little. Can I do anything else to help his recovery? The vet gave him a 60/40 chance. Any info would be GREATLY appreciated.
P.S. the others are doing well.
