Primary diagnosis

I have a unique situation that I have never had to code before. We received a referral for PT only for deconditioning. Another agency is in on this patient for IV's due to Lung abscess, pneumonia. We are only doing the PT. However, I hate to use deconditioning when we should be putting the reason for the deconditioning, yet again we are not treating the lung abscess, pneumonia. How would you code? I welcome your feedback. Thank you for responding.
