Hey ladies, I know I have not been on in a long time, busy with work and a sick kid. Just wanted to give you all an update on the little man. We finally got a referral for a pediatric immunologist. At the visit he said there is no doubt that little guy has an immune deficiency. He drew more labs that we weren't able to get done on base, and referred us to their pediatric pulmonologist. We have that appointment in a little over a week, his labs should be back by our next appointment. If the labs come back abnormal we may be sent back to the states, because they cannot provide the treatment he needs here. I am happy to finally have some answers. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers for us while we struggled through this hard time with him. I am hoping that immune replacement is what they recommend so he can start to be healthy for once.

  • Hope all works out,just curious do you want to be stateside? If that happens do you have a choice as to what base/state?
