My 12 month old grandson was just diagnosed with a genetic immune deficiency disease. It wasn't a surprise - I have it and my three sons have it. So far my grandson has been healthy because he is breastfed but recently he has stopped growing.
My DIL is in denial. She went back to work 2 months ago and my son and I take care of my grandson. She is very focused on her work right now. She doesn't like doctors, sickness and hates hospitals. I have to get IVs every 3 weeks and am in the hospital several times a year.
The 20 year survival rate is only 64%. We know she doesn't have a clue but it would be easy to find on the internet. My son says to not tell her. I won't tell her! I think a mother should know if there is only a 64% chance her child will grow up. I think he should tell her.

I would not give up-I would find a naturopathic doctor ASAP. I also hate doctors and hospitals and all the conventional methods. I hope your GS is not vaccinated as that will not help his body fight this disease-it will leave his body defenseless as it fights the toxins in the vaccines.
why tell her when clearly you have made it past 20 and so has the other people you mentioned?? She probably already knows.
