He was however diagnosed with bilateral maxillary sinusitis and reactive airway disease. Basically the first one means heíll be on antibiotics for at least three weeks, including a medication that we squirt into his nose. The second one means that he doesnít have allergies but is highly sensitive to smells like smoke, perfumes, paint etc.

If things donít seem to clear up in a month then the doctor may want him to come back to the clinic, but is pretty sure this medication will kick the problem. So we are definitely praising God and thankful for all his blessings as this could have been much worse of an outcome.

Glad to hear he's alright Hoosier, really I am. Something a doctor once told me, and this is something I can't stand because it makes you worry so much.

When we typically have car problems, we usually check the simple things first. Rarely do we say when our car doesn't start: "Darn, time to put a new engine in this thing!" We usually will check the battery, alternator, etc... i.e- the simple things.

Unfortunately, with medical science most doctors are taught to look at the worst possible scenario first and work backwards. A lot of times they come back with answers that send shivers down our spine: "Cancer, heart disease, etc..." only until they can eliminate those findings do they continue to narrow down the list to the less volatile problems. Unfortunately, it doesn't always do us, or in your case, the parents a lot of good because we hear those "bad words" and instantly assume the worst. I guess I should have brought that up before... Sorry!

But, do keep that in mind next time you or a family member has to go to the doctor. It may help relieve some of your stress(es).

I just stumbled in on your thread tonight. I have a son who will turn 4 in december and my heart just broke reading your thread, I am so thrilled that it is nothing with his imune system. God bless you and yours and I will keep you in my prayers.

Hoosier... I will be praying for your little sweetheart. Sounds like everything is going great so far...

I can say from personal experience with Mayo that they are the best! We took my daughter there when her UC was out of control and she was a very sick little girl.. That was two years ago. Her ulcerative colitis is in remission now, she is no longer anaemic, no more crippling arthritis, and she has gained 6 or 7 pounds which puts her just about perfect. She will always be on medication.. but we are ok with that as long as it is under control.

Please keep us updated!!

I say little girl.... she was 18 at the time/ 20 now, but she will always be my little girl... and besides... she is very small. She OFTEN gets mistaken for a 12 year old...LOL... I laugh... but it bothers the dickens out of her sometimes. It is funny how everyone comes up with the same age.
