To put everything straight, we have to come back in 6-8 weeks for a bronch check-up. Hopefully they can get his other tests coordinated to be done at the same time. If not, then we are going to wait until spring to come back and do the tests. This is for two reasons, one we want to enjoy the holidays and two we do not want to put him in any situations that will include lots of people so that he can get sick. So the bottom line is we wait, not the best news and not the worst.
On a side note, pumpkin ice cream at Graeter's is AMAZING! Coming back in 6-8 weeks may mean cinnamon or egg nog flavors! That is the bright ray of sunshine that makes the trip, can't get seasonal flavors anywhere else.
Thank you for all the kind words and for making this blog part of your day.
