Update on Dan

Today I talked to Dan's immunologist. All of Daniel's labs came back normal, except one. Daniel's IgG levels are still low, almost 200 points lower then normal for a child his age. The doctor is not super concerned about this, his thought is that this may be Daniel's normal. . .Which means that he is going to have a life time of infection. Although this is not a good things this is a lot better then a disease or disorder. His only other concern is that his IgG level is lower then it was the last time that they took his blood. We will be doing another set of blood work and labs 3-6 months from now and we will pray that his levels are higher, if they are not then we will be opening some new doors and tests.

So where do we go from here? Daniel still has psoriasis, this could be one of the reasons his IgG levels are low. . .but its not likely. So we are watching him very closely and staying clear of sick kids(as much as that is possible) and we will be keeping in very close contact with his immunologist.

We are so thankful for all of the prayers and support that we have been given in the last few weeks. If you would keep Daniel in your prayers, that would be wonderful. . .but for now I think we are over the hump! Praise the Lord!!
Love you all,
