    Friday is not going to be fun. As some of you may know, my son has been fairly sick for most of his 2-plus years. Nothing major. Tubes in his ears twice. Lot of hacking, coughing, weezing, etc. We thought it was a milk allergy. Hasn't been officially diagnosed with it yet, but he does have an immune deficiency.

    Wednesday, we went for a meeting with a specialist. We told the doc about his disgusting diapers. He was producing crap that even I couldn't match in the stench department. He's been eating fine but has actually lost a pound in the last couple months. And he still is having breathing issues.

    Friday, he's getting tested for cystic fibrosis. He matches a lot of the symptoms. If he has it, at least we can start mapping out stuff, but it also basically means that the chances of me outliving him go from 95-5 his favor to 50-50 with a life expectancy of 37.

    I was scared before his tubes in his ears. This doesn't scare me. It makes me cry, which I have already. My boy deserves better than this.

    All the best King.

    I'm going through my own nightmare with my Dad.

    It's so much different when it's your son.
  8. I'm so sorry to hear about this King. Thoughts to you and your family.

    No father should outlive his son. Hopefully you won't ever have to worry about that.

    Good luck and Godspeed.
