Oh man...that is such good news. In the words of Tom Petty "the waiting is the hardest part". Everyone keep your fingers crossed!
Thanks for the info, Eileen.

WOW! If this is the case then I guess I'm feeling a bit of hope to help with Wade's uncontrolled asthma. I hate it when he's on oral steroids, but it seem to be the only thing that helps when he has a bad flare which seems to be every month or so lately. The worst part right now is there seems to be no clear reason for the episodes, no triggers that we can figure out and he's been tested for every imaginable environmental allergy, frustrating to say the least. This is "great" news!
