I'm so glad Xolair is as much a miracle for your DS as it has been for mine! Logan is still taking it monthly (over 3 years now WOW!) and no asthma in sight - yea!! He also rarely gets sick anymore - I guess he's better able to fight off the germs.
Logan's IgE levels put him into the twice montly dosing and when it came up for reapproval our insurance actually fought the doctor to try and get Logan more Xolair LOL. The pulmo finally convinced them it was working fine with once a month, so why mess with it. Logan did have to miss one dose this summer because of an insurance change, so it was 8 weeks between shots. He finally got his shot last week but has since broken out with horrible eczema. He hasn't had skin problems since he was 3 or 4 years old, so I'm not sure what's going on. I'm hoping it's just because the Xolair isn't fully back into his system yet.
Thanks for the update!
