PID- Immune disorders

I now have a 3 year old boy and a 5 year old girl with PID-Primary Immune Deficiency. My kids do not make enough immunoglobulins to maintain normal levels within their immune systems. So they get sick more often, and for longer periods, they fatigue quicker and are succeptable to develpoing other autoimmune disorders and various disorders. They are infused with a blood product each week to help maintain normal levels.

My son seems to be doing well. But my daughter is having a whole new set of medical issues. Issues with her Red and white blood cells dropping,itchiness, urinary frequency, fatigue etc...

We see a a new bunch of specialist, so I will let you know the the meantime, any suggestions?
