I put my son back in daycare after he was diagnosed the first time at 7, and put on steroids. He relapsed the following week and came down with another virus, so got sicker, was put on steroids again, only to relapse. Steroid lower immunity and he was already catching too many bugs there. At that time I pulled him out of daycare, and decided to keep him at home with a caregiver, that was 8 months ago when he was 2. He is still at home, with someone watching him, and his counts are only a little higher.
