Compromised immune systems?

Is there any information regarding the immune systems of a child with

RSS? My granddaughter,Devan, nine months old, has been sick more often

than well, for the last five weeks. She has had upper respiratory

infections, pneumonia, and croup. She has run a temperature, whether

low grade or as high as 103 degrees. Her pediatrician has seen her

almost twice a week for the past month or more and has been

supportative but is stymied.Because of the fever and coughing, she has

frequently vomited her tube feedings. So, naturally , her growth has

been slower than normal.

Do your children get sick more often than " normal " children? Has there

been any studies linking the immune system to the syndrome? Maybe it

has nothing to do with RSS and she is just having a rough Winter, but

losing weight or at least not gaining is really so frustrating!

Thanks all!
