After the allergy test, we met with the doctor again. He told us to immediately stop all medication. The pills, the 7 different inhalers that he was currently on, and the breathing machine. In his opinion, Brian did not have asthma.
We could remain at the clinic and go to the scheduled appointments the balance of the week....but he did not feel it necessary. With everything that we had been thru and everything that Brian had been thru...we packed our bags and headed for home.
We could not have been more thankful for this doctor and for The Mayo Clinic. We were very hopeful and very scared. He concluded that over the past couple of years, the many doctors and specialists, that Brian was being over-medicated. He never did want to see any of Brian's medical records. He did not want to be influenced by the past couple of years and the fact that Brian slowly got worse, not better.
So we started our journey home....
