I would still not rule out the possibility of a poisoning, in addition to the mold... if it were me I would have a through tox screen and heavy metals test done.

I am getting to the point right now. I discovered that a toxic exposure can induce an autistic like state, that can be reversed.
A little about autism (also called leaky gut syndrome) all of his stomach aliments fit. Too complicated for me to explain here, just google 'leaky gut syndrome'.
He goes to Dr. is placed on antibiotics and then a steroid. He gets worse they do more pulmonary meds and then another round of steroids.
Well the steroids throws his body into an immune nightmare!!
Hence, you now have neuropsychological symptoms Autistic state and paralysis...
So now the Dr.'s have to determine is the autistic state coming from immune over-response or mycotoxin or both...

Keep us updated as you get news. And let the family know that there's a bunch of strangers (REALLY strange) rooting for them!
BTW, have screens been done on the entire family? Adults can survive stuff that will knock a kid out.

You mentioned something in the first or second post about the adults in the family having "flu-like" symptoms as well. This really leads me to believe that there is an environmental component here. Children often are affected much more strongly by toxins (molds, pesticides) than adults are. Can you tell us a bit more about the adult's symptoms?
Mom is suspicious of the farm (and has been for the better part of a year) that the boys get symptomatic when they are there – allergy like symptoms – coughing, major eye swelling, to the point of closing in the AM, irritability, fatigue.
THESE DRY COUGH THROAT CLOSING EPISODES HAVE SENT US TO THE E.R. TWICE AND THE DOC GAVE US A PRESCRIPTION FOR STEROIDS THE THOUGHT WAS WE USE A SINGLE DOSE WHEN THE EPISODE HAPPENS AND WE STAY OUT OF E.R. WE HAVE REALIZED LATELY THAT WE HAVE BEEN DOING THIS AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH FOR AT LEAST 7-8 MONTHS.
