Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

In your question you mention that you had an "invalid" test result and never tested again. Was it invalid or was it negative? If it was negative then that is your answer.

If the result you had was invalid, then I would like you to go in for a test as soon as you can. I understand that this is a scary situation, but you need to know your status. You need to do it for your son, and for yourself.

If your test comes back positive you will need to take your son in for testing as well. Please keep me updated on the status of your situation.

When you submit an update, you can put "An update on my situation, per your request". Good luck.

In health,
