Hey billy, I have a question. I'm a female, obviously, and was born without tonsils. I looked up the disease you spoke of and the site it took me to, explains that this particular immunodeficiency can only be found in males, as females are carriers. If this is true, wouldn't that mean my son could've been born with it? And shouldn't the original little girl in question be safe from that particular problem? I swear I'm not being smart, I really am curious. I tend to get throat infections, ALOT, and that's actually how I found this page... So if you can answer those for me, that'd be great!
