Yes. I have to say, I don't really see the point of telling these strange stories to someone who is really agonizing over a potential, real, serious problem. To the OP: Sending much luck your way.
My DH and I are both student parents, and our youngest is around your Tristan's age. We're a bit older and have been doing this for a few years, so I hope you'd welcome some advice.
