questions about my 7 year old

Hi,

My son is scheduled for a sodium chloride test next Monday. He's been sick with a nasty wet cough that doesn't really respond to any meds for almost six months. He's had lots of sinus and ear infections as well as pretty bad spring allergies.

I thought that children were usually diagnosed with CF as babies. Is it possible to have CF and not know about it until a child is seven years old?

We lost a child due to a congenital heart defect 10 years ago, so we're just sick over the possiblity of our little guy having CF.
