Valley Fever/ lung nodule 12 yr old daughter

Has anyone had any experience with Valley Fever in their child? My now 12 yr old daughter had pnuemonia in November of 2011. Due to the hives she was covered in, the ER tested her for VF . The first Valley Fever test was negative. After an x ray in December showed a nodule in her right lung they tested her again for VF and this time it was positive. Docs said that is normal with VF and that they would continue to xray her to follow the nodule but that it should calcify and not grow larger. She has since had 2 more x rays. With each it has grown "slightly larger and more dense". We are now going to be going to an infectious disease doc and back to the pulmonologist. She is very healthy and active otherwise. Has been on inhalers and still has trouble with activity she never would have otherwise. I am of course worried and wondering if anyone has had a similar experience. Thanks
