Sharyl, i haven't gotten that far--we will immunize them and let them interact, I think, but it's been less than 24 hours since diagnosis and we're still reeling. I have to talk to the vet, still,and we may try to keep them separate until the IRV? IRA? results come back, or even until after re-testing. As Sally said to Jenny, though, there's already been exposure, so I'm tempted to just immunize and mix.
