My son is almost 3 and only weighs 20 pounds! Eats like a champ

Our son is often being tested for different things because he is only 20 pounds, he has had many hospital visits because of breathing and immune issues. Every test so far has been negative, but it seems they always find something different wrong with him which brings up another test. Our pediatrician is amazing! But I'm worried about his growth.
Have any of you moms experienced this and everything is perfectly fine with you LOs? Or is there anything maybe our doctor should test him for, she is amazing with suggestions.

If he has had many hospitalizations for breathing and immune issues then he probably is not gaining weight due to his health. What does your doctor think? If he is working and burning calories to breathe and stay healthy, then he would not gain as he should.
