tubercolosis

We lived together with a young lady for the past few months and she''s been diagnosed with tubercolosis. She spend alot of time for my 3 year old grandchild. We did the skin test and a xray of the lungs. Both were negative and must be done in 8 weeks again.The doctors want to take some liquid out of his stomach to test aswell. Should this be done?
