Same ol' stuff different day

WOW, so much to say, so little time. Uh, no... not really. It is the same ol' crap different day! :-) Let's see... snow and ice yesterday and all night last night. So that puts us up to almost three feet of snow and ice. I love the midwest. I do. But holy mother of all things good... when is spring going to get here already?!?!? The joke is over... I cry uncle. I give in. I tap out. Whatever... just make the snow and ice go away!

I took my son to the dr yesterday to be tested for mono. He is about 25% better. He is back at school but can barely make it through the day. He is just NOT himself. This is the sickest he has ever been in his entire 14 years. So, the dr. wanted to be safe than sorry. So, he still has fevers at night but not during the day so much, still has a horrible dry raspy cough and stuffy nose, still has muscle aches and no energy, and then yesterday morning woke up with swollen glands in his neck and it hurt to even touch them. But he trudged on to school, he said he just couldn't miss anymore days. He really is a trooper. The dr. is still leaning towards a bad case of Influenza, since his spleen was normal size but wants to be sure about the mono. So in another day or so, we should know. I don't care what he has really, I just want it to go away!!!!!!!!!! I hate seeing my poor bubby sick. He is just always so resilient and healthy. It breaks my heart. And if he is complaining and wanting me to baby him, there is definitely something wrong!

The good news is, I am feeling a ton better. I mean I know it's only been 5 days of my wonder drug, but I can tell a difference in my energy level. And so far, no side effects, so that's GREAT! So there is a bright side to all this dreary.

YEA SPELL CHECKER IS FIXED!!!!!!!!!

I am so glad you are felling better. I have been thinking about you. :)
Last year my son had some nasty virus that did the same thing to him. He actually fell asleep in class one day. We had him tested for everyting under the sun (Including momo) and it ended up being a virus that just had to run its course. (and of course after a couple hundred dollars). Hope your son feels better soon!! Sick kids are no fun.

A big yea on the spell check being fixed!!!!

Ugh - I had mono once - I've never been so exhausted in my life (although that was before I had a bunch of kids - I wonder how the 2 compare, actually?). I lived from one dose of Tylenol to another.

OH MAN, Mono kicked my sister's arse! She was down and out for a long time! I hope he doesn't have it and gets to feeling better really soon!

Glad you are feeling good!
