This week was so awful. My son was supposed start school on Monday but Sunday I get a call from his dad that he is at the Dr. and isn't feeling well. That was an understatement.
I got my son home on Sunday afternoon and by the evening we were in the ER. He was so sick!! He ended up seeing three Drs and getting three different diagnosis.
One said acute tonsillitis, one said strep throat and one said Mono.
Unfortunately, the mono turned out to be the right one. My son has been so sick all week and I have been with him non stop. There are no meds to take except some Motrin. His throat and glands in his neck are so swollen he hasn't been able to eat all week.
It's a week now, and he is starting to feel just a tiny bit better. He still can't go to school, not sure when he will go back. He is very upset he is missing the beginning of his senior year in High School.
He needs to get better because my heart is breaking for him and I need him to get better because I'm exhausted and need a break!!
