What a week!!!

Sunday, September 15, 2013

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!!

    I FEEL HIS PAIN! I had it, too & it HURT EVERY TIME I SWALLOWED! IMAGINE HOW MANY TIMES YOU "SWALLOW" EVERY DAY! I HOPE HE ISN'T GOING THRU' THAT & HE WILL FEEL BETTER SOON!
    Isn't it IRONIC? When you really WANT TO GO TO SCHOOL, YOU CAN'T!!!!

    I FEEL "YOUR" PAIN, TOO! It can't be easy taking care of a sick child.
    PRAYERS are sent for BOTH OF YOU.

    He's in for a long recovery. Don't rush it! You do not want him to have a relapse once he starts to get better.
