MONO...(take 3)

Like clockwork, we've been struck with mono THREE TIMES!  Bubby is (hopefully) the last to get it and he was hit hard.  Thankfully most of his down time was during his vacation.  His lymph nodes were SO swollen that we had to make a visit to the ER for some IV hydration, steroids and pain meds.  He dropped from 190lbs to 168lbs over the course of three weeks.  His spleen is so big you can visibly see it when he lifts his shirt.  He didn't get to play in one lacrosse game and will be out for the rest of the season.


  1. poor kid. hope he is feeling better.

  2. Wow, you can see the glands in his neck all swollen. Poor Bubby. He does look sick, too. How the heck do these kids get mono? Stevie was so sick with it this winter and now Bubby. Hope he feels better soon and that he gets lots of rest--that's what he'll need to recoup.
