      Not sure if any of you have ever had this, but I did when I was a teen. It is a really shitty (Pardon my french) virus that can render you so effing tired, soar throat, fever, aches and pains and these symptoms can last 2-4 weeks, but you feel tired for weeks to months. Now the actual virus can be contagious up to 18 months!!! Oh and here is the best part, once you get it you always have it, so the virus might pop up from time to time and infect someone else, however, he probably won't have symptoms.

      So we ae't sure where he got it from because he could have been infected 2 months ago and is just now seeing symptoms. He could have even got it from me, because I carry the virus!

      So now that he has it, my three year old might have been infected because she gives him kisses. I am thinking my older girls won't because they don't give him kisses, but they may have shared drinks so who knows what the heck is going to happen here in the next few weeks!! I'm so bummed!!

        Awww, Mandy that SUCKS!!!!!! So far none of my kid's have had that. I've never had it either. However, my brother had it years back, shorty after my Mom died. I had to take him in to find out what was wrong w/him. It was horrible:(

        Hope your little guy is feeling better soon!! xo

                oh Mandy! How awful. I'm so sorry sweetie. WTH~ there's probably no way at this point that you can even protect everyone else. Are you going to have to have the talk with him? LOL I'm sorry, I'm just trying to put a smile on your face. I wish I lived closer so I could help.

                    His fever hit 103.9 so at the ER they gave him a shot of penicillin. So far the fever hasn't retued.

                          I got it in college. It was bad. Poor little guy. I hope he doesn't end up sharing it!

                            It's so weird that he got it. It must have been a total fluke thing

                              I was under the impression that little kids weren't affected so drastically with mono??? Guess that's wrong! My dd had it in junior high. I thought she just wanted to stay home from school….but she had such a bad case it affected her spleen. She had to go half-time to school the spring semester of 8th grade. She'd got to moing classes one day, and afteoon classes the next. She's 28 and still has recurrences…. Hugs to you and him…..rest, rest, rest!!!
