Deeeeeep breath. I came home and did a LOT of research on mono and came to the realization things weren't as bad as I thought. It's really rare, 10%, for kids to get the symptoms of mono. Lucky Ava! We just need to give her advil for the sore throat and then just keep her rested. She amazes me with her sweet spirit and great attitude. We will do our best to get her well as soon as possible. Our goal is weeks not months!
On our way home from the doctor....I even offered to stop and get her ice-cream! Nope, she just wanted to go to bed. Poor girl.
While we were at the doctor's office....sweet little brother left her a note on the school board.
