So we went to the doctor this morning after the 17yo endured a weekend of fatigue, sore throat, swollen glands.. you know where I'm going with this, but there's a twist!
Mono AND strep throat. And she's in softball (it's her senior year), their district is weak so they should be able to take it... but she plays left field and they DO NOT have a backup for her position. We lucked out with a district game today that was cancelled
due to her illness, reported to the school at our request as soon as we got the diagnosis to give them a head's up the "threatening weather," but who knows where we go from here.
We spent allllllllllll day at the clinic, then in an outpatient hospital room getting her pumped up with IV fluids, antibiotics and steroids for the swollen throat and glands. Poor baby.
