How would we know if The Grunter has mono?
He’s been tired and listless for years.
He goes at one speed.
Like father, like son. No truer words have been spoken.
Happy and relieved to report that his blood test from Monday’s doctor appointment came back normal.
I had flashbacks of days with toddlers and sleepless nights, after he woke me up at 3:00 am and 5:30 am Wednesday night/Thursday morning with Scary Baby joining me in bed at 5:45 am.
I’m way too old for this.
Please remember that he is TWENTY years old.
The Grunter told me his throat was swelling shut and he could barely swallow. He and Scary Baby share the “drama gene” so I did what I do best. In my most caring nurse’s voice I said:
“Sip water from a straw and go back to bed and we’ll call the doctor when they open.”
Side note: When he was 3 years old, he fell out of his bed in the middle of the night and hit his head on his dresser. In the dark, we told him to go back to bed. In the morning we discovered he had a huge goose egg on his forehead. Please don’t call DFACS, I’m pretty sure the statute of limitations has run out. The guilt has not.
After a re-evaluation appointment, it seems he does have a raging case of tonsilitis and they are almost touching. Total heebie jeebies.
A new antibiotic and a steroid shot in his rear we think he’s on the upswing.
Praying for sleep for all of us this weekend! Have a good one…
