Have you ever had mono?

Well I didn't have mono but I had something similar that knocked me on my back just like mono. Its called CMV and its a viral infection in the liver rather than the spleen like mono. It started with a high fever and head ache (probably from the fever). General lab tests showed ssomething not quite right with liver. Specific lab test showed it was not anything more serious (all the different hepitits(es) were eliminated (thank goodness). This is just one of those viral things that many people get and they get it so mild that they don't even know they've had it. But not me...oh no. I've been running a steadily decreasing fever for over 6 weeks. I barely did anything...if I started watching a TV show, I'd fall asleep in the middle and the same with reading. I don't think I ever slept so much. Dan was amazed that I could sleep so much during the day and still sleep at night.


I'm finally starting to feel like myself. I've been reading blogs through Google Reader-my son put Flipboard on my iPod touch which was wonderful-it gave me access to news, blogs, etc. without trying to sit up at the computer or even my netbook.


Now I'm even going to start basting another applique block...Yeah!

My daughter had mono in 5th grade and it took us a month to get it diagnosed. This year, a brother of one of my 8th graders was on home-bound, had his appendix out, test after test until they finally determined it was mono.

Hope you are feeling better soon!
