    My other half has not been well for about a month now. A week ago the doctor told him it looked like Lymphoma (a form of cancer) and was setting an appointment for a biopsy. Today he had another run of bloodwork. And it turned out to be Mono, thank you God. So of course, I had to have blood work. I got Mono for Christmas *haha*

    May you count your blessings and overlook your woes.

    Merry Christmas Everyone!
  2. How blessed you must feel. What a fabulous holiday gift! *whew!* (altho mono is no easy trip!)

    Merry to ya! Your story makes me feel grateful for that thing we take for granted: health.

    I've given mono as a gift before.



    Also have the common cold, the flu, and flesh eating bacteria. Thinking about getting herpes . Looks like a fried egg.

    Comparatively speaking, Mono is a walk in the park.
    (Been there, done that)

    Congrats that it wasn't cancer. [​IMG]

    Done both, mono was way more fun to get (the kissing disease [​IMG]) and way easier to recover from.
