So remember when I said that I was feeling way tired even though I was getting plenty of sleep? Well today my body reached an all-time low (I fell asleep in class, I had to use the elevator because I lacked the energy to walk up the stairs, etc.), so I decided to go to the doctor. They did some tests, but it was close to their closing time, so the doctor told me not to worry about waiting for the results and he would just call me if something came back positive/negative (depending on the test). Daniel made chicken/ham/cheese paninis and mac n cheese for dinner and we were on our way to Iron Man 2 when I got a phone call. It was the doctor with my tests results. The good news is that I'm not pregnant (I knew I wasn't, but it was a nice conformation). The bad news is that I have mono. Awesome. I scheduled a follow-up appointment and was advised to avoid contact sports and pace myself, since there really is no medication or anything. Apparently the spleen can sometimes swell during mono (or other immune system attacks), and since the spleen filters your blood, it's a good idea to take it easy so you don't mess anything up.

So now I get to balance school/work while my body fights against it. Yay. Daniel's so good at taking care of me though, and I hate to burden him with my lack of energy, but the more I rest now the faster I can get better and get back to being the domestic diva I am ;-)

Oh, and Iron Man 2 was sold out, so we bought tickets for a showing tomorrow afternoon. We'll maybe go to the mall later, but other than that I'd really like to spend some time in bed just relaxing. We watched Fantastic Mr. Fox this evening, it was kind of silly/weird, but George Clooney is amazing, so it was worth watching. I've also decided Jason Schwartzman is very good at playing angst-y characters.



  1. Mono... bummer. I know what you mean though about feeling bad for being so tired. I keep trying to tell myself it's ok that I am so tired because of the baby, but I still feel sorry for burdening David. Well, let us know if we can help out with anything. Mono can be a beast.

  2. Aw, girly I hope you're doing alright! I've known a couple people who have had mono and I heard it's rough stuff. Keep your chin up.
    P.s. I TOTALLY thought you were going to say you were pregnant!
