Re: Mono / Ebv for the second time -really bad! Anyone else have it more than once?

My youngest son had both strains of mono within 6 weeks of each other when he was a senior in high school and he thought he was going to die. He was so miserable that it was heartbreaking. His blood work came back fine the first two times we had him tested. He was so sick but everything kept coming back clean. We finally ended up at an infectious disease doctor and he ran detailed blood work. Came back positive for both strains of mono. He told us to take him home and dump him in bed. Said to let him sleep til he woke up. Let him go back to school when he felt he could. Well, he slept for four days straight. But he had been battling this for 6 weeks. He missed another week. Then started back at half days for a two week period. It was the roughest period he had had in a long time.....
