well, not great news...

what a week it's been. i may be somewhat sparse for the next week or so, because The Son has MONO, and it's apparently a particularly bad case, according to the doctor. he's on a steroid for his throat because it's swollen nearly shut and he hasn't been able to swallow or eat ANYthing for a week, and he's barely able to take any fluids. i'm just glad he didn't end up in the emergency room with a feeding tube due to dehydration. he seems to have a BIT more tolerance for liquids, so that's progress, but i swear it took him four full days to finish even a small bottle of water.

needless to say, it's been frustrating around here, trying to tell a 17-year-old that he's not ALLOWED to go anywhere. i'm disappointed because we should be at Tilly's tonight buying the new Travis Barker CD so we can get him in for a meet and greet on the 26th. i wonder if i'll be able to buy it over the phone...
