Positive thoughts and prayers please

I've not been well this week, which is why I have been around as I've been off work. I went to the doctor today and he thinks I might have glandular fever (mononucleosis)

I was really shocked and I'm still upset, I have such a busy month ahead of me and already have had to cancel several engagements, possibly a trip to Berlin, and will have to cancel an appearance at the Amsterdam Half Marathon where I would have been raising money for the Multiple Sclerosis Association.

I know there are many people worse off than me, but I'm so far away form family and friends, and I feel really lonely and quite scared. I have a blood test tomorrow then a wait for a week to get the results.

UGH! Sorry to hear about that kyles. I've had mono and its no fun. The good news is that you are in such good shape that it likely won't knock you down for very long. Get some rest and I'm saying prayers for you.

Kyles, you're going to need some help if it is mono. My friend had it and literally slept all day and night. I remember her husband trying to get soup down her for a couple of weeks. We weren't allowed in the house because it is so contagious.

Perhaps you could buy some cans of soup to have on hand so you'll have food if you are too tired to cook and get some small cans of juices and teas to keep by the bed.

Oh I'll be praying that you don't have it.

I hope you feel better soon!! My youngest had mono before. He had to be taken out of baseball for 2 weeks because of his spleen swelling. Nothing else, just baseball because if he were hit by a baseball in the stomach, it could rupture it. The spleen swelling does not happen all the time. I can't remember what it is that makes it more likely to happen to some and not others though. He was fine with everything else once he started the atibiotics. My thoughts are with you!! Just get lots of rest and drink lots of fluids.
