I'm getting nervous because today I woke up with a sore throat and pretty bad headache...which were my mom's first symptoms before it turned out she had CMV. She's still struggling with it, after 3 weeks of being sick. Basically, what it is is, there are two types of Mono. Most people get EBV mono (Epstein-Barr Virus). But some people are unlucky enough to get CMV mono (Cyclomegalo virus) CMV is the worse kind, and my mom has been feeling awful for going on 4 weeks now. Please, please please don't let me have that. If I get sick with anything contagious, I won't be able to volunteer at A.I. duPont Children's Hospital, and that would ruin my summer. Please let it just be allergies!
