Advice for parent of college age student with Mono
Does anyone have any advice for a parent whose kid has mononucleosis? My daughter, who is in her 3rd year at an out of state university, just found out she has mono. She had been feeling extremely tired and was having a tough time, although she wasn't sure if it was due to having, on top of regular classes, 30 hours per week of clinical observation for her major (athletic training). She is freaking out because, although the doctor said she could continue taking classes and clinical observation, the program director wants to drop her from the clinical rotations. She is also worried she might have to repeat classes because her grades had slipped when the demands of the clinical hours affected her study time especially when she had started feeling so low energy from being sick. She's already on the "5-year college track" because didn't decide on her major her first year and then applied to the 3-year program in her second year of college. I am curious to know if anyone else has had a son or daughter that has had this happen and how they/you managed it. Did they come home, take a semester off, end up graduating late, etc.
