It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

MORE on Sean

So I've been sitting here pounding my brain, thinking.

Sean was exposed to mono several times by his cousin just a few weeks ago.

Looking over the symptoms:

* Fatigue
* Weakness
* Sore throat, perhaps a strep throat that doesn't get better with antibiotics
* Fever
* Swollen lymph nodes in your neck and armpits
* Swollen tonsils
* Headache
* Skin rash
* Loss of appetite
* Soft, swollen spleen
* Night sweats

He's got the: fatigue, weakness, just got over strep but still mentions now and then a tenderness there, headache, loss of appetite, and while I don't know if he has night sweats, he has been complaining that their bedroom is too hot (with the air conditioner on!)

I haven't thought to check the tonsils or the lymph nodes. But he's got a lot of the symptoms.

I called the school to ask how they handle mono these days should that be the case. We were going to bring him to the urgent care clinic tonight and get a screening.

The school secretary told me about a local doctor who does not accept insurance and charges only $35 for an office visit, including the vast majority of tests! So I made an appointment for tomorrow morning for that.

And we shall see.
