Mono = Glandular Fever

November 6, 2006

Tomorrow I get birthday presents and blood test results. I'm sick at the moment, have been for more than a few days. Today I had blood taken out, which is being tested for glandular fever.

I told an American friend of mine (in Phoenix), and he said "What's that?" Turns out that it's what Americans call 'mono'. I never knew that! I knew there was a thing that Americans called mono, but I didn't know it was glandular fever.

I'm not sure whether the news would be good or not. I guess it depends on what they can do about it.

Looking at the wikipedia site, I don't have the fever which it says tends to occur. But I do have the swollen glands, and fatigue. My throat isn't great either, and 3 out of 4 ain't bad. Or ain't good, whichever way you want to look at it.

So I've been resting. Only doing a bit of work… wishing I had wireless at home, and wondering how the user-group meeting this Thursday is going to go. If you're going to be in Adelaide, you should come along…
