Exactly one week ago, I was healthy as could be. I now sit here in the airport flying back to NYC because, due to Doctors orders, I need two weeks immediate bedrest. In other words, I am sadden to report I must end my Bobby Darin contract a few days early. I have contracted a bad case of viral mono. A case so bad that I’ve been to an urgent care four times and the ER twice in the past five days. I’ve never had mono before but I can already tell you I wouldn’t wish this on anyone. I can’t eat. I can’t drink. I can’t even swallow my own salvia. I can’t even stand up and use the bathroom. The doctors at the ER could not believe I did 6 shows this past weekend under these conditions. I should be boarding the plane soon to return home—woozy from the drugs and weak from the virus. While I’m in the air though, do you have any advice? Have you ever had mono? How long did it last for you? How do you keep fluids down when you can’t even swallow and you’re nauseated constantly?
