This is not meant to substitute for advise directly from a health care
professional, but I would like to remind everyone of the resource of the
www when it comes to learning about such things. There are many reputable
public health pages to glean from.
Earlier this spring I did a web search on mono because my quite talented
soccer-player daughter was concerned at the beginning of this season when a
team mate had mono & daughter definitely did not want to miss Sr. season as
captain of the team, not only because her one hour a week goes to soccer
<vbg>, but further impressing college coaches is also on her mind. What I
found was very enlightening, including the fact that those who have been
active athlethes & in good condidtion recover faster! Go figure :-)
Everybody is different tho & maladies are not static things, so you need to
be assured from the physician treating him, that this young man is on
schedule for your Philmont crew. However, from what I have learned, his
complete recovery in a short period of time is entirely possible.
