Last month we found out that one of Ralph's niece is sick. She has this disease called mono.This was my first time ever hearing about that disease.I looked it up on the net and this is what i found out about it:

Mono or Mononucleosis
is a an infectious disease caused by Epstein-Barr virus . Mono or "the kissing disease" can easily be spread through saliva,by sharing drinks food and utensils. Common among teens from 15-35 yrs of age

Signs of Mono
These are just the common sign : fever, headaches, sore throat, white patches on the back of your throat, fatigue, depression and not wanting to eat.

Drinking plenty of liquids and juice rich in vitamin c.
plenty of rest
lozenges for sore throat or gargling with warm salt water

As far as i have read Mono or the Kissing disease is not a life threatening one as long as the person infected by the disease takes plenty of rest and drinks lots of liquid. I must admit i haven't really gone onto an in dept research about Mono but i was just curious about the disease as it was my first time to hear about it. Ill do more readings and research about this and ill update on what i have learned.
