My poor Lauren has Mononucleosis. Her pediatrician says her left tonsil is a marvel. He is calling it Exudative Tonsillitis (Lauren's actually looks much worse than the pic in this link). We were very close to going to the emergency room as her left tonsil had almost completely blocked her airway.

Strep was negative. Which is good and bad... treatment for strep would have been easier and faster!

A course of steroids and antibiotics (which tastes awful) to stave off a secondary bacterial infection in the tonsils.

She is absolutely loving the popsicles and sherbet. Had a little chicken noodle soup and that went down ok.

And thank goodness she slept last night for the first time in 3 night.
