My daughter (15) came down with mono a little less than two weeks ago. She was out of school all last week and she was miserable. She started feeling a lot better today and even went to church with us and everything. She says she wants to try going back to school tomorrow, but I'm not sure if that's a good idea.
She hasn't had a fever for days now, but she still has a sore throat and periodically complains of headaches and chills (but she hasn't said anything about them today). The swelling in her lymph nodes finally went down and she's getting her appetite back, but she still looks really pale and is obviously still very weak and very fatigued. She says she thinks she's well enough for school though.
I think I'm going to hold off sending her tomorrow, but my real question is, how am I supposed to know when she's ready? I don't want her to miss anymore school than she needs to, but I don't want her to rush the recovery either. Any thoughts? I'm taking all the advice I can get!
