    I hear it is Devildeac to VT and willing to flap like a bird. But it appears he is getting a good asking price.

    Slightly less emphatic sigghhhhhh today.

    But NOW what am I going to do?

    Besides all the boring "life" stuff and the "enjoying friends and family" baloney. I want my Duke Basketball! I want it back!
    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    Not sure which is worse -- that I have never heard of Nipsey Hussle, or that his fans have never heard of Nipsey Russell.

    Probably time to tell his fans to get off our lawns.

    And, I need to be better about cleaning my ears. I kept hearing Nipsey Russell when they said Nipsey Hussle.

    We got word the other day that one of the young Turks was feeling lowdown and bad, so he pops into the urgent care place, who ships him right over to the ER for a diagnosis of mono. He gets sent home with instructions of rest, tylenol, and fluids. This is our first exposure in the immediate family, so no one knows what to expect. I know the boy is in bad shape because I volunteered Mrs. Turk to whip up a batch of chocolate chip cookies and fedex a shoebox-full over to him (after I perform the obligatory quality control checks, of course), and he replied not to bother because he didn't feel like eating anything.

    Interwebz says nothing to do except take it easy and ride it out, but that 2 to 4 week estimated recovery is a big wide window of time and it makes me nervous. He's a handsome sturdy strapping athletic lad, so I would expect him to bounce back sooner than most, but you always hear these crazy outlier stories...

    Wishing a speedy recovery to the young Turk, and ease of mind to Turk Nation.

    Never fun when kids get sick, no matter their age.

    I had mono a million years ago in college. It stuck with me for quite awhile. Was a rough semester.

    Best of luck.

    Had mono my freshman year at Duke. It took me 6 months to recover. It's really hard with strapping youths, but the key is NOT to push it. He won't feel well for a long while. He will probably feel better after 2-4 weeks, but he should take it easy for at least another month and listen to his body. If he's getting tired easy, rest. Pushing it will not help and might make it worse. Easier said than done but still true.

    Hoping young Turk recovers quickly.

    A friend's adult son was sick as a dog over Christmas holiday. She asked my internist husband to check him out on Christmas Eve as a favor and the young lawyer turned out to have raging mono. When he returned to NY his big time specialist doctor was impressed that a country bumpkin Dx was correct. Sheesh.

    Anyway, it takes a long time and young Turk does need to eat well and try and take naps when he can. He can't get discouraged since,yes, it can take 6-12 months to feel normal.
    Best wishes to the youngster!

    Didn't we have a player with mono several years ago? Dunleavy maybe?

    Found out Mrs. Turk's sister had mono in college. "How long did it take before you were back to normal?" "About a decade or so." "I didn't need to hear that..."
