Hello,I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long. Mononucleosis is rare to recur. But with your low immunity status; there is a very tiny chance of recurrence. So you may consider avoiding coming in contact with your grand daughter. Please feel free for your follow up questions.I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.Thanks for using Just Answer.
