Mono is a virus, so there isn't much to do other than to keep him/her hydrated and try to make him/her eat. If he/she loses a significant amount of weight and is not eating/drinking, then yes, take him/her to the emergency room. Though 4 pounds isn't that much. Otherwise just have him/her rest, and try to get over this virus.  Hope he/she feels better soon.
