There is some randomness involved in the schedule, to get a better spread.

One of the reasons I dislike most programs out there, is that it seems (from reading documentation) that they consider 'days' to be the factor of when the next time of review should be. That seems kind of clunky. If I go on vacation for a week I don't want to come back to a program that decided to combine all the cards from the week I missed in one session. Instead of 'days' I would rather look at each time I open the program as 'sessions' So instead of in two days, i can wait two sessions however long that may be, whether it's two hours apart of two months. Is this a feature in Mnemosyne? (Is this a feature anywhere?)
If you've finished your scheduled reviews for the day, you get an option
to learn ahead of schedule. It's not recommended to do this too often,
Don't worry too much about catching up after a holiday, Mnemosyne will
automatically schedule the most urgent cards first.

would I expect to see this card every two days for the rest of my life
or will it add exponentially? (ex. Each comma represents a 'session':
every two days: +2, +2, +2, +2, +2 vs exponential +2, +3, +4, +5) If it
is the former how does it calculate a '5' rating?
It will go exponentially, see
It's generally considered that this algorithm is more efficient than
