Just in case anyone else got sick with a really deep persistent cough in La Manz this winter, I came down with it the end of February --- pretty sure I picked it up in La Manz --- and I'm still getting over it. My doctor says it is probably Whooping Cough (Pertussis). The adult symptoms are milder than that of infants. But it's still NO FUN! |
People might want to get the pertussis booster before they come back down --- we're the culprits in spreading it to infants, who can't be immunized and don't have any immunities yet.
NPR had a story yesterday about a whooping cough outbreak in Washington State going on right now and there's plenty online about the symptoms and treatment.
Just thought I'd share the info (and not the germ!).
