The Cough of 100 Days

Despite being vaccinated, it looks like N has whooping cough. It's a strange thing. A dozen or so violent coughing bouts per day, sometimes ending in vomiting, with calm periods in between when you'd think nothing was wrong with her. Apparently it affects 48.5 million people a year and kills around 100,000!  The coughing is sometimes so violent that it breaks ribs or brings on a hernia. In China they call it The Cough of a Hundred Days. Roll on March...
