No, Really, You Must Be Joking

It turns out that GH was exposed to whooping cough and that might be what's been causing him all of this congested angst. Because he's been on antibiotics for almost a week, there is no way to test him for it, but the symptoms fit and his doctors think that's probably what he had/has. I called our pediatrician, who says that the babies are protected by their immunizations. So far, I seem to have escaped, but I'm on high alert for any possible signs.

Whooping cough, jeez. It sounds so 1920s. Next thing you know, we'll have mumps. Actually, scratch that: GH had the mumps last year. What's next? Rubella followed by swarms of locusts?
