Can I Get a Whoop Whoop?

I’m sending special thoughts and prayers to a friend of mine, whose daughter is in the hospital suffering from Pertussis (commonly known as Whooping Cough). Yes, the kiddo has been immunized, but apparently there is a vicious strain going around that is, um, immune to the immunization. There is nothing in the world more heartwrenching than having to suit up in gloves, mask, and gown to visit a sick three-year-old who can’t leave her hospital room because she’s quarantined.
If you have little ones, and you live in the DFW area, be extra careful. Wash your hands often, and be on the lookout for a cough that doesn’t get better. Even if you’ve had the shot, you (and your kids) are still at risk. The best part? It can last for weeks, or even months.

    That freaks me out. I just went to – they have audio and video. I almost cried. I pray my baby doesn’t get it. How helpless your friend must feel right now. I’ll certainly say a prayer for them tonight.

    It’s pretty bad. Little Bit feels fine one minute, and the next, she can’t get her breath and she turns purple. It happened today while I was there, and all I wanted to do was hug her, which they wouldn’t let me do because of the contamination risk. The good news is that she now has her very own Cabbage Patch Kid with “yellow hair and a purple dress” to keep her company.

    This is terrible. I shall pray for her and her family.
