Yesterday evening I really frightened Olivier—and myself. I started to cough and couldn’t inhale. Fortunately he thumped me on the back which helped me to stop. This happened three times throughout the evening. I’m still alive and no problems through the night or this morning.
For a short while I did wonder if I had whooping cough. My little brother had whooping cough when he was about three months old. He caught it before he was old enough to be vaccinated.
