Turns out Sophie has croup, which she apparently caught from her mother. I’m in the process of developing symptoms as well, so my availability for work for the next few days may be questionable. We’ll see how it goes. If the community is lucky (and I’m not), my worst days will come over the weekend, which would limit how long I’m away from work.

If there’s anything developer documentation related that you have some kind of rush on, please let me know and I’ll try to hustle it through today or tomorrow before I feel like doing nothing but sleeping.

I suppose there’s a chance that this is just my allergies getting worse (it’s that time of year, you know). However, I think it’s incredibly unlikely that I’ll miss catching this thing.

  1. Hope you feel better soon. (I haven’t heard of croup in quite some time- gotta read up on wikipedia.)

  2. Still not entirely sure I’m coming down with it myself or not. The symptoms early on are so much like the allergies I normally have this time of year I won’t know for sure until it gets really bad. :)

    Kind of weird — I thought croup was one of those things they vaccinate against, but apparently it’s really just a cold that infects the larynx, causing swelling that makes breathing difficult.

  3. I thought almost everyone is immunized against croup? Well, maybe only the kids are ;-)

  4. I thought that too, but I think I was thinking of whooping cough (pertussis).
