It sounds like a TB ward at our house: the coughing, the phlegm, the complaints. I am not sure if it's TB or consumption. Either way, a doctor visit tomorrow will tell us for sure. Maybe we will have to go to a sanitorium and get saunas and massages. Or move to the country where we can relax and breathe fresh air and be healed by boredom.

One odd symptom that does not match our TB/consumption angle: Lu has an itchy butt. This seems like it might exclude one from the steam room. For the record, my butt does NOT itch.
