 I know some of us have lost our children to Pertussis and some of us haven't. Of course the ones who unfortunately lost their children obviously deal with grief. How is the quality of life after Pertussis whose children survived?My son didn't make it so we are left to rebuild our "new" life. We were told that if he survived he would have many medical related problems among other things such as physical therapy. Many of the problems would have been from all the medical interventions that he had. So what are the things you have to deal with after Pertussis?
