You can be sure that mangaka won't stop drawing for some common cold or something where they could work normally. There is a rumor that he suffer under pneumonia, so that can easily explain the absence. You have to consider assistents and the time pressure mangaka have to work with.

Kubo suffers from some "illness" at least once a year. It doesn't make any sense for it to just be an random occurrence when it happens this often. Sooo from what i know he is either suffering from some continuous ongoing disease or is just bedridden for the sake of being bedridden.
There is a lot of pressure yes but this job isn't the most stressful job in the world. Maybe its just that i don't actively pay attention to other people's health.

Some people have a weak immune system, I suffer under that to some degree, so some illnesses can come up rather chronic.

He does get the plus side of doing what he loves and being loved for it, right? Thats more than a lot of people can say.
a comment Hiroshi Shibashi's schedule, author of Nurarihyon no Mago:
3 hours free time in a week packed with 7 days full of work for fans who then go rage on twitter for some shitstorm because their favorite character is said to have died.
It's not his problem if you or somebody else doesn't get their dream job. Working in the industry you imagined to work as a child doesn't make it any less stressful.
I'd rather Kubo take a break if he's sick than having him croak on the job and live the rest of my life not knowing how Bleach ends.
He does get few weeks off from golden week which he doesn't have to produce a chapter that week and he has weeks off from whenever he gets "ill" so i would say thats more than enough time to get his health checked out.
And im just saying if your going to be working to make ends meet then its best that you are doing it for something you love, are loved for, and became famous for. People at least recognize his talents, thats more than a lot of other unnoticed workers can say.

Actually being a mangaka is really tiring . After reading Bakuman i started to have real respect for all the mangakas out there . They are practically living for this , that's why it's really sad fans don't appreciate this at all . I hope Kubo sensei gets better and will stop giving a damn about those types of mean comments .
Eh what? Mangaka have their fair share of love and sex or else Oda or Kishimoto wouldn't have children already...
It's not about getting checked out in a hospital... you don't cure a serious illness within a day, even worse if it's one you can't protect yourself from or one that comes back damnin you to some bigger treatment.
P.S.: Weeks? More like a week. Also is there a need to put the ill in ""? There is no need to feign illness, when he could just as well say that it's for research.

Kubo is sick so of course he won't work until he gets better. Schabrak explained that Kubo was sick, not in need of getting laid.
Its may be easy sometimes to get your health checked out, but that doesn't mean your sickness automatically goes away.
Also guess what? Golden week only happens during the end of April and beginning of May.
What was the point of the last bit of your post?
Even if Kubo wasn't sick, he fully deserves any and every break he gets, because week after week, we have Bleach to read.
And I'm willing to bet a lot of us don't pay for Weekly Shonen Jump, so.......
