Please note the links at the bottom of this post. A lot of progress has been made since Maggie’s experience of paralysis and respiratory failure which led to her intubation and ultimately diagnosis of Guillain-Barre Syndrome on May 27, 2018. We are thankful for continual support, but please also take a moment to educate yourself on Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), it’s symptoms and effects.
Maggie was diagnosed with mononucleosis on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 after having a sore throat and feeling numbness and tingling in her hands and feet for the past week. On Sunday, May 27, she was also diagnosed with Guillain-Barré Syndrome, a neurological disorder associated with viral infections in which the immune system attacks the nervous system. She is currently being treated for GBS in Austin, Texas, and we are hopeful that our vibrant, loving, and hilarious Maggie will make a full recovery!
