3-Year-Old Boy Is Put To Bed, The Next Morning He’s Paralyzed

Imagine being a parent and walking into your 3-year-old child’s room only to find him unable to move. This is what happened to parents Dillon and Stephanie, who were horrified to find that their 3-year-old son Collin was paralyzed.

He was unable to stand and could barely walk. His parents  thought that it was possible that Collin had suffered a head injury that took place at his brother’s baseball game the night before. After rushing their son to the hospital, doctors were able to confirm that Collin was not suffering a brain injury. The doctors continued to do tests as Collin’s condition worsened. He was unable to move from the neck down and was even having trouble eating and drinking.  


“My husband and I decided to have him transferred to a children’s hospital in Memphis,” Stephanie said. Collin was transferred to a different hospital, where doctors told them that if they had waited 30 more minutes, Collin would have gone into cardiac arrest. Doctors at the children’s hospital were finally able to tell Collin’s parents what the problem was. Their son had a tick.

The tick was behind Collin’s ear. Once the doctors removed it, Collin was able to move again.
