  • Mom warns parents of tick dangers after daughter left paralyzed

A mother in MS is warning parents after her 5-year-old daughter's close call after a tick bite.

The mother said she noticed the tick when she went to brush Kailyn's hair and shared a photo of the red mark on her scalp to Facebook. "She would try to stand and walk but would continue to fall so I thought her legs were just asleep". Following a CT scan and blood tests, doctors diagnosed Kailyn with tick paralysis. Griffin said her daughter woke up unable to walk or speak. "PLEASE for the love of god check your kids for ticks", she posted. Kailyn woke up and couldn't walk! "It's more common in children than it is adults", she wrote last Wednesday.

The foundation reports that tick paralysis in humans is rare and typically occurs in children 10 years old or younger. Prayers for this baby! "She has been such a champ throughout this whole ordeal".

News reports said two women who appeared to be in their twenties were also wounded but their injuries were not life-threatening. The suspected attacker told police that he had attacked the passengers, according to Odawara police official Satoshi Oiye.

Griffin had a warning for other parents, and included photos of where the tick bit Kailyn on her head, as well as a photo of the pest itself. The condition can become life-threatening if the tick is not removed quickly, with the potential for paralysis to affect respiratory muscles.

Griffin's initial post garnered more than 371,000 shares and 96,000 likes.

As tick paralysis usually disappears in 24 hours, Griffin posted later that Kailyn was back to her normal self.
