My son got it on Jan 18, 2012. He lives an hour away from metro Atlanta. He went to the town hospital where he almost died of respiratory failure because they could not figure out what it was. He was sent to Atlanta by ambulance and was given ivig the first 5 days and is now getting 5 days of plasmaphersis. He was totally paralyzed, is on a ventilator, but now can move his mouth, head, and he can swallow again. If you’re in a small town, take her to the nearest metro area hospital. Small hospitals do not know, nor have the resources to treat it. Goodluck, it is a scary illness.
