Or is this story being told from beyond the grave? From Bonnie, an adoring mother with a slight tingle that travels from her foot to her right hand...then becomes completely paralyzed on the right side of her body within five days to Shannon, a college student with the flu whose fever spikes to 104 causing her to black out and her doctors discover an unheard of condition.
