Mom Paralyzed Three Weeks After Giving Birth Due To A Rare Disease. Her Journey Is Remarkable!





When one has mapped out his/her entire life and every thing seems to be going according to plan, that person may say that life is great. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and most of the time, we get that sudden bump in life when things start to become perfect.

Take Holly Gerlach for example. She met the love of her life, got engaged, got married and gave birth to a healthy baby girl by the time she was 26. Her personal life appeared to be flawless. But less than three weeks after she delivered to her daughter, Casey, she was diagnosed to have a rare autoimmune disease called Guillain-Barre syndrome. Within 72 hours, she went from active to paralyzed and suddenly could not breathe on her own.

She was admitted in the ICU for months being taken cared of by nurses and hospital staff while her newborn daughter stayed at home and can only visit the hospital at certain periods. Despite Holly’s poor condition, she never gave up. She was subsequently transferred to a regular ward and slowly made quality progress in her condition. Little by little, she did health care interventions to the best of her ability and after a few more months, she was finally discharged from the hospital.

Watch her journey in this video. It might be long but hey, it sure is worth watching until the end.
