Coping with the Loss of Health: How My Son Survived Guillain-Barre Syndrome and Encephalitis

loss

Without health, you have nothing. When you are healthy, you feel like you can accomplish anything. You have focus, energy, and drive. In contrast, when you are ill, you feel like you are functioning through quicksand and it takes everything in you to keep your head above the mud.

Before October of 2015, my son, Jy, was a healthy child. He was seven-years-old at the time. He had never even received antibiotics. He had perfect attendance in school. He played on a very competitive club soccer team. He was used to scoring many goals and being one of the fastest kids on the field.

Loss of Health

Jy Black encephallitis, Guillain Barre Syndrome
11-12-2015 Flight to Primary Children’s Hospital Salt Lake City

In October of 2015, my son had received the flu mist, and he developed a bad reaction to it. I had mentioned this situation in a previous post. I also wrote a heartfelt post on losing the image of a “perfect child.” He developed the flu, went into a coma (for about three weeks), and was paralyzed (quadriplegic). He had encephalitis and Guillain-Barre Syndrome. The flu mist has been taken off the market (so don’t stress about that), and he had a rare reaction.

Life After Loss of Health

Jy had to learn how to eat, walk, talk, and go to the bathroom all over again. When Jy first got home from the hospital, I was so happy to have him alive. I was in complete denial that anything was wrong with him. After all, he was walking, talking, eating, and breathing again. What more could I want?

I posted an update on Jy about six months after his hospitalization. With time, I learned that he struggled to sit still in school. He had trouble with his emotions and understanding jokes. Processing became difficult for him. He couldn’t react on the soccer field like he used to. He would fall over or get hurt easily. When Jy couldn’t understand something, instead of using his words, Jy would resort to crying. Kids called him cry baby. He would come home from school almost every single day in tears. He couldn’t sit to do homework. I had to give him mental breaks. We would work for ten minutes at a time, and I would let him run around the house to release his energy. Sometimes, he would just cry. I let him cry, and talked him through his emotions.

He didn’t like loud noises and had sensory perception issues. He developed ADHD, visual processing disorder, and auditory processing disorder. When Jy would get nervous, he would fidget with his fingers, chew on objects, or suck his shirt until half of the front was wet. He wouldn’t understand danger at times. Once, he hopped on the back of a running treadmill to get this lady’s attention because he thought she was me. He didn’t think to walk to the side and get her attention or even check if she was me. He scraped his chin and got a bloody nose from this incident.

Jy’s reading level dropped from about the 65% to the 10% for his age group. He went from almost double above average in math to average because he struggled to process story problems.

Jy needed over a year and a half of extensive traditional therapy, counseling (for his emotions), ADHD medication, other medication for his mood, and finally holistic medication, which he is still currently on. He started special education in January 2017 to help with his reading and processing.

How Does Jy Relate to You?

During Jy’s recovery, there came a point where I had to “wake up” and face reality or the truth. Jy may recover to the point where he won’t need special education assistance in school or play soccer the way he used to, but he is not there yet. I had to mourn over the loss of my child before his health injury. I couldn’t keep living in the past and pretending that he was his “normal” self. Jy wasn’t abnormal after his injury. I had to accept Jy’s new health so that we could rise up from there.

If you have a loved one or you have personally had a health problem (including mental) that has altered your lifestyle, then you can relate to this post. Here are a few steps that helped me get past the loss of Jy’s “healthy” self.

  1. Grieve. I tried for the longest to “be strong.” I thought being strong meant that I didn’t have to show emotions. This is far from the truth. Everyone has emotions. We aren’t robots and can’t turn them on and off. I allowed myself to feel every emotion that came to me. I had every right. My perfectly healthy child landed in a coma and paralyzed. You have every right to all of your emotions. You need to free them. 
  2. Get professional help. Once Jy got past the acute phase, I turned to any resource that I could for him (e.g., utilized his pediatrician, therapist, school teacher, and church teacher). My opinion on Jy was important, but it was also slightly biased because he was my son. I wanted to see all the good in him, so I looked for it. Taking the opinion of several people who worked in close contact with Jy, helped me get the necessary resources for him. If multiple people who worked with Jy indicated he needed something, he probably did. Get several opinions on the best resources for you. It’s best to not be in denial if you need help. Seeking the proper help could help you recover faster. 
  3. Plan/Act. Once I collected the evaluations of those who worked with Jy and studied the available resources for him, I came up with a plan. I didn’t want Jy to have too much on his plate, so we did therapy in a systematic fashion. We began with traditional therapy first and worked our way to holistic and psychological. Decide the best plan for you or your loved one and take the needed steps. You can always alter your plan along the way. (But you are always moving forward!)
  4. Reflect. There are times when I get frustrated or sad when Jy can’t read or play soccer as he used or his emotions are difficult to control. On days that are tough, I remind myself to reflect on how far Jy has come. Give yourself credit for how far you or your loved one has come. Have gratitude for your current health and look forward to getting better one step at a time.

We don’t get to choose our trials, but we can choose how we react to them. ❤️ Time to live YOUR best life with the health you have been blessed with.

  1. This really got to me. I can imagine how you must have felt. I felt horrible and devastated when my best friend was in a coma for almost two weeks with slim chances of surviving. So, I’m assuming it was worse in your case because it was your son.
    This is a truly touching piece. Everything heals with time. God bless you and your family.

    1. Jainey, It was VERY scary. The worst part is not knowing if the person is going to wake up or how he will wake up. Sorry to hear about your best friend! I hope she is okay. I didn’t read your post yet. Getting to it! Not sure if you wrote on that. Yes, it takes time to heal. God has given me a second chance with Jy, and I take advantage of it each day. He is a precious child! Thank you! Love all of you guys. So glad we connected! I know I have your support, Dynamite!!! ❤️​

    My best and powerful wishes is for you all.

    My cousin, used to have illness when I was way young, I have vivid memory of his illness. I don’t know what was his illness, but it was he was healthy and all of a sudden he was bed ridden.

    Long story short, he recovered, and now living a healthy life got married.

    So I pray the same for Jy

  8. Health, even at its rudest robustness, is such a fragile element. Far too often, we take our good health for granted. And then, suddenly, it can be snatched away from us in an instant. In many cases, I think, an illness in the family takes a toll on the entire family. It’s at times like these, when we’re tested, that we really discover what we’re made of. You’ve clearly proven to yourself, and others, that you’re incredibly strong, brave, and compassionate. Your family is lucky to have you. Thank you for sharing this story. It couldn’t have been easy.

I mean, to passing through such an experience is something I pray never to find myself in. However, encountering someone that has triumphantly overcome such tragedy is simply a sight to behold. I must say, I am absolutely impressed at how you keep it together throughout the storms of life. And even more impressed at how you pull off a good displaying of yourself with that captivating smile that lights your readers’ day. I admire your strength, Ipuna. Remain blessed.

It’s really incredible how well you handled it; you’re definitely one of my role models. I hope Jy will have a speedy recovery. ❤

  11. Ipuna, your piece is very moving, and I found a great deal of excellent advice here. That it’s important not to suppress your feelings, and give yourself permission to grieve, is a must…yet it’s very hard to do, because we’re socialized from early on to suppress our emotions. (Even those of us who don’t “take” to the socialization know that’s the norm in Western society, IMO.)

    I really hope that Jy will continue to get better. (I don’t know what else to say, other than that.)

    Do take care, Ipuna.

    People around d the world are so busy cursing their fate and messing up incredible lives. Yes, it’s so important to express emotions. Hiding emotions is never a solution to any problem.

At the same time, it’s hard being a parent and be an objective health care provider. 😃 You have a sweet spirit. I can definitely tell. I’m sure your experiences have and will reach many.

        O my Father—O Father of mine? It is such comfort to live under Your loving control and dominion. Earlier this morning, while I was in the middle of a sentence, I spotted a big roach. It went under my bed! Panic! I loathe those varmints! I stopped writing. I lifted my mattress. I saw nothing. Went back to my writing. After a few minutes, the varmint showed up again! I grabbed a shoe, but! I missed. The varmint went into hiding again. Where is it now, my Father?

        O my Father—O Father of mine? You know all about my fears. I fear a roach infestation in my lovely apartment. I called Ahmad, but I did not get any answer. Then? It came to me: “Father? You are the only one who can control these varmints. There is not much that Ahmad can do, but! You can keep this roach from infesting this lovely apartment You have gifted to me. I thank You for taking control of this matter.”

        New title for thia-basilia.com: Insanity Abolished! Subtitle: Restored. Physically, Mentally, Spiritually.

        Head Line: The Plan Of Restoration To The Original Intent For Our Creation has begun in ONE. It shall continue One by One.

        Hello everybody! This is the most appropriate day to post a summary of my health restoration. Yeah, I talk about myself primarily, why? Because I am the product the Almighty Creator of our beings is offering to you all! How ‘bout that?

        Health restoration? Mine took every bit of 32 long years. Some of you were not even born when the Almighty started the arduous task to restore my health. No kidding! I pay attention to the meaning of numbers and number combinations because the Scriptures are specific with the mention of numbers for everything written therein.

        So, the combine number of 32 is, 3+2=5. The Number Five – Grace and Preparation. Now, this year I am walking on my 78th birthday. The combine number of 78 is, 7+8=15=3×5. That means 78 is Grace and Preparation multiplied 3 times! Wow! But! The Number Seven, Completeness and Rest. The Number Eight – Newness and Cycles.

        All means:

        Grace and Preparation
        Completeness and Rest
        Newness and Cycles
        Alright, let’s keep that in mind for this summary. Because that is the sequence of events in the process to restore my health physically, mentally, and spiritually. In retrospect, I see now how the physical, the mental, and the spiritual were not restored separately. Rather it was a progressive series of events that took place for my complete restoration.

        These series of events were precisely scheduled by the Master Mind Who created me. Dear Reader, relax. I will now abide by the rules of human attraction and attention span. I will only give you a lil at the time.

  21. Thanks my friend. Likewise. I just had a couple hours session with my daughter. It’s a delight to see the work of our Father in our lives. Truly amazing how He is healing our wounds. He puts our tears in a bottle and uses them to water the gardens of our lives in His Presence. Much love. thiaBasilia. 🙂
