Watch as Child Struggles to Stand After Tick Bite [VIDEO]
This is so scary, because ticks are known to drop a horse!
Every year you read stories about tick bites causing deadly brain swelling and death. Having a little girl who's finally walking, and loves to be outside, this video scares the living crap out of me because this could very well be Charlee... that's why this video and story just breaks my heart.
Amanda Lewis shared her frightening story on her Facebook page describing the whole situation, saying her daughter was "having a hard standing", and "could barely walk, or crawl and could hardly use her arms."
After taking her to the ER, their doctor eventually found the culprit: a tick was found embedded within her hair!
Thankfully, Lewis later posted an update about her daughter’s recovery, saying “she is doing much better.”
It's just scary because this sort of thing can happen to any of us if we're not careful.
