|Christine and her daughter|
Christine is a 52 year old lady admitted this week. While we see many interesting cases her's is more unusual than most.
4 months ago a banana tree fell and hit her in the head causing complete paralysis. After spending 1 week in the hospital the family took her to a Traditional Doctor. Over the last 4 months she slowly regained movement, first in the arms and then in the legs. She began walking with assistance just a few days before coming in.
She came to the hospital because of persistent shock like paraesthesias shooting from the base of her neck into her arms and legs. Her x-rays suggest a fracture of T-1(just below the neck). I have begun a seizure medication which will hopefully reduce her pains.
