@akaheisenberg – I don’t think it should be ruled out yet. There is no harm in asking them to consider it. Adults can give it to children- adults’ immunity wears off- their illness may not be so dramatic. That’s why nowadays grandparents are asked to get booster shots.

Okay so now we have some updated info, and I forgot to mention that she has also started developing crossed eyes about 2 weeks ago. We saw a neurologist this morning. He was very concerned that all of this happened after getting a viral respiratory infection, since she was perfectly healthy prior to our illness in October 2019. He immediately suggested ADEM as a possible cause. We are scheduling a MRI and also DNA testing while she's sedated for the MRI. Depending on the MRI we may need to do a lumbar puncture also. Still waiting for the ENT in December.
