Halloween 2012 wasn’t scary for the Saunders family of Evans, but the days that followed were.
Alexander Saunders, then age 2, was a bit lethargic when he awoke on Nov. 1, and he began running a low-grade fever.
“He was a little fussy, which was unusual for him,” said his mother, Ashley Saunders. “He couldn’t stand up on his own from a sitting or lying position.”
Alexander began to experience limited use of his left arm, and by the night of Nov. 2, he couldn’t use either arm.
