A mother in MS is warning parents after her 5-year-old daughter's close call after a tick bite.

Jessica Griffin shared photos of her daughter, Kailyn, and the tick found on her head on Facebook.

Doctors reassured Griffin that once the tick was removed from her daughter, Kailyn would be back to her usual self.

Kailyn had a CT scan and bloodwork at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, where doctors diagnosed her with tick paralysis, The Washington Post reported. PLEASE for the love of god check your kids for ticks!

Kate Middleton could be out of public eye until October
However, several people on Twitter have shared their outrage as one of the toys Prince George was playing with was a toy gun. Kate Middleton may have access to a wardrobe full of designer duds, but she loves a good bargain as much as the rest of us.

The post, which received over 107,000 reactions and 414,000 shares, was followed by a photo of Kailyn walking out of the hospital with "Get Well" balloons.

In Canada, tick paralysis is most commonly caused by the Rocky Mountain wood tick, with most cases in south-central B.C., he said.

Mom at first thought that maybe Kailyn had slept in an awkward position and her legs had gone numb, according to a Facebook post. This was brought on through a tick bite. Scary is [an] UNDERSTATEMENT! It's more common in children than it is adults!

The American Lyme Disease Foundation states that it takes five to seven days for a person to develop tick paralysis symptoms. Paralysis sets in slowly, starting in the legs and spreading into upper body, stopping your breathing if left unchecked. Girls often have longer hair than boys, which ticks can attach to and hide in, increasing the risk of tick paralysis, the report said. We are being admitted to the hospital for observation and we're hoping her balance gets straightened out!

In Canada, tick species that can cause paralysis are found mostly in Southern British Columbia and Manitoba, but other species, like known Lyme-disease carriers blacklegged ticks, are aggressively expanding into new territory, even urban areas. The disease usually starts with fatigue and muscle pains.

And last year, Amanda Lewis woke up and found that her 3-year-old daughter, Evelyn, couldn't stand no matter how hard the little girl tried, according to the La Grande Observer. "Kailyn woke up and couldn't walk!" However, symptoms typically improve within 24 hours of removing the tick.
