A Texas mother is warning parents about how a common childhood illness almost killed her son. Rachel Barker says she didn’t give it much thought when her son, Hunter, dished out a complaint she had heard before.
“He woke up Monday and was like, ‘I have a headache,’ and I was like, ‘It’s Monday, we all have headaches, no one wants to go to school!’ He had a 99.1 which was nothing,”Rachel said.
But she says Tuesday, his fever climbed to 104 and his pediatrician’s office told her it was probably a virus. By Friday, things got worse.
