Daughter was sick with ‘regular’ flu, then mother finds her daughter’s body on the couch

Typically, happy 15-year-old Morgan Larance from Fort Worth, Texas would wake up one morning feeling bad. The teenager went to school but had to go to the nurse when she felt sick.

The school nurse checked Larance’s blood pressure and noted her fever. Larance called her mother, Jennifer Kimbro, to pick her up from school.

Unfortunately, her fever got worse. When the girl’s temperature surpassed 104 degrees a few hours later, Kimbro took Larance to the emergency room as a precaution. The hospital tested her and told her she had the flu.

Larance felt much better and went to a pre-scheduled appointment with the doctor two days later. The teenager had to be checked regularly because of an inflamed esophagus. Nothing unusual was found during the inspection. Kimbro decided to keep Larance at home for another day.

Kimbro thought everything was fine and went to work. But then the teenager didn’t answer the phone when she tried to call to check on her. Kimbro rushed home to find her daughter lying lifeless on the sofa.

She lay unconscious in the hospital for nine days before reappearing. Larance has been diagnosed with a rare neurological condition called acute necrotizing encephalopathy. It can be triggered in people with severe cases of flu.

The ANE led to the formation of lesions that injured Larance’s brainstem and spinal cord.
Her rehab and recovery has been slow so far, but there are signs of improvement. Larance squeezes her mother’s hand and has made a few speech sounds. She still cannot move, but doctors say the encephalopathy seems to be fading.

Deputy Principal and Director of Athletics at Larance’s school, Jason Briles, remarked in an interview with local media:
“The hardest thing is not seeing her smiling face. She was life in every conversation. There was never a dull moment around her. It’s hard for the kids.”
