Lindale boy still battling West Nile Meningitis

Posted: Updated:

Twelve-year-old Wade Gamblin has been in a coma at Children's  Medical Center in Dallas since November 13.

Wade's family says they recently learned Wade could be paralyzed from his neck down.

Doctors told the family once the virus is out of his system there is a chance the swelling around his spine will decrease and the paralysis will go away.

The family says Wade is semi-responsive and is opening his eyes.

They say doctors have no timeline for Wade's recovery.

A donation account is set up for Wade Gamblin at First Convenience Banks all over East Texas.
