    On Friday October 20, Larry Joe played football for Whitewright High School. Larry Joe was happy, healthy and full of life. Saturday morning he came down with flu-like symptoms which progressed to extreme illness caused possibly by toxic shock and/or some unidentified autoimmune response. A few weeks ago, Larry experienced sudden lung failure and was placed on heart-lung life support under sedation. There have been many, many complications and ups and downs for this sweet, sweet family. Larry Joe had a successful surgery yesterday to remove 2 liters of blood from his chest cavity. They also inserted tubes to allow the fluid to drain. They do not yet have a definitive diagnosis of his illness.
    A comment on another Facebook page about this case said she hoped adrenal crisis was being considered. She was a survivor of this herself.

    GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. ? A north Texas high school student is in the ICU fighting the flu.

    Larry Donaldson caught the flu back in October. In November, he was placed on life support as his condition deteriorated.

    Donaldson is a sophomore, honor student and varsity football player at Whitewright High School.

    Parents of other students were shocked to hear the news...
