Wonder Woman Mom Surprises Family After Guillan-Barre Recovery

A bodybuilding and fitness champion temporarily paralyzed and fighting for life due to a rare autoimmune disorder finally returns home surprising her family dressed as Wonder Woman. Debra Rosado-Bohac, from Virginia, USA, became an IFBB Pro in 2016 at the North American Championship where she won her class in the Figure Division and won the overall. She continued to compete in IFBB Pro competitions all over the U.S. as recently as 2020, but on December 27, during a routine workout, felt a shooting pain in her right leg. Despite trying to walk it off, when she attempted the exercise a second time the pain shot down her leg again, and so to prevent injury Debra cut the workout short and went home. But later that evening she began feeling her feet fall asleep and by the time she went to bed that evening she couldn’t fully walk - prompting husband Luke to rush her to ER. After initially being diagnosed with a pinched sciatic nerve, Debra was given medication and sent home but after a few days passed and she started losing mobility in more limbs Luke took her to a different ER where she was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome. Guillain-Barré syndrome is a rare disorder in which the immune system attacks nerves - usually with weakness and tingling in the extremities as the first symptoms, which quickly spreads and can eventually lead to complete paralysis of the body.
