FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Jordon Conner has spent the last few days in a wheelchair. The teen was re-admitted to Cook Children’s hospital Wednesday after she felt serious pain in her right leg.

It would normally not be something to be alarmed about, but in August, Conner spent more than a week at Cook Children’s hospital recovering from one of the rarest forms of the West Nile virus. “I couldn’t bend my leg at all. If I bent it, it just felt like someone cutting me, stabbing me,” she said from the hospital.

In the weeks following her diagnosis of West Nile Meningoencephalitis, Conner spent much of her time trying to regain her strength at home and through physical therapy.

But this week, along with severe leg pain, the teen’s mother, Ebonie Conner, said that her daughter has also suffered from weakness and short term memory loss. “I’m trying to have a good attitude and be grateful, but I’m more terrified this time than last,” Ebonie Conner said.

Doctors plan to perform more tests to see what is causing her symptoms, but Ebonie Conner fears the West Nile virus may be to blame. “This is a continuation of West Nile Meningoencephalitis,” she said. “My hope for my daughter is that her health is restored.”
