WALLINGFORD — Greg Whitehouse has endured a lot in the last seven months.
The Wallingford resident contracted COVID-19 in November, just days before his 61st birthday.
While in quarantine, he discovered he also had Guillain-Barre syndrome, an illness in which the body’s immune system attacks the nerves.
It can rapidly bring on paralysis. In a matter of days, Whitehouse was paralyzed from the shoulders down.
Now, seven months later, Whitehouse is expected to make a full recovery.
He will also be one of the featured athletes this Saturday in the annual Gaylord Gauntlet on the campus of Gaylord Specialty Healthcare, where he was treated.
