Just one week later, Brandon was unable to move his legs to get out of bed.
"What did you think?" asked Diaz.
Another suspected case of Acute Flaccid Myelitis is being reviewed in the Pittsburgh area. Brandon needed a wheelchair to get around, a hard situation for a then-6-year-old.
The symptoms include sudden arm and leg weakness, loss of muscle tone and reflexes, facial droop or weakness, drooping eyelids and difficulty swallowing or slurred speech.
At the hospital, they were told about Dr Amy Moore, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon in St Louis, Missouri.
That is until the family got into contact with a surgeon in St Louis, Missouri, who said she could attach healthy nerves in Brandon's legs to his damaged nerves to restore movement.
Brandon would receive what doctors say is a first-of-its-kind surgery that allowed him to walk again.
At the hospital, they were told about Dr Amy Moore, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon in St Louis, Missouri, who says she is the only doctor in the USA who performs nerve transfers on children's lower extremities.
The number of measles cases in the United States so far this year has surpassed 2017 with the potential for about a quarter of the highly contagious respiratory infections to be occurring in one New York county north of New York City.
The nerve transfer surgery on Brandon was 14 months ago. According to Dr. Moore, children typically respond best to this type of surgery because their nerves grow back more quickly. "It's been unbelievable", he said. "Thanks to Ms. Dr. Moore, I can go outside, play with my brothers", said Brandon. During Friday's check-up, Brandon said now he only uses his wheelchair to play basketball.

Since the end of October, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been monitoring hundreds of cases of acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) - a polio-like disease that mostly affects children.
"To date, no pathogen (germ) has been consistently detected in the patients' spinal fluid; a pathogen detected in the spinal fluid would be good evidence to indicate the cause of AFM since this condition affects the spinal cord".
The CDC is continuing to look for ways to share information about AFM with healthcare officials nationwide in an effort to properly diagnose and treat children. This is eight more confirmed cases than the agency reported last week and 20 additional patients under investigation.
During a recent interview for "CBS This Morning", CDC director Dr. Robert Redfield told co-host John Dickerson he was calling for a special task force to investigate AFM. "It doesn't appear to be transmissible from human to human". "I'm basing that on what we've seen in other years".
While the CDC tries to pinpoint the cause, Dr. Moore is working to help those affected.
