Four-year-old's mother says it wasn't clear that her daughter would survive the flu

(FOX NEWS) — A four-year-old Iowa girl who lost her vision while battling the flu can see again.

Jade Delucia’s parents were, at one point, worried their daughter wouldn’t survive.

It started around Christmas.

They thought Jade had a cold.

Mom and dad rushed her to an emergency room.

She was then life-flighted to the University of Iowa children’s hospital.

A doctor there says Jade had Influenza B and she had developed Acute Necrotizing Encephalopathy.

Doctors will continue to monitor Jade’s development.
