Ok, this getting to be....

The right side of my face has gone numb.  So off to Emergency I went, just in case I was having a stroke.  After a CT Scan and other tests the conclusion is that I have Bells Palsy.  It's a herpes virus that infects the nerves by the face and causes numbness and usually sagging.  Great, won't that be nice if my face on the right side starts sagging.  Luckily it clears itself up in about 1 to 3 months.  At least it isn't a stroke.  Tomorrow is my PET Scan for my lungs and will I be glad when that is over.  Ah life, it's full of adventure isn't it?

Well, till we meet again,

Susan (aka) Alice

Sweet Susan! I do hope this thing goes away fast! And that your test tomorrow comes clean and with the bestest results!

Sometimes life scares us silly, doesn't it? It's like someone is "rattling the bars of our cages" in order to make us remember how good it was before... you know what I mean?

Things will be OK, and you will dance happy and grateful!! And I will dance from a distance, celebrating with you!
Love ya!

Oh honey, I am so sorry. A lady I work with had a spell of bells palsy and it was gone in about a week and has not returned. Best of luck, my friend.
