For whom the Bell's Palsy tolls

Honestly, I don't know what Momma would do without me.

First she got sick three times this summer - including a possible case of pneumonia.

Her latest medical misadventure?

Two days in the hospital with Bell's Palsy and high blood sugar.


Bell's palsy is a form of facial paralysis resulting from a dysfunction of the facial cranial nerve VII causing an inability to control facial muscles on the left side. 

Named after Scottish anatomist Sir Charles Bell in 1821, he described the trajectory of the facial nerve and Bell's Palsy.

I'm starting to think I'll never get out of this nursing outfit.
