Hello! Did you miss me? I am feeling good this morning...despite my half of my face still being frozen with Bell's Palsy. And why do I feel so good, you ask? Well, I finally got some sleep. The affected side of my face has been so sore that sleeping has been hard, plus my eye kept coming open and waking me up, and my nostril doesn't stay open either, so it's hard to breath normally. Be very thankful for your nerves. They are far under appreciated for the job they do. Did you know they control a muscle in your ear that dampens loud noises? Did you know that they control the taste buds that let you taste things? So anyone speaking above a whisper makes we want to punch them, and I keep eating the strongest tasting foods I can find...boy, was my husband happy to come home to ME last night!
ANYWAY, I finally decided to wear something over my eye at night to see if that helped with sleep. I asked my husband last night if he thought CVS would carry eye patches. His response was...
"Buy an eyepatch? No...I'll MAKE you one."
"Um, Ok." (Slight fear and trepidation in my stomach.)
So what did he come up with? I'll just say it involves a detachable bra strap, a nursing pad, and some band-aids. Somehow, I just knew you all would appreciate that.
But I am NOT posting pictures. I will never post pictures. Arrrrrrr....lest I make ye walk the plank!
