Okay, the hat and most of the bear and mustache aren't mine, but the eyepatch is. So is the pirate grimace of a smile. I'm slowly adjusting to what I hope is a temporary nasty looking face. But the online information says Bell's Palsy can last three to six months.
The worst part is eating and drinking. Talking isn't so great either. But then, either is sleeping with one eye taped shut and covered by a patch to keep the droopy eye from drying out. Okay, taking six horse pills a day ain't no piece of cake either.
Bell's Palsy is a stroke of luck though compared to what it could have been (I crack myself up).
Wish I had a hook though.
