What a week just stupid roller coaster emotional ride. So I was home with the kids last week and the wife went out with her sisters and girlfriends for dinner evening. On her way home shes driving and goes totally numb on her left side. As she is driving shes talking to me on the phone and losing all feeling and motor control. I had our eldist daughter watch the younger ones and I met her at the hospital.
They admit her right away into emergency and start checking her out running tests etc. By this time she has no motor control on her left side. They do cat scan its ok, wait for hours on end for a specialist to come by he thinks its something called Bell's palsy.
I have never heard of it before but just a flat out scary situation we thought maybe a stroke. She got into get a mri a couple days later and that came back good. So the verdict is Bell's palsy she is on meds now, but between work, kids, school, pre school dance, gymnastics cooking cleaning nursing the wife I need some sleep.
Anyway have anyone heard of Bell's palsy? Delt with it or know anyone that has? I had never heard of it ever till now. Done some reading up on it but seems like not much is known about it.
