Further Down the Rabbit Hole

Now the doctor thinks I might have Bell's Palsy on top of everything. Oh gosh, I think I just peed myself! Sanctuary! Sanctuary!

Yes, while my head was still grotesquely swollen from bee stings, I woke up to my right eye drooping half-way down my face like a stroke victim.

Seriously, you’re not going to make me walk with her in public, are you?

At my follow up eye appointment I had to discuss with the doctor whether or not I had had a stroke. That’s always fun. The doctor suggested my condition might be Bell’s Palsy. I had disregarded that thought initially because the symptoms weren’t constant. I guess they don’t have to be.

Hey guys, I'll be trying my new sleep goggles tonight. By the way,could someone help me to bed?

My mom took pity on me and my homemade eye aids and got me a pair of sleep goggles. They are supposed to create a seal to protect your eyes from air and to lock in moisture. Unfortunately I am not a adult-sized human so they are too large to fit inside of my orbital bones, and they gap. They do block out the light nicely.

Both Bell’s Palsy and logopthalmos (sleeping with your eyes open) have to do with damage to a nerve. Out of curiosity I googled whether chiropractics might help Bell’s Palsy, and the answer was yes. The doctor said that Bell’s Palsy usually only lasts a year or two, but if I could shorten that, I would be happy. Happy enough to cry? We’ll see. (Ha ha)

Toby doesn’t care about my eye situation – unless I step on him when they covered. He prefers to concentrate on his “Sexy Parties”. (Note how one of Toby’s may female admirers is giving him a kiss at this get together.)

Puppy Party!

Toby is the only boy on our walks, and he loves the attention of so many ladies.

  1. In light of all these trials, afflictions and tribulations, maybe you should re-name your studio. House of Job, I’m thinking. Catchy, huh? Motto: “we get the Job done.” I was going to recommend Revelations Studio or even The Four Horsemen but no, Job is better. He took a licking and kept on ticking, much like Toby at the dog park. :snorf:

  2. Aw. 😦 I’m so sorry to hear this. 😦 Seems “when it rains, it pours”. 😦

    I’m hoping all of this clears up for you soon soon soon! Is there an anti-inflammatory shot or med they can give you for the Bell’s Palsy ???

    Sexy parties! Wootwoo and Wowza! Toby has all the fun! 😉 😀 I shall live vicariously through Toby! Ha! 😀

    Please keep us updated on how you are doing.
    Hang in there!
    (((HUGS))) and gentle PATS and RUBS!!! from me and Coops!
