It is Bell's Palsy.

Well I have had some day! I went to my Dr. at 11:45, didn't get seen until 12:30. He immediately sent me to the Emergency Room, where I had my blood pressure taken, temp, a series of tests and then a CAT Scan. One good thing is I don't have any brain swelling or blood leaking anywhere, but I do have trauma-induced Bell's Palsy. I am on 4 different meds right now and told to rest and relax. That is what I am doing. They said I can go back to work on Wednesday, which kind of surprised me (I thought that was too early). I called my boss and he said don't come in on Wed. unless I feel much better. He said I know my body better than the Drs. I appreciated that. I also told him I won't be able to take alot of stress for awhile and that the guys will just have to take on some of their own work for awhile and he agreed.

On top of all this John is fighting with the insurance company because they say the never bound the comp and collision he told them to put on the car but they increased our billing to reflect the increase for comp and collision go figure! I think we will have to get John's friend who is an insurance claim attorney involved. It just never ends does it!!

I am not going to worry about anything though, I just need to get better! Hope everyone is doing fine!

Sherri, I'm glad your boss is so understanding. Stay home and try to relax with a cuppa and a book for a few days. I hope you can get the insurance issue worked out (without needing a lawyer). Sounds like you have the proof you need with the cost increase. Sending you good thoughts.

I am behind on my blog reading, so I just found out about your accident. I am so sorry that you had a wreck and now have Bell's Palsy. Praying that you will feel much better real soon. Glad you were not hurt any worse. I know that scared you to death! Rest up and take care of yourself. Love & blessings from NC!

Sherri said...

Thank you everyone! I am doing pretty good today! I have had 3 doses of prednisone and antiviral meds to help relieve the symptoms. I am going to rest and relax. I am thankful my husband is wonderful and thankful my boss is understanding. I also told my boss that when I come back (now I'm thinking Thursday not Wednesday I will not be able to deal with stress for quite some time. Thanks my friends for all your comforting words!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
