Well, it has been awhile, but life has been good and kept busy with work and school. I will graduate Ashford University online August 2011 with my B.A. in Business Administration.
September was time for my yearly MRI scans and praise God, they were stable for another year. Two months later, I emailing my doctors back. My face was going weak. So they, put me on a Medrol Pack, but it didn't help and I thought well, ok- as long as I have a grin, I am ok. I woke up yesterday (11.22.10) to a frozen left face! I was like wth?! I emailed my doc as soon as I got to work and he made the order for another Medrol pack. If this does not work, I have to go in for a facial emg to find out what in the world the nerve is up to! GOOD NEWS! it is NOT a tumor! Inflammation of the nerve most likely, but will it damage it more? I never know. The bottom corner is jerking a little, so that is a good sign. I just have to take it one day at the time and pray it heals so I don't have to have more surgery or get on Avastin yet! We are still going to have the Avastin talk if I have to go down to see them.
So i pray to God for the meds to work! At the same time, I thank Him for my wonderful mom and friends who love me just the way I am. I guess when I got my beautiful smile back in full force a few years ago- I smiled to much! lol It will be back- just give it time.
