Random Bell’s Palsy Side Effect for Nathan

Nathan cries when he eats now. It’s not because he doesn’t like the food 🙂 I guess it is relatively common as the nerves re-grow to get some wiring that is mixed up. Somehow his salivary gland is triggering his eye to water. I bet you didn’t expect that! So, if you’re with Nathan while […]

Nathan’s Chiro Appointment and Other Things

Nathan had his chiropractor appointment this evening. It was just a preliminary visit. They did x-rays. He will go back on Monday to go over what they saw. Nathan is also considering getting tested for Lyme Disease as well. Because of the way it presented in January, Nathan didn’t really consider getting that test, but […]

109 Days. That’s how long it has been since Nathan has been able to use the left side of his face. Please keep praying for healing. The doctors have nothing to suggest. Just wait and see. Tomorrow, Nathan has an appointment with a chiropractor. We’re hoping that he is able to offer some help/hope.

This is not a sunshine and rainbows post

Nathan is home today. He’s in pain because of using muscles differently and his ear hurts. He gets to see a primary care doctor tomorrow to follow up the ER visit. Nathan is discouraged and depressed. I feel helpless. It’s so hard not to know if we should be hunkering down for 3-6 months or […]
