....I go back to sleep
At 730ish AM my phone rings and scares me again. Its Nikki saying she's staying with Kel cause her face is worse, I tell her I'm on my way and call my brother. He is a paramedic and I always use his knowledge to my advantage..... He says it sounds like Bells Palsy and get her to dr before it gets worse.
So I get Kel to ER and it was the shortest time I have ever spent in the ER at our hospital. They call her to get her vitals and as soon as they hear what's wrong she's put in a wheelchair and taken to trauma and hooked up to heart monitor. I was scared but kept my composure but she cried....broke my heart that she was so scared. Within minutes the dr comes in and ask if she knows what's wrong with her and Kel laughs and says no. (Her attitude through this has been wonderful. She can't move the left side of her face, her eye won't close right, nothing taste good and she keeps calling herself crooked) I tell him we think bells palsy and he says we are right. So she gets some mega steroids and has to take 3200mg a day of another med. It can take up to 6 weeks for her to heal and it might get worse before it gets better....which it has. Her eye won't close now and her vision is blurred. We were in and out within an hour.
She's 24 but she's my baby, please keep her in your prayers.
