I feel lucky
It's been almost 2 years and I feel so fortunate for whatever movement I have in my face (I feel I am doing pretty darn good) and extremely lucky to be able to blink my eye. The doctors wanted to put a gold weight in my eyelid to help me blink but I wanted to wait. What a struggle to blink - it took allot of conscious thought and focus to get the lid to move and finally after 5 months it did. I am starting to get my smile back, don't drool as much, my eye lashes are going up again, I don't have pain in my face - I feel very lucky. At this point if you met me you might not even know that much is wrong.
