Some of you may be wondering what ever happened to the Pirate Mama role I was playing after Alex was born. (You may remember that I was stricken with Bell's Palsy two days after I delivered Alex.) Unfortunately the Bell's is still hanging around. Hence the reason I have not posted tons of pictures of myself on the blog. Smiling with half your face is kinda weird! I am happy to report, though, that it seems to be improving. Several people in the last week have commented that they see real improvement. I'm encouraged.
It's not exactly a treasure map with tons of gold at the end, but it is a relief from the "poop deck" of postpartum recovery issues. I'm hoping to give up my Pirate status soon.
I guess I could look on the bright side - at least I'm not dealing with a hook for a hand!
