On Monday morning (3/25), I woke Kylee up to get her ready for school....just like any other morning. We had breakfast together, she got dressed, and as I was doing her hair in the mirror she noticed that half of her face wasn't working. She said to me..."Mom, this side of my face won't smile!" I immediately went back to facebook where a friend of mine had posted a picture of herself 2 years ago when she had Bells Palsy. I mentally saw that picture in my mind as I saw Kylee's face and knew instantly that this could be Bells Palsy. I couldn't remember what it was called at the time so I called my sister in law Becky and she confirmed what I feared. I wasn't too worried though because I knew my friend had bounced back 100% and I did some research and found that the recovery rate is extremely good. So I still wasn't panicked and called my doctor's office for a visit to see where we go from here.
(I just couldn't help myself...I had to go through and post some of my most favorite smiling pictures of my girl! I miss her smile so much already and it's only been 2 days since it's been missing)
