Just spend the evening in the hospital.
I noticed at 5:30 pm local time that the left eye of my 5 year old daughter Cayleigh didn't close when she blinked her eyes and that the left side of her mouth didn't moved like the other side did. That spooked me and after a quick bite for dinner the three of us left to the hospital. They checked her eyes, ears and the strenght of her bite on both sides and diagnosed her with Bell's palsy. An acute facial nerve paralysis.
Wow, that shocked us! They gave us medications and we have to protect her eye for becoming dry with an ointment(? don't know if this is the right word in english). The doctor will call us tomorrow to ask how she's doing and we have to come back tuesday 19th. Don't know how long it will take for her to recover. I have read on internet that it can take from several weeks to months. And that about 85% recovers completely, so lets hope this will count for her too.
Debbie, I will be praying for her for a complete recovery. My brother had this few years ago, he had it because of so much stress at work, but he full recovered in a month.
How scary this must be for you! Prayers for your daughter & family during this difficult time. May she make a full recovery very soon!
