I spent a couple of hours at the ER today

I may write about it in detail when I feel better. This was pretty scary to me because I do not go to the doctor very often. In fact it's been nearly 7 years since I last went to a doctor. Long story short, I thought I was having a stroke, but what I actually have is a condition known as Bells Palsy. For all intents and purposes, I have no muscle control over the right side of my face, coupled with a sore jaw and a dull ache behind my ear. The doctor thinks I will recover in a few days. My weekend plans are in a tailspin right now, but hey, it could have been a lot worse. I was afraid it was something a lot worse.

Suffice to say I've had the living sh~t scared out of me.
