Peggy! Call your doctor asap. I am so sorry! I am sure this is temporary but still, you need to hear that from your doctor. Please keep us posted.

Oh my goodness, I'm sorry you're having to deal with this. What does your ps say? It sounds like the numbness is still normal at this point.

I hope you're able to close your eye and feel the right side of your face soon!
