I'm a bit worried.
I know normal but...
Riley has seventh nerve palsy meaning he doesn't have the nerve or muscles on the right side of his face.
He smiles wonky.
Cries with one eye closed.
Can't drink out of a carton or can.
Can do a brilliant one eyebrow raise.
It's an elective surgery, better when they are younger though.
Tomorrow he will have a nerve taken from his foot and placed somehow in face.
Next time he will have a muscle from his chest put in.
I ummed and arred over the surgery.
Couldn't make up my mind until I spoke to a friend who had experienced bells palsy.
He said his girlfriend had a difficult time kissing him as he dribbled.
I can't have Riley dribbling on girls.
Then whilst on holiday Rachel was teaching the boys how to whistle.
Connor can now whistle.
Riley cant :(
So I made the right decision I will have a dribble free kissing and whistling boy after the surgeries.
He who loves the sea so much will swim whatever the weather and in whatever he is wearing!
He never poses for a photo sensibly!
and never has a cold head at night!
ps: had a great holiday, the weather was gorgeous, three full days on the beach, no sewing I was to busy building sand castles!
