Today is day nine of my Bell's Palsy.  And, yes, I STILL have it.  I just knew I'd be done with this thing by now.  I mean, come on.  Okay, joke's on me.  Hardy har freakin' har.  Let's move on.


I still cannot close my eye by itself.  Cannot BLINK it at all.  It just stays open ALLLLL day unless I reach up there with my finger and manually close it.  Which I do.  A lot.  Together with my left eye, though, it will close.  I'm still having tingling and some feelings that I can only describe as "buzzing".  It doesn't make the sound, of course, but it feels like the sound makes. Make sense??  Like a vibration.  That HAS to mean some nerves are waking up, right??

I WAS able to blow out a candle today, though.  First puff!!  

My eye is very tired tonight.  I guess I strained it too much today.  So I'll leave you with zee baked ziti I made for supper tonight.

Five cheeses (provolone, ricotta, parmesan, cheddar and romano), fresh spinach, portabella mushrooms, marinara sauce, veggie burger crumbles, garlic powder, salt, pepper.

Oh yeah.  


  1. Dang, that looks awesome! Send me the recipe. Yep, I know the "buzzing" you speak of. It's a good sign!! Patience, grasshopper!

  2. That looks sooooooooooooooooo good. mmmmmm

  3. No recipe! I just threw all that stuff together with a cooked box of ziti.
    I used a whole jar of plain marinara and a handful of fresh spinach that I had in the fridge. I chopped it up in my chopper. The shredded cheeses were individual bags and the mushrooms were fresh. The veggie burger crumbles were frozen. You could use ground beef instead. I guess a pound or half a pound. Garlic powder, salt and pepper on top. Bake 20 minutes at 350. Voila!

  4. hey, food looks awesome
    hope you feel better soon
