first class back

wow. don't have much time so I'll keep it brief.

Manny was born via c section. his umbilical cord was tied in a true knot. when the cord knot cinched, thankfully my hobby saw the heartrate drop and flagged someone down, we were in the operating room in 10 minutes. Hubby may very well have saved the baby's life. I also came down with bells palsy before the birth and still half of my face is not moving. this is supposedly temporary.

so it was not the birth I imagined and recovery has been slower than I have liked. Still I made it to class today. Manny is four weeks old. Class was challenging and I won't get into it except to say I feel better than I have in ages. I am so grateful for my practice.

Anna! So glad your baby is safe and healthy!
Can you close your eye on the paralyzed half? How long has it been?

Hi Lacey,

It has been since May 10. And no I can't close my eye more than halfway on my left side. It's one of the worst parts of bells palsy for sure. Have to use eye drops and constantly manually blink it too.
