According to Webmd.com "Bell's palsy is a paralysis or weakness of the muscles on one side of your face. damage to the facial nerve that controls muscles on one side of the face causes that side of your face to droop. The nerve damage may also affect your sense of taste and how you make tears and saliva. This condition comes on suddenly, often overnight, and usually gets better on its own within a few weeks."

This can last a few weeks to a few months. Apparently life was going a bit to smoothly and God just had to throw us a few trails to help us grow. "The trials of this life will ultimately lead to joy if we patiently trust in God's plan and discover how to use adversity to grow stronger." ~Larry Richman~ I found that quote here if you would like to read the whole devotional given at BYU-I in 2007. Its good to know God will help you through anything. I know that this doesn't sound like a huge deal to a lot of people and compared to others trials I'd take this instead of a lot of things that could happen. I'm going to keep my head up and try to learn what I need to learn from this experience. I love the Lord and the gospel so much!
