Sad confession: During high school I tried out for the school musical. Not knowing any songs to sing for my audition, I grabbed the only sheet music I could find in my house that I knew: You're Not Alone by Michael McLean. Oh man, no words.
Needless to say, didn't make the cut. If only they could hear me now.
If you could SEE me now, you would think my face is still pretty messed up. But I believe my facial paralysis is really turning the corner. I can turn the corner of my mouth up ever-so-slightly and my left eyebrow does raise, timidly. Pretty exciting stuff.
And I did get what I consider some positive news from the neurologist's office yesterday, but I think I ought to refrain from announcing it until I get a confirmation from the cardiologist next week. I am hopeful. It feels good to have a direction, especially before the New Year.
Speaking of 2010, I am not one for New Year resolutions, but I have decided to be more grateful next year. Every day I plan on posting THREE things for which I am grateful... starting tomorrow. Care to join me?
