    Morning all. (this isn't really chicken related)
    So, last Tuesday I was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy. They don't know what really causes Bell's Palsy, but people who have had flu/pneumonia/under a lot of stress tend to get it more easily than those who haven't. Well, I've had the flu earlier this year, pneumonia twice and just recovered from the last bout of it two weeks ago, and now Bell's Palsy. It's where one side of the face is temporarily paralyzed due to the nerve being inflamed or restricted. The pain is so horrible and the doctors don't know when it will heal. I have to be patient. They have me on steroids, but I've already been on steroids 4 times this year from the previous ailments so I've gained so much weight from those things! Anyhow, I'm supposed to keep myself "de-stressed" as it helps the inflammation go down in the nerve receptors. But, how does that happen when you're in constant pain and can barely, eat, drink, and cannot blink? Even through it all, I have The Lord, my dear husband, my sweet daughter, my friends, and my chicken children! Going and sitting on one of the tree stumps in the run is so relaxing feeding the girls and snuggling with the few who like to snuggle. Anyhow, prayers are appreciated. Patience is a virtue!

    On a funny note: earlier today I opened up a program and the icon said, "Add Folders"...I thought it said, "Add Feathers." First thought in my head, "YES! I'll take more fuzzy butts..." Until I realized I was at work and it was the program I use on a daily basis. LOL.

    [​IMG] Prayers are going up from Rosenberg! As long as you have God, DH, and your chickens you will be fine. Those chickens are certainly a de-stressor!!

    I think my faverolle hen is going broody! Haha. She was sitting in the nest box on one egg that was not hers and she had laid an egg in another box. Put the other two eggs I had under her and when I went to close the coop at night she was still on them! I need to get some fertile eggs =)
