I saw it myself just yesterday.
The left eyebrow moved up and down with the right. I see eyes narrowing in. Becoming more like each other. I see that smile opening up to more. . . more teeth, more creasing in the face. . . It’s coming. I can see it.
I just know it.
It’s coming back to the way it’s always been.
and we hold our breath
It was only Tuesday we were told when a person has facial nerve paralysis like this. . . often the face stays in a dorment state and
and then surgery can be an answer for some.
We were told when there is a break in the temporal bone – nerves can be severed.
and severed nerves are never good.
I see it coming back on it’s own
slowly, slowly it’s coming back on it’s own.
I can see it. . .
Patience is a virtue they say. . .
and we hold our breath and wait.
snow flakes in the Carolina’s
the girl with dancing feet cooks pancakes today
seeing more teeth, creases in face, eyebrows moving ever so slight
best Nana made it home safe
cars that work
work for the Fisherman
warm bed to sleep late in
early morning talks with the fisherman . . . no one around just us. . . how I love those times
