Some news about our friend Chris Barcellos

Chris recently became afflicted with Bells palsy. It is a condition caused by some nerve blockage and results in half of your face not working correctly. It is not really very well understood, but the good news is that with time the recovery rate is quite high.

Chris, sport that he is, made a video of it and it is on Youtube at:

YouTube - BellsPalsy-What it Looks Like

Join me is wishing him back behind the camera soon.

Chris,

That happened to me last December. A little disconcerting as you think it might be a stroke, but I recovered completely in about 2 months. Really just a minor inconvenience, but way less serious than Gillian Barre'. That crap kicked my butt twenty years ago, and it took more than a year to fully recover.

Glad you can see the humor in losing control of part of your face. Keep smiling!

Dick

Dick, I am running across a lot of people who have had similar issues. Still concerned about a wide range of potential outcomes, but no use dwelling on it.


Thanks to all for your kind wishes.

Hey Chris,

Either I'm getting to know more people or this is getting to be more common. Scary stuff, regardless. Everyone I know who has dealt with it has fully recovered, so I hope that for you, too.

Sorry to hear about this, Chris, but glad to hear you're expected to come out of it. Hope it doesn't take too long! And I hope I didn't jinx it by saying that.
