my ordeal with bell's palsy

Day 1 - i felt pain on my right head, my scalp to be specific
Day 2 - pain at the back of right ear, went to see the doc and had otic solution, 2-3 drops every 6 hours which i followed religiously
Day 3 - pain on my right head, back of right ear, right jaw, right neck base and my tongue lost its sense of taste - all this happened while i did 2 loads of laundry
          - was rushed to the ER where procedures were done immediately. CT Scan, Xrays, blood chem - needle prick anywhere but the right side of my face had been motionless and feeling less. I was admitted at the hospital due to the reason that i will be at risk with the stroke anytime. Btw, Bell's Palsy is not a stroke. It is a facial paralysis where nerves cannot function well to supply blood to the MidCranial Artery of the brain.
Day 4 - still lying in the hospital, IV pushed medications, monitor, monitor as BP shooting up
Day 5- still at the hospital and the birthday of my daughter.....sorry girl I missed your birthday. Hope to make up sometime when mommy will be okay. Love u!!!
Day 6 - hospital latta
Day 7  - doctors won't let me go out yet. Thay want a massive work out on me - a neurosurgeon, cardiologist, internist and an EENT doctor, all four collaborated and concluded it's BELL'S PALSY!!! And so, i have to undergo therapy this time. Good thing the therapist is willing to come to the hospital. 
Day 8 - PT session at the hospital goes on, so on with IV and IV push medicines, which I don't bother to know for there are too many
Day 9 - same procedures but finally released from the hospital at last. but have to go back and forth for my therapy sessions. BTW, i cannot drive yet. Right eye is still conditional though i can blink at with a force and will power.

It's my 3rd day at home......and unwilling to go out. I miss the public market, my gym buddies, the groceries, etc. Still i'm hopeful, someday everything will be back to normal......Thank u all for the love u shared in these times of my darkness and tomorrow will be a brand new day!!!

corby 2

Got my Samsung Corby 2 six months ago. Opted for samsung mobile due to the large font however i am not satisfied with the performance of Corby 2  specially w hen it comes to its applications such as using the the camera, videos , sounds, themes, games, etc. The internal memory is not enough and it is impossible to delete unused applications programed. It war ns that there is not enough memory even there is no more saved, halos wala nang laman, not enough memory pa rin and sometimes i just want to throw my phone away. If i could only have the money now i will buy a replacement for my phone and definitely not Samsung Corby 2.
