Yeah, you scared us with that title. But I can only imagine what you were dealing with.

I'm sorry you have this, but glad it wasn't a stroke. I hope you don't lose your truck and I'm looking forward to more positive stuff from you in the future.

You're a good and positive influence in this crazy world.

Best wishes and prayers.

I remember years ago my father in law went through having Bell's Palsy. It took almost three months for him, but eventually everything came back to normal.

I'm glad to hear you can keep on driving.

He mentioned taking medicine to help. I gave him a timeline based on taking it religiously. I am horrible at taking medicine. It took me about a month to get use of the right side of my face. About 2 for most all the use to come back.

Im very happy everything isnt as serious as you originally thought. Things could have been horrid. I eish you the best of luck on a quick recovery so you can join everyone again to scowling at stupid drivers.

The cause of the inflammation is not exactly known.

If I didn't know any better I'd say the cause was eating too much fried chicken! Seems like every time I talk to Gladhand he's either eating Chester' s or trying out someplace new that serves...FRIED CHICKEN!


Sorry, just trying to add a little humor. Hope that doesn't offend you man. I'm sure it's gotta suck dealing with this, but I'm really glad it wasn't something more serious. Here's to a speedy recovery!

Thanks for the get well wishes. Taking today off and thinking about getting a fancy hotel room. And Paul you know me haha. I was joking with my friend when I was in line to be seen in the emergency room.

Should probably slow down my fried chicken intake, but I still need to try chicken express and golden chick lmao.

Now I am having hell eating and drinking. I look like a person without teeth eating. Forget how important our health is in life. Money can always be made, but our health won't always be great. Definitely a wake up call for me to monitor my health and learn how to deal with stress better.

Invest in disposable bibs. Eating and drinking are going to be very entertaining for a few weeks at least.

Gladhand if your really into chicken you gotta find a place called Island BBQ *near* Riverside CA. I can't recall exactly where it is but it'seems awesome... Unfortunately the company I'm with now doesn't go to CA.

Scary moment!

Glad it's not as serious as it might have been, but it still sucks.

Did you know there is chicken in Slim Jims?
