    This is great news. I am so happy she is doing well. Looks like she has some facial droop. Hope that improves with time.

    I had similar facial palsy as a temporary side effect from stretching the nerve out of the way during surgery a few years ago.

Hopefully her nerve wasn’t damaged/severed, but I think even if it was, there are surgeries that can help.
