The time came to have Maxim checked with the neurologist. The issue is with his facial nerve partially paralized on the right side of his face. It does not affect him in any other way than making his smile a bit more charming, but it is an anomaly that should be doctor supervised.
Dr.Simos arranged an appointment for us with the collegue of his. Maxim was checked all from top to bottom – his eyes’ movement, his hands’ grip, rubber hammer was used upon his knees, heels, and elbows, he was touched, patted, sitted, turned around and smiled at.
It seems that all of his reactions are normal. There are no other traces of neurological disbalance. There will be more tests to see if the cause of the paralysis – misplaced pressure somewhere – has gone or not. If it’s not – that we will have to take care of it. Otherwise, some vitamines and massage will correct the situation.
Although we’ll be having more medical examinations unleash on Maxim, I for one feel a bit less worried. It doesn’t look like a major problem and there are good chances of curing it too.
