Happy Hour Anchor Willard Has Lyme Disease

willard_7-7b.JPGA few tipsters voiced some “concern” regarding a puffy left eye of Happy Hour co-anchor Cody Willard on Wednesday.

It turns out the FBN host will be off air for a bit — he blogs this weekend that he has been diagnosed with Lyme Disease. The Lyme Disease, he writes, caused Bell’s Palsy on his face.

“It looks like we probably caught this Lyme Disease quickly enough that I will be fully cured from it,” writes Willard. “In that sense, getting this Bell’s Palsy to get me to the hospital to get cured is also a blessing.”

Willard writes he likely contracted the disease, “from a camping trip in the woods in upstate New York,” a few weeks ago.

There is no word how long Willard be out (although it could potentially be a while). Eric Bolling pulls a stool up to the bar to fill in as co-anchor with Rebecca Gomez on the 5pmET show.
