Subject: RE: BS: Kendall's operation
Well folks, the deed is done. Doctor Shapshay says it went off without a hitch, no tracheotomy, and he sent the samples to the lab to be sure he got all of it. He says I will have a speaking voice but as for singing, no guarantees there. At the same time, he said, and my regular ENT said that vocal cords have been known to regenerated, so, who knows? All your prayers and positive thoughts must have carried great weight with the Great Spirit. In the next bed in recovery was a middle age woman who had had radical surgery and was breathing through a hole in her neck; disgusting sound when she coughed, poor soul.
Anyway I have to go back for a follow up on November 17th, and the Doctor says there is no reason to not go to England in December.
Thasnks so much for all you have done to keep my spirits up. Speaking of spirits, I have a jug of Duggan's Dew o' Kirkintilloch Scotch to help celebrate.
