Adventures at the Otolaryngologist

So, it is done. I have had my vocal paraphernalia checked by the very nice Mr Peter Blake FRACS in Kelburn.  As you can see by the photo I was a bit apprehensive .

Wondering what is going to be done to me

Wondering what is going to be done to me

I  can assure you it wasn’t too bad. Basically after discussing the history of my voice and what had led me to come – see my previous post  –  He then squirted some topical anaesthetic up my nose which promptly ran down my throat.

Admittedly that stuff tastes disgusting but after a few minutes everything did feel rather numb. I then got to recline on a medical chair – (getting to recline is always a treat) – while a flexible fibre optic laryngoscope was inserted through my nose to my throat. This sounds horrid and while a little disconcerting, if one relaxes it’s not too bad. I then had to make some sounds while he peered at my vocal folds.

It turns out all I have is a mild laryngitis! No polyps, no nodules,  and  just a slightly narrow supraglottic area resonator which is just part of my particular physiology.

The verdict – rest my voice and take care of it. Don’t scream at my daughter, bellow with breath support at soccer and be mindful at loud parties.

    The crab cakes look enormous! My favorite so far is not really a crab cake, per se, but a “Crab Croquetta” from a restaurant called Asia De Cuba here in New York. They pair it with a Ponzu dipping sauce and it’s simply delicious!

    I've used the Quick Study Guide from "Bible Discovery" for several years. You read from Genesis through Revelation during the year with their study guide and it's amazing how the Lord has new insights each time I read through! I alternate from AM to PM reading (whatever is most convenient) and sometimes have to play "catch-up". And I do like your ideas very much and thanks for sharing:)

    Alexis, thank you for making time to read the post. My hope was that in sharing some of the links the debate could have a frame. I have been fascinated by the comments people have made in on-line fora. There is a very strong lead for elite sport to pull its head in.

    RuthIt’s the little things that make all the difference. That was wonderful and inspiring. I didn’t really understand and love my mother until I was grown – then I couldn’t do enough for her.

    The Absent Game…Among me and my husband we have owned a lot more MP3 gamers over time than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (traditional & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few decades I’ve settled down to one line of players….
