Had an appointment on Thursday. It went about as I thought it would.
The doctor feels that with another week to heal and getting some exercises/lessons with a speech therapist/pathologist, I will be much closer to returning to work. There is a definite target date, but I won't be sharing it. Probably MUCH sooner than you think…you'll just have to listen to STAR EVERY morning to find out…and I know you already do that!
I'm being as aggressive as I can, starting speech therapy tomorrow at 11am, and will probably have multiple appointments next week.
What I have is officially called dysphonia. Monday morning I will undergo a videostroboscopy...a more intense look at my throat/larynx...just to rule out any pathological problems. I'm so joyously looking forward to having more wires angled through my nose and into my throat. Are you enjoying your breakfast/lunch/dinner?
I am certainly making progress every day, and will have a better look at how far along I am after meeting with the vocal therapist tomorrow.
Thanks to Sue O for getting up at 4am for one more week (Napa is looking sooooo good to her right now), and to my producers for keeping the blogs and tweets rolling (though they could tweet more…) They need to remind me of the work they have put in next time I get cross with them. "Get cross?" Yes, I've been watching far too much Downton Abbey. Almost done with Season 2! Semi-binge watching! And we now have a dressing gong that sounds when it's nearing dinner time!
A trailer for the 2015 film, Avengers: Age of Ultron "leaked" a little early this week.
It was supposed to hit at the beginning of next week - Tuesday, to be precise, during an episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but instead, somehow found its way to the Internet about six days early.
The folks at Marvel Entertainment took it all in stride, and blamed it all on Hydra.
Hydra's the terrorist organization for which many of the bad guys in the Marvelverse work - so why not?
