How does it always happen that I am weeks behind on the blogging and then I have to post like three times to cover all that has happened in the weeks before?! Are there ever enough hours in the day to do all the things we would like?
I am sure some of you are curious just what sort of "operation" news I have to gab about. My daddy has had yet another procedure...but this one seems to have been a tremendous success! For those of you who are not in the loop, my Daddy, Steve, is a throat cancer survivor. Unfortunately, one of the many side effects from radiation result in paralysis of one vocal chord. His voice was not much more than a strained whisper. After a failed voice procedure in October, he was referred to larynx specialist in Kansas City.
On January 8th he had surgery to correct his voice. The doctor implanting a piece of material inside his throat that moved the immobile chord toward the other, thus producing sound again. He will always have the paralyzed chord, but now he can speak with some volume! You will never know just how much of a burden has been lifted from his shoulders now that his voice has returned! Hooray for Daddy...we love you sooo much!
