I mentioned briefly that I was going to be out for surgery. Thankfully, it all went really well yesterday and I'm home and feeling pretty good. The entire thing was a bit of a whirlwind, as they found that I had a large mass that we only discovered after I struggled with laryngitis and sore throats for about five weeks. I have to admit, that as a teacher, thinking about not having a strong voice is a little scary. I've always been able to yell out over a large classroom of noisy students to get their attention, but have had to resort to whistling to get their attention at the beginning of class, and to writing a lot of things on the board. Not fun.
Anyway, all is well. I realize I'm going to really fit in with the Halloween theme this year, as my scar makes me look and feel a bit like Frankenstein! Maybe I can pull off some "bride of" theme? What do you think?
