this is not really a post. this is just a warm-up for a post because i feel so out of practice since last week, when I foolishly mistook my macbook pro for a hydrangea plant, badly in need of hydration. what a fool i was!
And then there was surgery… the final episode of my 5-surgery mini-series to restore functionality to a paralyzed left vocal cord.
So this is my very first post with my brand new laryngeal implant and my brand new super deluxe super expensive macbook pro that i can only afford with 18 months of 0% APR financing that i have blind faith i can one day pay off. Actually, the laryngeal implant was quite a bit more expensive… but who wants to write about finances? Not me.
i am not at my sharpest or sharp at all this eve… my body and mind as a surgical chemistry experiment. antibiotics, steroids, laxatives, several flavors of pain meds. And then there’s this scary scar along my neck. but who wants to hear me write about my neck.
i am just grateful to be here and to be buoyed up by so many mysterious and familiar faces and forces.
