Can Anyone Hear Me?

I am losing my voice... again. Anyone who knows me knows that this is a common occurrence. Growing up with "throat issues" it never has bothered me having a habitual sore throat or losing my voice frequently. I guess it's just one of those things we all have to learn to live with. Yes, I've run the course of doctors tests, surgery, yadda, yadda, yadda. Really it's just the way I am, I except that.

But now that I have children at an age where communication is so important it has become quite a nuisance. I call them to dinner, they don't hear me. I try to get their attention for anything and they don't hear me. These throat issues have become obnoxious to say the least. Wouldn't it be amazing if there was someone you could go to with a medical problem and they could fix it?! Oh well, I will sip my warm green tea on the back porch tonight trying to whisper loudly "Zane, don't push your sister down the slide! Audrey, quit tying the dog up with jump ropes!" while no one hears me and continues doing whatever it is they shouldn't.

Ta Ta for now

It seems there is always some cross we all have to bear to remind us we're not perfect - yours has always been your throat. I remember as a little girl we would know you were going to get sick when your voice started to fad. Hang in there Dear, and enjoy your tea!
