15 hours With No Food.
How sad is it that 15 hours with no food sounds absolutely preposterous?
I am having surgery on Monday and apparently this fasting is protocol. Ugh.
It's no big deal. I have a growth on my left vocal cord, and while my voice is very deep, raspy and "sexy", some days I will wake up with no voice at all. I can't even read out loud anymore without losing my breath.
So much of my work entails talking, and everyone is always asking if I am sick.
Anyway, no eating or drinking (not even water) after midnight and my surgery isn't until 2.
I am not worried about the surgery, I have had surgery before. It's the talking for the first time after that is freaking me out.
My voice has always been really distinctive. People always comment on it. I know the hoarseness has gotten worse, significantly worse, over the past 3 years and I know I need a voice that works.
But I have this nightmare that I will wake up and sound like Janice from friends.
So, think of me on Monday. Not sure if I will post between now and then.
If not, I'll miss you.
