DT Lyrics:













Subject: The latest on Kendall's voice
From: kendall
Date: 06 Sep 07 - 04:47 PM

Well, I'm back from Boston, and here's what the man said.After nearly two
hours of manual manipulation of my larynx, and squeezing my throat like he
was trying to throttle me, and asking me to make a myriad of sounds, he
said, there is a voice there, and it needs three things to bring it out.
1.Patience
2.Determination
3.Confidence

Also, to continue working with my therapist in Portland, and regular
sessions with Dr. Roediger, my ENT, and with Dr. Shapshay, the surgeon, to
be sure the cancer does not return.

The exercises he gave me are silly sounding, and boring. Some of them are
painful, which goes against my nature. No pain, no pain is my motto. But, I
know Jacqui is going to crack the whip and make me miserable if I don't keep
up with my end of the deal.
He also said that I probably shouldn't expect a call for me to replace Pavarotti.

Well, for what it's worth, I thought your voice definitely sounded clearer and stronger when I saw you at Old Songs. This sounds fairly positive to me. Keep up the PITA exercises and do everything Jacqui tells you to like a good old duffer ( or at least pretend to).
Good on ya.

That's wonderful news, Kendall! We know you have the perseverance and confidence, I hope, now for the patience!

My surgeon told me it would take three years at least to lose the extra weight I put on when I was so sick and couldn't exercise. It has taken me until now to remember how to breath deeply enough to get enough O2 without a tank AND get my body in good enough condition to start exercising. So...maybe we can hook up as "buddies"...you make the silly sounds while I walk it off!**bg**

Rap - if I wore that lot I'd look like an overful bin bag! I do have the cat o' nine tails we got at our wedding reception however.......

Ihave to be very careful with this - if I push too hard the stubborn old bugger just refuses to do anything (Taurean trait). I shall just have to be crafty and get some help from Ladies of Maine, who I know will be only too pleased to get involved.

I've set the Getaway as a target for Kendall to get some voice back and am hoping that, with work at home and his visits to his wonderful speech therapist (female and fell for his charms first time out!), that the target is doable.

Kendall, I don't know you, but Sinsull sent me one of your tapes as a Secret Santa gift. It's in my car and I play it quite a bit. And your recording of "Rolling Home" is in my computer, courtesy of Rose, the Record Lady. I'm going to get my band to do it. Anyway, it would be a shame for that voice to be stilled. So do you exercises, because I'm retired now, and having gone to a police academy run by the NJ State Police, I haved an idea of how to push someone.

YOU CALL THAT VOCALIZING? MY TWO YEAR OLD DAUGHTER CAN SING BETTER THAN THAT! WE CAN STAND HERE ALL DAY IF WE HAVE TO. LET'S GO LET'S GO LET'S GO, I WANT SOME SINGING DAMN YOU, I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!! FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, THAT'S NOT SINGING, THAT'S WHINING. MAYBE YOUR MOMMY THINKS THAT'S SINGING, BUT I AIN'T YOU MOMMY AND I WANT TO SING LIKE A MAN AND IF YOU CAN'T WE'LL JUST SEND YOU HOME TO YOUR MOMMY BECAUSE I DON'T THINK YOU CAN HANDLE IT!!!!!

And we can go on like that all day. You don't want that. So, do what Jacqi and the rest of the folks up there tell you and we'll all be happy.

Steve

It's a hell of a roller coaster, Captain. But we, me and probably you too, ride it, screaming all the way, and learning to like the positives of it quite a bit when we can. Like single malt scotch, the taste can be acquired. Still the long dips can be lonesome at best. Just be glad you see a light in your tunnel, and that there is a way to, hopefully, rehab it for you. And a decent community is here for you.

Onward and upward!
