Subject: Kendall's next operation
From: kendall
Date: 04 Apr 08 - 07:42 PM

Since everything else has failed to restore my voice, I am now scheduled to have another operation just after Indian Neck on May 14th.
This one will consist of an implant of cadaver skin into the gap that was left when they removed the cancer.

Wish me luck, this is probably the last hope.

Ditto what the good folks here have said, Kendall. I cannot even imagine the 'agony' you are in to have one of your treasured means of self-expression taken away. If there is a God, I hope he's looking in on this one.

Karen's Dad did this if you're talking about Cymetra. Its an injectable, cadver skin based, goo that fills the space and a simple procedure they have had good success with for temporary repairs. Or are you doing something newer with the cadaver skin?   All my best thoughts will be with you for a success.

I don't know what the actual procedure looks like, but the Doctor says he has had a lot of success with it. Seems kinda weird to stick a piece of a dead person into my vocal cord, but I'll try anything.

...they did the Monster Mash. It was a graveyard smash...

So, this might be the real 'dead man walking'? Or should that be 'dead man talking'?



Well, somebody had to say it.I'll get me coat.

Kendalldarlin', remember what the Great Spirit has already brought you through. I give thanks for a complete and successful outcome for you, that your voice is restored to you. I give thanks for this or something better for the highest good of all concerned.

And, as the others have said, it is YOU, living in that body, whom we love, vocal or not...we love you.

Feel those vibes, darlin'!

Seriously though, keeping my fingers crossed for you that this works. You already know we love you for yourself, voice or not, but I understand how you feel - when you are a performer, you can't help feeling that your voice is so much a part of who you are. So lots of healing vibes coming from Oz.

Thanks to everyone - I know that your good wishes mean a lot to Kendall and they certainly do to me as well.

From what the surgeon told us when we were talking about procedures they will implant freeze dried cadaver skin in the hope that

a) Kendall's body won't absorb it, as has been the case with the two previous procedures

b) His own cells will start to grow round the implant and fill the gap naturally.

His surgeon is loathe to use any artificial fillers, in view of the radiotherapy that Kendall had to undergo when the cancer first appeared. That compromised Kendall's immune system and there is always the danger that non-natural fillers could cause an infection that might ultimately lead to the vocal cord having to be removed.

We saw a speech specialist in Boston last year who, as some of you are aware, helped Kendall with voice exercises that led to his being able to perform at the Getaway last November. That guy said that this type of cancer is becoming more prevalent and that there is a lot of research being done to try and restore damaged cords. We're hoping that this procedure works but I ain't giving up hope if it's not a success. I love Kendall just as he is but I know how much it means to him to have a voice restored.

Speaking of Kendall's wrinkled old ass, maybe some cadaver skin would help out there as well. Better yet maybe they just do a complete ass transplant......fix him up with some gigantic ass from someone who passed on from obesity.

Maybe they could also transplant some working genitals as well or at least something that would work without both massive quantities of Mycoxaphalen (generic Viagra) and implanted hydraulics. The last time Kendall blew a line, the hydraulic fluid ruined not just the sheets but the mattress as well and he and Jacqui had to scrub down with GoJo and Lava soap.

Kendall, I heard an interview of Julie Andrews on Fresh Air with Terry Gross, this morning on NPR. You should listen to it. Julie had surgery a few years ago, not for a cancerous growth, but for a cyst on her throat. She'd had her BIG voice since she was little, started performing with it at 7 with her mom and dad in vaudeville, so she really identified with her voice. Anyway, she cannot sing, she can still talk, act, etc. but cannot sing since the surgery. There must be something legal going on about it, because she said the lawyers were not letting her talk about the surgery itself, BUT she had some very positive things to say about all of it...having that voice, losing it and coping, making a life beyond just her singing voice. I am NOT saying it will happen to you, but she was very inspiring to listen to and it made me think of you. One of the things she said it has freed her up to do is write. She has written an autobiography which sounds really good.

Both the previous procedures have used Kendall's own tissue and fat. Each time his body has reabsorbed the filler. I think the idea is that this time there will be nothing that his body can absorb and that, hopefully, his own cells will grow over the implant, giving living tissue to fill the gap.

I don't think that stem cell technology is, as yet, at a stage where they can use it for these sorts of procedures.

Well, here we are at home on the day that we were supposed to be in Albany, letting the surgeon loose on Kendall's vocal cord again.

Kendall had started having some problems with a cough a few days ago, while we were ranging around, visiting friends before going to a gathering at the weekend in Connecticut. Unfortunately, Connecticut was, according to a local pharmacist, in the midst of the worst pollen season for quite a while and this may have aggravated Kendall's problems.

Suffice to say, when we went to Albany yesterday for him to have pre-admission testing, his surgeon, after looking at chest X-rays, postponed the surgery, and it has been re-arranged for June 11.

This was probably a good thing - after being away from home for two weeks we both wanted nothing more than to be home again and it was a real relief to sink into our own beds at the end of a long day.

Many thanks to those who provided hospitality over the past two weeks. I wish that we had had time to get to visit with more of our friends but time and distance precluded that. There will be another time, however, if I have anything to do with it!

Not to worry Barnacle!!!

They use only the best cadaver skin. As I understand it, certain types of tissue work better for this surgery than others. According to the National Health website the most desirable comes from the scrotums of deceased winos. The recipient may have some residual side effects such as bad breath and uncontrollable belching but these pass after a few months leaving only a faint aroma of White Rocket.

EBarnacle - I think that the cadaver skin is used because it is an inert, natural substance with less chance of infection or rejection. The body should not reabsorb it either.

Spaw - go wash your mouth out you 'orrible man! :0) I nearly ruined yet another keyboard there and Kendall's just muttered something about 'that f@#^$*g guy!' whilst almost falling off his chair laughing.

Thanks for all the good thoughts to you all. Kendall's got a while to clear this out of his system and we've confirmed with the surgeon that he will be fit for Old Songs a couple of weeks later.

We're here in Albany and I've just sneaked out the room leaving Mr Grumpy asleep as long as possible this morning.

We have to be at the clinic at 9.00am and he is to be operated on at 11.00am. Since he is allowed nothing to eat or drink this morning he's going to be a joy to deal with in the meantime. The longer he sleeps now the less time he's going to have to reflect on his fasting!

Kendall is a bit worried about this procedure. Right now it seems to be the last hope for giving him any sort of voice and, after the previous two failures, he is naturally concerned that this one may go the same route.

Lots of good thoughts today please, and for the next few weeks.

Thanks everyone.

I was fine until they took him through to the opering room, then it all got a bit much for a little while.

Kendall's fine - he is on voice rest for five days now. He's a bit tired and grumpy as all get out but, hopefully, that should be resolved by a good meal tonight and a night's sleep. He'll feel a lot better when we're back home in Maine.

Dr Shapshay says that he has put 1cc of this substance in, which he thinks should fill the gap. However, with the scarring from the radiation, it is difficult to get a clear view. He says that there is a little raised 'flap' at the end of the chord, which may also be stopping the chords meeting properly. The plan right now is to see what results we get from this procedure and then whether it's worth going in and shaving off the flap to try and get further closure.

We have to come back in for the post op in about three weeks time so I'm going to try and get that arranged early in the week after Old Songs, when we will already be here.

The surgeon has not closed the door on any further procedures, but it would be good if this one worked.

I'm looking forward to another good meal in the hotel - the food is amazingly good - and a large glass of Chardonnay (for medical purposes, of course!)

Logically, if something is "beyond price" than a value or worth cannot be placed on it. Therefore it is worthless or valueless. Now, Kendall's voice is obviously worth a whole lot so you'd have to say that it was "nearly priceless" or "practically worthless."

He really was loopy - he let me drive all the way home from Albany - not that I was going to let him loose with the car in his present condition.

We stopped in Mass. for a 'comfort break' and, as we got out the car, he told me that he would drive the rest of the way. By the time we got back to the car he had decided that I had better finish the driving. Whatever the painkillers are they're pretty strong!

Wonder of wonders, I've barely heard a peep out of him for 24 hours now! He really is taking the voice rest seriously.

Talking intravenously could be dangerous, as you could blow an airbubble into your blood stream. Better to do it rectally until the throat heals up.

Or maybe we need phrases used on a specific thing that gives us a problem. The phrase that Kendall used there might be a good example when speaking to your car.

Or should we just have a Cappin' contest, play the dozens type thing where one might say, "Kendall, you're so friggin' stupid you might be twins.".........Or, "Your nuts are so small and seedlike it would take 12 dozen to make a snack for a canary."

"syphilitic son of a whore"

I heard that years ago! and not since. I was salmon fishing on the Main SW Mirimichi. Heard someone coming along the path next to the river. I heard a thump and knew the person had slipped and hit the muddy ground.

A string of profanity began that was almost poetic, increased upon the second upset and lasted a good 45 seconds until, still waxing poetic, out of the bushes steps Ted Williams (baseball player of note). He was covered in mud from wader boot to shoulder on one side. He arched up upon seeing me and said. "Oh... you're here."

I said, as I was reeling in my line and coming ashore, "That was fucking beautiful. May I watch you fish? Maybe I can learn something new there too." He laughed and said, "Sure sonny." I did learn something. I will never be able to cast a fly like Ted Williams.

About twenty minutes later, another master fly fisher came along. Tom Sellick. I was treated to quite a show of fly fishing technique and finesse. I understand he bought Ted's land. Funny, though... he never calls to invite me fishing.

BTW, that pic of me fishing in the Member Photos & Info is where that happened... on the opposite side, to the right.

Anyway.... how are you feeling today, Cap'n?

A story about swearing. The exact details vary, but the basics seem to have survived. Mark Twain (Sam Clemens) was known an an inveterate cusser, and used the language to great advantage. (He wrote a famous essay about the German language in which he relates how frustrated he was when he discovered "damit" was only a preposition.)

anyway:

"Clemens's wife, Livy, was one of the few who did not appreciate her husband's swearing, and he tried to keep watch on his tongue when she was close by; but one day something irritated him, and, thinking his wife could not hear, he launched into a torrent of red-hot profanity. When he entered his wife's room a short time later, she coolly repeated word-for-word everything he had said.

    "Livy," he replied, astounded yet amused, "did it sound like that?"

    "Of course it did," she said, "only worse. I wanted you to hear just how it sounded."

    "Livy, it would pain me to think that when I swear it sounds like that. You got the words right, Livy, but you don't know the tune."

I am not sure "maricón" would have been taught in High School, but if you are conversational, I would suggest not using it in polite company...***chuckle***.

Basically this is a play on words foisted on a yanqui who doesn't speak and who is the classic ugly American. The correct thing to say is ".....soy Norteamericano" or "...soy de Norte America" ("I am American" or "I am from the USA". Yes, I am aware that Mexicanos and Canadians are both from North America, but that is the referent in Spanish as spoken in the Americas). But this person, in their ignorant bliss, would think that "maricón" was "American" in Spanish because it has some similarity. Actually it means faggot or homosexual. It is a derisive term in the extreme. Call the wrong person a "maricón" and you likely should be wearing kevlar. I cannot rid my mind of the vision of some gringo standing there, in righteous indignation, proclaiming, "....Yo soy maricón." It is still cracking me up, taken in the context of the story.

All the best,

Going back to Big Mick's last post, my friend Cesar, a Dominican, once remarked that beside the "maricon," there was also a class known as "buggeron." He was, at the time, unaware of the Anglo-American etymology of the term. As he put it, politely, the maricon both "gives and recieves", whereas the buggeron only "gives," without any aspersions on his masculinity.

Dani, it depends on context and how one says it. Mariposa can be used as a more polite way of naming someone a homosexual, but in most cases it is still just a nicer way of insulting someone. It is like the difference of calling someone a faggot, or saying he is "light in the loafers".

Kendall, good luck with your vocal chords. Pavarottis method of getting his voice ready to perform was to sing very socftly and quietly during the day, prior to performing in the evening.
here's a song to help you on the way..

Day after day,
Alone on a mule,
The man with the foolish grin is
keeping perfectly cool
But everyone wants to know him,
they can see that he's so cool,
And he never gives an answer,
for the fool on the mule,
Sees the sun going down,
And the eyes in his head,
See the world spinning 'round.
Well on the way,
Head in a cloud,
The man of a 1000 voices talking perfectly loud
But nobody ever hears him,
Or the sound he appears to make,
And he never seems to notice,
for the fool on the mule,
Sees the sun going down,
And the eyes in his head,
See the world spinning 'round.
And he never listens to them,
He knows that they're the fools
They don't like mules,
Ooh, ooh,
Round and round and round.

The fool on the mule
Sees the sun going down,
And the eyes in his head,
See the world spinning 'round.

Ooh,
Round and round and round

oops, apols to some infamous insects...

When a rich man in a big car wizzed past
But the car it broke down before reaching town
For the rich man had run out of gas
The man joined the fool on the back of the mule
And together they reached town at last
The beast blew a fart; gave the rich man a start
'Cause the mule still had plenty of gas
Now Kendall my friend; I hope in the end
That this ditty will cause you to smile
And I pray that the sound of your voice will be found
To return in a very short while.

The fool on the mule in his dress of pink tulle
is a man with a heart that is sweet
he's wearing stilettos
and singing allegretto
to a donkey he met down the street!!

The man on the mule, a romantic old fool,
has a humour that's warm and its wacky
I must mention of course
he is known to be coarse
except in the company of jacqui

as he whispers sweet nothings
and soft serenades
his vocal chords revving
with soft chardonnay
the song that endures
for the man on the mule
is the song of of the fool in the tulle on the mule...

We just got back from Albany where Kendall had his post-op check up.

His surgeon was very pleased with the voice that he heard and the examination showed that the filler has remained in place and is doing the job of almost filling the gap left by the original surgery. Kendall's false vocal cords are coming into play again and he has to do the voice exercises to try and train them not to react but, overall, Dr Shapshay was very pleased with the results.

He says that it will be a few months until we see (and hear) the final results of this procedure and we will be going to see him in October, on the way back from the Getaway.

Kendall will never again have that wonderful voice that I have only heard on recordings - the cord is scarred and stiff and will never vibrate as it should again - but he is getting more of a voice back and should have no problem with storytelling and, with practice, singing songs that would suit the different voice that he will have.
At least he has a voice and that is a real blessing.
