Subject: Bad news for Kendall
From: kendall
Date: 25 Jan 02 - 04:14 PM

I just came home from my third follow up exam of my vocal cords. I have a condition which he described as "abnormal" and it should be biopsyed and removed surgically. He is concerned that it might be pre cancerous. All I know is I lost my voice over two months ago, and, it has to be serious. He suggested I go to Boston to a specialist who deals with professionals voice problems on a regular basis. I'm really bummed out.

Kendall, I hope you do go to Boston, as they will be more familiar with these types of things and give you the best advice, as far as allopathic medicine is concerned.

I, too, hope you will try the Tea Tree oil and/or the acupuncturist we talked about. The Chinese have been at medicine for so many thousands of years, there is much to draw on there, too, and it doesn't all involve needles!:-)

There are good visualisation techniques to use with something like this, too. If you are interested, please give me a holler, email or PM.

And, don't forget to let your furry pal nuzzle up and give you "luvs."

Light, Love, and Healing to you,

Kendall, take it from a doc: prayers, laughter, and positive thoughts do help. I saw a newborn three days ago who I thought had bad pneumonia, contracted in utero. I told the parents he would most likely get better but would need to be in the hospital for a week for antibiotic treatment. The father told me that he'd been praying and was sure the baby would get better and go home with mom at three days. That evening the baby rapidly improved and came off of oxygen. The repeat x-ray was nearly clear. The baby went home yesterday with the mom at three days of age. Now most likely he had, not pneumonia, but retained lung fluid due to the cesarean delivery, with an x-ray that fooled me...or did he? Either way, he got better, just as dad said he would.

Lots of positive energy working for you here, my friend. All the best.

Aloha,
Mark

Kendall, ugly news but I'm glad you're following up on this with qualified professionals. I still remember one long time friend who procrastinated too long. My mother adopted a dual strategy for her cancer problem, conventional surgery and radiation along with appeals to her favorite tree gods and goddesses; she did all right.

You know how to reach me if there is something useful you think I could do, from chauffering you to Boston to feeding whatever animals cohabit with you.

From: SharonA

Auuuggghhh!!! Kendall, I'm so sorry to hear that your situation is this serious. I'd been reading your posts, and hoping your condition was temporary . But a condition that requires a biopsy? – damn!

Six years ago, I had a lung biopsy (they thought I might have had lung cancer, but it turned out to be sarcoidosis) (still serious, but I'll take that over cancer any day!). Even though I was anesthetized and "half-out", I still remember how difficult it was to get the tube down my throat past the vocal cords. *gag* I feel for you having to have a tube in that area at all.

So, do go to Boston or another major city – to a major, MAJOR hospital where they know what they're doing – and find the best doctors you can possibly find to do the biopsy. Don't mess around with this, and don't put it off. If it is indeed a pre-cancerous condition, you'd best catch it while it's "pre".

Be sure to do research on the necessary medical procedures and the doctors performing them. I'm sure you're remembering Julie Andrews and her surgery at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital (and the resulting malpractice suit). All of Andrews's money and fame didn't save her from a botched operation on her vocal cords... so learn from her experience! Sorry that I'm being "Mary Anti-Sunshine" here, but I don't want the shock of this news to cause you to stumble blindly into a worse situation than you're already in. If you need help researching the best place to go, there are knowledgable folks on the 'Cat to help you!

Hang in there, and take comfort in knowing that we're all pulling for you.

Sharon

Kendall, I'm sure you know, and if you don't you can see, that you have lots of friends here and we're all pulling for you and sending our very best prayers, thoughts, wishes, and whatever else we have in your direction. Before this thread is through, you'll have various incantations from all over the world and you need to look at them all and realize that you're really not alone in anything anymore.

If there are other ways that people here can help, we will, but if you let it happen, you'll feel that warmth and caring with you as you go through this. We're all on your side and we'll be right here with all the support you will ever need because, crusty old bastard that you are, we still love you.......but you know that don't you...........just as we know you're not really that crusty old bastard.

So listen, if you're around a hospital anyway, why not go ahead and have the hydraulics installed in your Willie? If you go that route, be sure to get the manual pump because a Catholic guy out in Denver had his short out as he stood in line for Communion and gave the lady in front of him an uplifting experience.

As they say, Kendall, "when the prayers go up, the blessings come down." Looks like you have a lot of prayers going up. And a lot of people who love you who have you in their hearts. I tell ya, Kendall, I see so many healings around me, that I am beginning to think that we would notice miracles more if they weren't so commonplace. The 84 year old mother of a woman who works at Walmart (that's the only way that I know her,) had eye surgery a couple of weeks ago. She wasn't supposed to bend over, but forgot, and something ruptured in her eye. She had three more surgeries on consecutive days, and her eye went completely white. The Doctor said that when that happens, it usually means that the eye has gone blind. Now, a week later, he's starting to take her off some of the medication and she's regaining her sight. I think that you're going to have a beautiful story to tell, Kendall. We'll all be waiting to hear it. My wife and I are sending special prayers up for you.

Adding my voice to the chorus... wishing you the best outcome. I'm sure it's very scary- not only on a personal level but especially to someone who has made his living with his voice for so long- but you've got a lot of love and support here and as others have said, let yourself feel it and it will warm you through and through.

I remember one time when I literally saw a golden sparkly tent-like drape over me when people were 'holding me in the light'. It's hard to be depressed when you know that is there.

Be well.
