A Long And Winding Road

Such is the road to recovery. I am getting stronger every day and my voice is starting to come back a bit. It is still not where it was, it is very soft and wispy. Hard to discipline children with a voice like this. I have a pot and a spoon that I am supposed to use to get their attention when I need them. I broke the spoon, sigh. They still didn't come to help me. I went to go out side and the dogs were so excited to see me that they were jumping on me. I tried to make my "eck" sound which means down. Didn't work. I ended up being puppy battered and had to beat a retreat to the house. This is very frustrating to me. I know it has only been a week and the doctor had said that it can take up to three weeks for the nerve to recover from the stress. I understand that intellectually, but there is still that little niggle at the back of my mind, that little worry. What if it is permanent? I had one of the best surgeons in the country. He did an amazing job with my surgery. There were no complications and I am healing well, all will be fine. I need to stop worrying. I tell myself this over and over. And I sing softly, "The long and winding road that leads to your door."


  1. I do hope you get your voice back quickly - no fun to have the kids/ furbabies not listen to you!

  2. Oh Pel, how I laughed at the idea of you banging the pot with a spoon. You poor bugger.
    You'll be fine in no time! :)

  3. I broke that spoon, I really did! Dang kids. I can talk in a normal tone now but I still can not raise my voice. They are taking full advantage of it and playing "deaf". Sigh.
