I came down with full fledged, nary a decibel laryngitis Sunday. I scoured the web looking for the latest treatment (cure?) advice. Nope. Still the same. Lots of rest and fluids and a minimum of talking. Luckily clients are so far willing to wait, but this could take a week according to the web advice! Poop.

Ugh. So sorry you're silent.

Tea is part of my daily routine right now, especially toddy style with some lovely bourbon and lemon. Voice is up from 0% to about 10% right now, but I'm not pushing it at all. I wish we'd learned ASL a long time ago. It would be so useful at times.

Get a little bell you can ring when you need something. Emma will love that Wink

Hope you are 100% soon.

Avoid caffeine and decongestants/antihistamines (they rob us of water). Also, try moisturizing your cords by carefully inhaling steam. Feel better soon!
