The cat has my tongue?

For those who are wondering why the recent silence on The Good Raised Up, I have had a case of laryngitis. True, laryngitis does not affect the fingers, but it had zapped my energy for a few days, mostly because of the dry cough that kept me up for a few nights and which can accompany the loss of voice.

I believe I am over the worst of it, or at least I certainly hope so.

The best part of the experience--if there can be a "best part" of being sick--is that I was able to use sign language with my sweetie who was so wonderfully kind and patient in caring for me over the past few days. (Thanks, hun!)

Blessings,
Liz

Hope you feel better soon, Liz! I'll keep you (and your throat!) in my prayers tonight.

Well, the doc says I ought to expect several more days of this, at the very least. :(

...And I can now attest to the fact that even the smallest bit of talking after the longest stretch of NOT talking can set me back to where I was just 24 hours earlier.

Thanks for your prayers and good wishes, everyone.

Blessings,
Liz

Hey, I think I have the first known case of laryngitis contracted via blogging. Or maybe it's just coincidence, stemming from my uncontrolled contact with preschoolers, but I don't know. In any case, I should have paid more attention when said preschoolers were learning sign language.
