Laryngospasms

January 12, 2017

This will be a very short article.  About a week before Christmas I got a cold.  That cold turned into an upper respiratory infection and a nagging cough.  On Christmas my throat closed up while coughing for about 30 seconds.  Scared the crap outta me, but I'm not going to the Emergency Room on Christmas, that's a good way to get a Somali Doctoral Intern to treat you like a human pincushion.  The spasms then began to increase in frequency and length and I knew they weren't going away on their own.  

 

Went to Emergency Room a few days later, then my doctor, then an ENT.  Spasms cannot be fixed, just the symptoms that caused the spasms.  So Beacon of Speech is on hold while I struggle to talk (the more I talk, the more I cough, the more I cough, the better the chances that the spasms return) and struggle to breathe. For those who know me well, you will be pleased to know that the more I talk, the more I am punished....

 

Tentative return date for Audio Versions of Beacon of Speech are now pushed to end of January.
