He looks so much better. Things are kicking in! Yes. On Thursday we had our 500mgs of methoprednisone followed by a dental procedure. It started with the standard, nothing by mouth, so naturally that was the night before. I was so thankful to have my sister with me. They let me carry him back went it was time. He had fallen asleep waiting on them. So he woke up to going into the surgical room. I was in the gear they give you to simply enter the room. He was most displeased with the fact I had on a surgical hat. But soon none of that matter because he was snoring again. They fixed his cavities, cleaned his teeth, and scoped his throat. The scope was on order from the voice doctor who asked the next time Gary was put under, he wanted a peak. Here is what he found:
I know ewww.
But this is what they are suppose to look like:
They are suppose to be thin and white. I know my friend Summer has struggled with the same thing. The hoarse voice. What to do about it. The doctor explained if this was Gary's only concern we would inject steroids right into the vocal cord. Gary, however, has much more to deal with. He wants him to start voice therapy for now. We hope it will get better with time and age but as long as JDM is at work, what is the point. Least of our worries I suppose. What bothers me a little bit is his colon looked the same as the lesion looking vocal cord.
The great thing right now is he is feeling better. Walking better. Talking better, everything better. I do have a fat lip from being head butted by him. He thought a good wrestling move was a full on face slam.
Spent Friday night as Angelina Jolie.
