I've been struck down by your of the many nasty bugs going around.
I'm finally (mostly) on the mend, except for that I have completely and entirely lost my voice. Not just the scratchy hoarse voice of a normal cold, but full-on, I couldn't scream for help if my life depended on it. I can whisper if I need to, but it hurts, so I'm trying not to, unless it's necessary.
I'm not sure this has ever happened to me.
It was kind of fun at first, but I'm rapidly getting to the point where I'd just like to be able to talk.
One side benefit was that is has cut down on Widget's constant stream of 6 year old chatter - if she can't get answers back, she seems to have decided that it's better to simply be still.
Turns out this is a doubly good bonus, since now she's home sick with the same bug.
Hope y'all are well!
