"The End" and a trip....
Tuesday, December 14, 2010
So, Hairspray ended this weekend. We sold out every performance and it was amazing and awesome and was the event that forced me forward into my future. 12 performances in 9 days. Yes, that's right. Needless to say, my body is wracked. I am blessed and happy, and amazingly exhilarated to see how my future unfolds.
During this run, my voice hadn't been at 100% and had to sing with swollen vocal cords, hoarseness, and had to use my vocal techniques to get through. I'm glad it worked. I went to an ENT doc this afternoon, and was rewarded with getting to actually see my sinus and vocal cords with a camera. The doctor forcefully injected a decongestant and an anaesthetic so he could get the camera in my sinus without pain. It was cool and educational and could see that my vocal cords were still swollen and red (with no nodes, thank Jebuddallahkrishna) but I believe the drugs made their way into my gut and stewed around in there, and I got the cramps, the gas, and the inevitable emptying of the stomach. Yay. And I had a gig tonight too. Oh well. I have only eaten breakfast, and though the majority of the drama is gone, I still have a cramp or two hanging out. Ugh. Not the way I was hoping to end my evening.
So, no eating OR working out today. Yay. Not.
AND...I'm leaving to drive up north to Humboldt County tomorrow morning so that I can rehearse for a gig on Friday. No, I'm not busy. *sheesh*
