Lost my voice

I lost my voice!! I don't feel sick in any way. I don't have a cold. I don't have a flu. I feel fine. But it hurts to talk and I can barely talk above a whisper!

I called everyone in the level 4 class tonight and in the raspiest broken voice told them all that class will be postponed by one week. Unfortunately there is absolutely no one to take my afternoon pole party for me. All my other instructors have plans this afternoon. I have no idea how this party is going to work. But you can't just cancel some one's bachelorette party. They only get that party once in their life (hopefully) and you can't ruin it because you can't talk. So as much pain as this might cause me, I'll be teaching in a couple hours.

I'm concerned about this because if I'm not completely well by March 1st, they will cancel my surgery. And it's not like I can just shut down the business to reschedule it. At the same time I don't want to give up my private lessons on Monday and Tuesdays either. I'm about to go 2 months with no income (to recover from surgery). I would rather not make it 2 months PLUS another week this week!!! At least private lessons are only 1 hour. If I can just get through the pole party this afternoon I will be able to mostly rest my voice this week.

Guaifenesen - and rest your voice, but there's a reason singers call it the miracle drug.
Gah that sucks!!! Here's to wishing you a speedy recovery.
