Subject: Kendall's next operation
From: kendall
Date: 04 Apr 08 - 07:42 PM

Since everything else has failed to restore my voice, I am now scheduled to have another operation just after Indian Neck on May 14th.
This one will consist of an implant of cadaver skin into the gap that was left when they removed the cancer.

Wish me luck, this is probably the last hope.

Karen's Dad did this if you're talking about Cymetra. Its an injectable, cadver skin based, goo that fills the space and a simple procedure they have had good success with for temporary repairs. Or are you doing something newer with the cadaver skin?   All my best thoughts will be with you for a success.

I don't know what the actual procedure looks like, but the Doctor says he has had a lot of success with it. Seems kinda weird to stick a piece of a dead person into my vocal cord, but I'll try anything.

Kendalldarlin', remember what the Great Spirit has already brought you through. I give thanks for a complete and successful outcome for you, that your voice is restored to you. I give thanks for this or something better for the highest good of all concerned.

And, as the others have said, it is YOU, living in that body, whom we love, vocal or not...we love you.

Feel those vibes, darlin'!

Kendall, just watch out when they put in the bolt to hold it all together - those suckers can be a real nuisance when it comes to necking!

Take care and all the best. Now there's just 5 weeks of crapping yourself to get through.

*sings*

You gotta have skin,
All you really need is skin
Skin's the thing that if you've got it outside
It helps keep your insides in...


Seriously though, keeping my fingers crossed for you that this works. You already know we love you for yourself, voice or not, but I understand how you feel - when you are a performer, you can't help feeling that your voice is so much a part of who you are. So lots of healing vibes coming from Oz.

Thanks to everyone - I know that your good wishes mean a lot to Kendall and they certainly do to me as well.

From what the surgeon told us when we were talking about procedures they will implant freeze dried cadaver skin in the hope that

a) Kendall's body won't absorb it, as has been the case with the two previous procedures

b) His own cells will start to grow round the implant and fill the gap naturally.

His surgeon is loathe to use any artificial fillers, in view of the radiotherapy that Kendall had to undergo when the cancer first appeared. That compromised Kendall's immune system and there is always the danger that non-natural fillers could cause an infection that might ultimately lead to the vocal cord having to be removed.

We saw a speech specialist in Boston last year who, as some of you are aware, helped Kendall with voice exercises that led to his being able to perform at the Getaway last November. That guy said that this type of cancer is becoming more prevalent and that there is a lot of research being done to try and restore damaged cords. We're hoping that this procedure works but I ain't giving up hope if it's not a success. I love Kendall just as he is but I know how much it means to him to have a voice restored.

Awrighty then, it's time to haul out the big guns. Within sight of St. Patrick's Church, in the wee town of Parnell, Michigan, and just down the road from Grattan, Michigan, is the Monastery of the Carmelite Nuns of Ada (Parnell) Michigan. These cloistered Sisters are mighty in the wielding of the power of prayer. I think it is time for a visit with the Mother Prioress, and sick her on your wrinkled old ars......... ouch ....... Sorry, Mother ..... on your problem. I'm afraid the aul vocal chords really are just going to have to respond if I sic these ladies on you.

But your knuckles might not survive, should you make any more randy comments about Dani............

I'm with you, as always, Cap'n.

All the best,

Speaking of Kendall's wrinkled old ass, maybe some cadaver skin would help out there as well. Better yet maybe they just do a complete ass transplant......fix him up with some gigantic ass from someone who passed on from obesity.

Maybe they could also transplant some working genitals as well or at least something that would work without both massive quantities of Mycoxaphalen (generic Viagra) and implanted hydraulics. The last time Kendall blew a line, the hydraulic fluid ruined not just the sheets but the mattress as well and he and Jacqui had to scrub down with GoJo and Lava soap.
