I haven't blogged since August? Really? Wow time flies. Well time to update you with the goings on.
My brother-in-law James' surgery was successful. They were able to get all the cancer they believe and have already done the reconstruction on his neck, jaw and ear. He has to go through a round of chemo & radiation for precautionary reasons, but other than that, he's already back home and doing much better than expected. He was so lucky that most of the cancer had grown inside the tumor on his neck and had enough blood flow and heat that it remained there instead of spreading to the rest of his body...the doctors said that he was VERY fortunate. Seriously, thank you for all your well wishes...please keep sending them his way while he goes through the chemo and continues his recovery...I really believe that good thoughts out there truly shape the universe.
On the singing front...Don Giovanni was a success and it looks like they're adding 2 more performances in late September...Opening night was completely packed even with the Hurricane that came through on Saturday night...go figure. My next few roles are Adele in Die Fledermaus, to be performed in late December so I have to start learning that ASAP!...I also have to learn Giannetta in L'elisir d'Amore to be performed in January and Lucy in The Telephone to be performed in the Spring. I have a full calendar through 2009 it seems...that's really exciting...hope I remember to get some sleep...lol.
Ok kids, back to the grind.
Have a great day!
I've also been sticking with my eating regiment for the past two weeks, with one cheat day per week...and it's going really well. I'm steadily losing poundage and am starting to get my footing again.
