T-3: Arriving in LA

I landed in LA after a 10 hour flight from Shanghai. I’m from New York, but moved to Shanghai 15 months ago. It’s nice to be back in the USA, and nice to be in California, but I’m filled with anxiety about the operation. I try to check-in at Tiverton House at 10am, but they tell me to come back at 3pm. I go have breakfast at Denny’s down the street, then call my childhood friend Craig who lives in LA and we go hang out at the Getty Museum, which is beautiful.

Here is a sample of my pre-op voice from about a week earlier. My spasmodic dysphonia varied quite a bit and this was on a “bad voice day” with minimal effort on my part to avoid the spasms.
