So, my visit to the ENT went "ok." The red dot is a blood vessel and the inflammation and problems I'm having in his opinion is not from singing or overuse of the voice. There's no explanation really why I have this blood vessel on my right vocal fold. So, I am now having a micro direct operative laryngoscopy done on Wed. April 13th where they will remove the blood vessel. I won't be able to talk for 5-7 days and will not be able to sing for 4-6 weeeks. UGH!!! So, lots of writing things down and using a dry erase board! Everything should be fine afterwards. So, in a few months all this should be behind me!!!!! It'll be nice to be able to sing in a full voice again!!!!
