    thank you to everyone who commented last week.  With your help, I have decided on the rhetoric I am going to use with my students overall.  That is that I had throat surgery over the summer (which is why my voice is funny) and I am getting better now.  For the upper level students and those who work in my office, I may go into more detail if I feel as though we should in a specific conversation, but I have asked my colleagues to simply report that I had throat surgery, and asked that they not use the terms "cancer" or "radiation" but to leave those conversations to me to have directly one-on-one with students if I felt it was necessary to have them.  I appreciate very much the input and feel much more confident going into the semester having worked through that communications issue.
