Rachael Ray has Vocal Cord Surgery

Well, Rachael Ray's nightmare of not being able to speak for a few weeks appears to have come true! People reported that Rachael underwent vocal cord surgery last week. Her rep said: "After several months of vocal therapy and on the advice of her doctors, Rachael decided to have a benign cyst removed from her vocal cord. According to Rachael's doctors the minor, non-invasive procedure was a success and she is already resting at home." You may recall that this procedure was supposed to happen before the holidays, but Rachael hoped to be able to fix the problem with therapy. We wish Rach a speedy recovery!

UPDATE: Rach wrote on her blog about how she's doing.

  1. I am so happy that Rachael had the surgery and that she is feeling so well. She was in my prayers.

  2. Its going to be strange if she sounds different when she recovers. My son may not recognize her voice any more!

  3. I was wondering if she was going to have to have this done - I hope she recovers soon!
