Hi Patrick, Big breakthrough recently and I am now finding that I can keep the milk spout held through exercises. A long way to go of course but something suddenly seems to have taken shape. Still have some pain but it is going and so I think it was just an unusual use of undeveloped muscles in the face/jaw. I now notice that although I’m not pushing the exercise range much (still on Singing C – G above stave) at the end of exercises the note is easily able to slur past high C without any pushing. Small steps but an occasional leap has certainly helped mentally as for a while I kept apparently going around in progress circles. Keep it up.
