Did I ever tell you that after my thyroidectomy my voice was terribly messed up? It wasn't just like a scratchy, I lost my voice kind of messed up. My vocal cords/vocal cord nerves got damaged and my voice was about five octaves higher than normal. Seriously...I'm not exaggerating. My brothers called me Michael Jackson. I sounded like a 5 year old girl. It was like that for six weeks, and then one morning I woke up and my voice was miraculously back to normal.
Thought you might enjoy that tidbit of information.
