I alluded to earlier that there was more then one miracle. Before I was slated to go to VBH - I still had the dreaded trachea in - there was a respiratory tech who was examining me. She was about to leave when she stopped and said “You know, I’ve been doing this for 31 years. There is always voice deterioration with a trachea to one degree or another. Always. I’ve never seen an exception. Until now. Your voice is so powerful that it has stayed the same. God had maintained my voice!
