As you might have read from my sister, I've had my issues over the past month (pneumonia and MRSA). It could be any day now that I get my new set of lungs. For about a month, I was unable to talk. I'm sure you could imagine how frustrating that is, especially when you're trying to discuss problems with doctors and nurses. I finally got my voice back, with the use of a trachea with speaking valve. I was able to get a hidden camera prefer how I lost my voice in the first place. It sort of went down like this:
Thanks to modern medicine, I finally have my voice back! My phone is always with me, in case I get "THE CALL" that I have lungs ready for me! Pray, pray, pray that it happens soon, soon, soon!
