I'm sure this topic has been covered but it was a little difficult to find. I just wanted to know how long it has taken for any of your preemies vocal chords to heal after intubation removal. My son has been to the doctor and checked out. He is fine, meaning there is no paralysis of the chords. I am concerned because his cry is so soft, you can hardly hear him. He does scream out and he's loud but the crying is so soft. It's been 9 months since he's been home and he has no medical issues. He is developing fine but that is something that I wonder about.
