I can't believe that the nurses and ddoctors are not seeing the connection between having somethng jammed down his throat and his voice sounding funny. I don't mean to be harsh, but that's just a big "DUH!"
My dd was on a vent after birth, and it is expected that kids who are will have a recovery period where their vocal cords sound strained. She sounded liek a kitten at first- it was so sad. But eventually they got better. If they suctioned him with a dilli tube, there alomst surely was meconium present. Sometimes it doesn't show when you're water breaks. It's not something that's really routine, from what I have heard. My dd also had severe meconium, and I knwo it's scarrey- but she almsot died from it. It is a very serious thing. Give your little guy some time to recover, a few weeks isn't really going to make a big difference in treatment if there is nerve problem.
