So apparently... Answered
After taking a devastating kick to the throat CO my little nephew (yeah, he's gonna be quite the Steven Seagal), my voice pitch has increased about an octave and my NY accent is totally gone (not that I'm going to miss it). My sister says it's temporary, but I can only hope. This happened Thursday of last week, and there's barely any improvement. If anyone else has taken a blow like this, please tell me about your experiences and the result.
