Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed...

I did it! I sang with L at bedtime. I mangled the lyrics, but L cut me some slack.

The song book that finally got L and I singing was her preschool song book, from two years ago. The lyrics were very (very!)familiar, and sometimes I could fudge it, if I need to.

Lindsay Wagner, eat your heart out

Yesterday Cindy and I went to the hospital to wire me up with a Holter moniter, in just in case there's something funny with my heart. Neal said I look like the Bionic Woman.

Two aphasiacs walked in to a bar...

Today dad and I went to an aphasia support group and picnic. As my therapist said, a group of aphasics can be really loud!

I go to speech therapy  for my aphasia 4x a week with my great teachers at Spaulding. For example, this post took me about an hour (even more) to complete.

Aphasia (pronounced /əˈfeɪʒə/ or pronounced /əˈfeɪziə/) is an acquired language disorder in which there is an impairment of any language modality. This may include difficulty in producing or comprehending spoken or written language. (From Wikipedia.)

Boston University has an Aphasia Resource Center that's been running for 20 years.
