This video clip shows what my speech sounded like, five weeks after the stroke, in March 2010.
(Note: It's hard to follow that I was trying to say, of course! I was trying to say--in a nutshell-- is: "my memories of those first few weeks are already fading. Your brain can't remember everything! But I also I think that I've been listening more intensely, especially the first week at MGH, because listening was all I could do." If you're bored, you could fast-forward it the end, to see my demonstration of my arm movement.)
My love and thanks for my family, especially Neal, are beyond words, especially for being there at that scary time.
