The Fuzzy Black Box

My mother had a stroke over the weekend. It seems to have burned out her speech center. For quite some time, all she could get out was "yes" or "no." It was clear that she was all there, she just could not communicate. That was Saturday. By Monday night, she was speaking in phrases. What a strange thing the brain is.


  1. Whew. It's still hard, but your mom is stubborn.

  2. Yes that is the truth. She continues to make considerable progress with the speech and is in good spirits today.
