who gets excited over a grocery list?
I did. My mom was able to write down a few items that she needed for the house. I see it as improvement in her memory of word recognition. Since her stroke, its been a slow recovery. It’s a reminder to me about patience, faith, and hope. In the fast pace of the world we tend to forget just how important it is to slow down.
Her stroke affected her speech, and memory of words, letters, numbers, — she forgot how to do mathematics.
I also believe her vision is slightly blurred.
It’s constant adapting and relearning.
When she is outside of therapy, we are using YouTube to teach her. The next step is to incorporate flash cards, and handouts that they used to give us in kindergarten and first grade.
